Entitled Blue Angels and Demons, Lemper will play the posh nightspot through Feb. 25. The concerts, according to press notes, will take audiences on a “musical journey through Berlin cabaret songs, Yiddish tunes, a walk on the Weill side, with a wink to George Gershwin.” Lemper will be accompanied by Vana Gierig on piano, Mark Lambert on acoustic guitar, Dan Falzone on bass and Todd Turkisher on drums.
The singing actress will offer shows Tuesday-Saturday nights at 8:45 PM with late shows Fridays and Saturdays at 10:45 PM. Cover charges range from $75-$85; there is no minimum.
