In You & the Night & the Music, according to press notes, "Bergman presents an international musical scrapbook and audience favorites. From the American songbook, she includes selections by Cole Porter ('I Love Paris'), Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz ('You and the Night and the Music'), George and Ira Gershwin ('Embraceable You'), Maury Yeston ('Home'), Adam Guettel ('Fable'), Carol King ('So Far Away') and John Denver ('Leaving on a Jet Plane'). Raised abroad as the daughter of an American diplomat and an actress, she pays tribute to her European roots with Parisian chanson ('Sour le Ciel de Paris'), Viennese operetta ('Vilia') and Italian opera ('Quando m'en Vo'), and pays homage to such artists as Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich."
Audiences can also expect to hear "Sei Lieb Zu Mir (Mean to Me)" by Fred E. Alhert and Roy Turk with English lyrics by Lothar Metzl and "Museum" by Addy Fieger and Francesca Blumenthal.
You & the Night & the Music is offered Oct. 15, Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 28-29 at 8 PM.
