Cabaret favorite Andrea Marcovicci, who was a mainstay at the now-closed Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room for over two decades, will workshop her latest cabaret and concert act at The Gardenia in June.

Marcovicci's newest show, which is entitled Let's Get Lost, will be presented June 27-28 at 9 PM at the West Hollywood venue. Her musical director is Shelly Markham.

"Andrea celebrates the composers that make her smile, tug at her heartstrings, as well as fun arrangements that make her heart skip a beat," according to press notes. Songs will include "Two for the Road," "These Foolish Things," "A Fine Romance," "Bill" and "New Words," among others.

Marcovicci released her latest recording, which is titled "Smile," via CDBaby.com. The new recording features musical director/arranger Shelly Markham on piano, Kevin Axt on bass, M.B. Gordy on drums/percussion, Grant Geissman on guitar, banjo and ukulele, Giovanna Clayton on cello, Jeff Brunnell on cornet, flugelhorn and trumpet and James Honeyman on soprano and tenor saxophone.

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."
