Former Wicked star Shoshana Bean will celebrate the release of her sophomore album, "O'Farrell Street," with a Feb. 20 concert at the Sayers Club in Los Angeles.



The ten-track album, a mix of soul, gospel and R&B, was released Feb. 12. Song titles include "Cold Turkey," "Blood from a Stone," "Quittin' Time," "Gin and Cigarrettes" and "Water."

Here's how the album is characterized: "Shoshana's unique take on vintage soul music of the late 1960's draws inspiration from artists like Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Sam Cooke. She has successfully created a sound that is simultaneously nostalgic and refreshing."

In addition to her run in Wicked and Jerry Mitchell's Peepshow in Las Vegas, Bean appeared in the original Broadway cast of Hairspray and in the Off-Broadway revival of Godspell. Her R&B album "Superhero" was released in 2008.

Tickets to the 9 PM concert begin at $30. A $250 VIP package is also available. Visit ShoshanaBean.com. The Sayers Club is located at 1645 Wilcox Avenue.
