On April 6 two-time Tony nominee Mary Testa, back on Broadway in the revival of Guys and Dolls, will perform her one-woman show, Sleepless Variations at 9:30 PM.

Testa will be backed by orchestrator/musical director Michael Starobin on piano. Side Show Tony nominee Emily Skinner will perform her solo show, Broadway Her Way, April 19 at 7 PM. Expect tunes by Rodgers, Sondheim, Gershwin, Kern and Berlin as well as several up-n-coming composers.
