Natalie Joy Johnson, Molly Pope, Alexandra Silber, Elizabeth Stanley and Sarah Stiles perform songs from Evita, Into the Woods and Bare, as well as songs by Judy Garland and Dar Williams as part of writer, performer, director and Playbill.com contributor Ben Rimalower's The Lady's Got Potential concert April 7 at Birdland.
Rimalower hosts The Lady's Got Potential, described as "an evening of songs and conversation with some of the most exciting up and coming actresses working in musical theatre today," at 7 PM.
The evening is part of the Broadway at Birdland concert series.
The Lady's Got Potential, according to press notes, "is named after the song from Evita about the ambitious woman on the rise, and is an evening of songs performed by some of the most exciting up and coming actresses working in musical theatre today. Host Ben Rimalower (Patti Issues) was inspired to put this program together after the enormous response generated by his Playbill article of the same name."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
