Ute Lemper, who has starred in both the London and Broadway productions of Chicago, will return to Joe's Pub — the intimate cabaret located within the Public Theater — in August.
Lemper will offer The Bukowski Project Aug. 19-22.
The concerts are billed as "a journey through the poetry of Charles Bukowski from the books 'The Last Night of the Earth Poems,' 'What Matters Most Is How Well You Walk through the Fire' and 'You Get so Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense.'"
The Bukowski Project, with artistic idea and conception and music by Lemper, features additional composition and arrangements by Todd Turkisher and Vana Gierig.
Ute Lemper made her Broadway debut in the revival of Kander and Ebb's Chicago, and she is known throughout the world for her unique solo concerts that feature an eclectic array of material. She was named Billboard Crossover Artist of 1993-94, and her theatre credits feature roles in Peter Pan, Cabaret and Blue Angel. Lemper's many solo discs include "Ute Lemper Sings Kurt Weill," "Illusions," "Punishing Kiss," "Berlin Cabaret Songs" and "City of Strangers." Recent CD releases include "Blood & Feathers" (also on DVD) and "Between Yesterday and Tomorrow."
Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street. For ticket information visit www.joespub.com.
