Former Rent star Frenchie Davis, who was also a semi-finalist on the new NBC singing reality program "The Voice," will offer three concerts in Manhattan in February 2014.

Davis will play the Metropolitan Room Feb. 8, 2014, at 7 PM, Feb. 9 at 4 PM and Feb. 10 at 7 PM. Her new show is titled Frenchie Davis Presents: The French & Kat Show. Davis will be joined by "her musical soulmate/non-sexual life partner, pianist and comedian Kathryn Lounsbery."

"This Pop Cabaret," according to the Metropolitan Room website, "is one part Bach, two parts Kander & Ebb, a dash of Britney, and a sprinkle of Clair Huxtable all served in a Blanche Devereaux martini glass - neat. French and Kat draw audiences to their voluptuous musical bosoms with legit, inventive, and soulful arrangements of songs spanning every decade."

A finalist on the second season of "American Idol," Davis has starred on Broadway in Rent and in tours of Dreamgirls; Sing, Mahalia, Sing; and Ain't Misbehavin'. She also played the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella at Berkeley Playhouse.

The Metropolitan Room is located at 34 W. 22nd St. Click here for reservations.
