The celebrated singing actress will play the intimate venue through Sept. 8. The evenings feature direction by Scott Burkell and musical direction by Joseph Thalken.
Mazzie is backed by Thalken on piano, Peter Donovan on bass, Larry Saltzman on guitar and Larry Lelli on percussion.
54 Below notes for Mazzie's new show read: "You think you know three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie from her corseted characters in Ragtime and Passion or maybe from the scene-chewing screwballs of Kiss Me, Kate and Spamalot or possibly you thought you gained a glimpse of her as the valium-induced bipolar star of Next to Normal (heaven help us if that is really her in the guise of Margaret in Carrie!). Come see and hear the real Marin Mazzie as she steps back into her formative years with an evening of fun and fantasy as we get inside the head of a Midwest girl and the music she loved."
Show times are Sept. 4-6 at 8:30 PM and Sept. 7-8 at 8:30 PM and 11 PM.
