Helsinki Hudson, the upstate New York venue that offers eclectic music programming in a complex that also serves drinks and fine dining, will get a dose of Broadway star quality in a new series of cabarets acts in its Club space. Faith Prince, Jason Graae, Brent Barrett and Dee Hoty are lined up for late-summer gigs.



The "Helsinki On Broadway Sunday Broadway Cabaret Series" begins 7 PM Aug. 26 with Tony Award winner Faith Prince (Guys and Dolls) and Jason Graae (The Grand Tour) in The Prince and the Showboy, with music director Alex Rybeck.

The appearances are presented by Club Helsinki Hudson in association with Showstoppers New York. Club Helsinki Hudson is in Hudson, NY.

In the opening attraction, Prince and Graae will sing their most requested Broadway tunes. It also features a tribute to Broadway composer Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!; Mame).

The schedule also includes:

Sept. 9
Brent Barrett
Night Songs
Music Director: Christopher Denny
Directed by: Barry Kleinbort

"One of Broadway's favorite leading men, Brent Barrett has delighted audiences of the Great White Way and London's West End in Grand Hotel, Chicago, Candide, Kiss Me Kate and Annie Get You Gun, among others. For Night Songs, think everything from "The Music of the Night" to "Rhythm of the Night" to "You and the Night and Music."

Sept. 23
Dee Hoty
Special Material
Music Director: John McDaniel
Directed by: Lee Tannen

"Dee Hoty has distinguished herself as one of Broadway's favorite leading ladies. She has earned Tony Award nominations for her starring roles in The Will Rogers Follies, The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public and Footloose. Dee takes an often funny, sometimes poignant and occasionally downright irreverent look at her life and loves, on and off stage. Dee explores what it's like to live alone...and like it!"

Dinner reservations can be made at 5 PM or 8:30 PM in The Restaurant, adjacent to The Club (which also serves food). For reservations, call (518) 828-4800. Club Helsinki is at 405 Columbia Street in Hudson, NY. Visit helsinkihudson.com.
