Jessica Hendy, last seen on Broadway in Amour, teams up with cellist Jacob Yates for covers of contemporary hit songs. Here's a look at their versions of "…Baby One More Time," "Edge of Glory" and "Call Me Maybe/What Makes You Beautiful."
Hendy met Yates, a classically trained musician, during the run of Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati's Next to Normal, where she starred as Diana Goodman and he was a member of the production's orchestra.
The singing actress will also offer her cabaret show Take What You Want Sept. 10 at the M Bar in Los Angeles. At the 8 PM concert, she will be joined by Mike Schwitter, who is currently on tour with the The Book of Mormon and was also seen in Cincinnati's Next to Normal.

You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
