The 7 PM and 9 PM concerts at the intimate venue celebrate the singing actress' 65th birthday and also mark the New York debut of her newest concert act, Moonlight Cocktail.
Moonlight Cocktail, according to press notes, "celebrates that bygone era of sophisticated nightlife of dining and dancing. From coast to coast, from large clubs to intimate boites, (Café Gala, Los Angeles; The Mocambo, Hungry i, San Francisco; Palmer House, Mr. Kelly’s, Chicago; Stork Club, The Blue Angel, New York) the singers that enthralled you became household names like Mabel Mercer, Bobby Short, Julie Wilson, Hildegarde, Portia Nelson, and Billie Holiday. Andrea’s nostalgic spin through the forties and fifties, when an evening began at one club before winding down with fine champagne at another, is filled with her unique insight, charm and wit."
Songs featured in the show include "You Fascinate Me So," "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup," "All in Fun," "Talk of the Town," "Some Other Time" and "Moonlight Cocktail."
Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include roles in "The Front," "Someone to Love," "Jack the Bear," "Who Is Henry Jaglom?," "The Water Engine" and "Trapper John, M.D." It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singer-actress has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and in concert halls throughout the world. Her solo albums are numerous and include "Marcovicci Loves Movies," "What Is Love?," "Just Kern," "December Songs," "New Words," "Live from London" and "Some Other Time."
