28 Dec 2012
Ann Crumb, who starred in the original London and Broadway productions of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love, will appear in concert at Pennsylvania's The Media Theatre Feb. 1-3, 2013.
Crumb's concert is titled In the Men's Room and will feature songs written for and made famous by men. Music director Tom Fosnocht will accompany on piano; Jesse Cline directs.
“The songs will be a selection of great numbers from composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, and Richard Rodgers,” Crumb said in a statement. “The concert will be reflective of my experiences and my memories of performing on some of the world’s great stages.”
Nominated for the Tony Award when she appeared in Anna Karenina, Crumb is also well known for creating the role of Rose in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love, both when it appeared in London’s West End and on Broadway. She has appeared on almost every regional theatre stage in the Philadelphia region and recently won a Best Actress Award for her work in Sunset Boulevard in Colorado. She is the recipient of a Barrymore Award and an Arts Recognition Award.

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.
