Tony winner Betty Buckley, who is currently playing a month-long run at Feinstein's at Loews Regency with her new show The Other Woman: The Vixens of Broadway, will play a week's engagement at San Francisco's The RRazz Room.

Buckley, who will be seen in the upcoming London revival of Jerry Herman's Dear World, will offer the Bay Area debut of her critically acclaimed Ah Men! The Boys of Broadway Oct. 30-Nov. 4. The show, which is based on her new CD, allows the Tony-winning actress to perform men's songs from Broadway shows that she has always wanted to sing, including numbers from Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Guys and Dolls, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever, Pippin, Mame and La Cage Aux Folles.

Betty Buckley offered acclaimed performances in Broadway's Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, Triumph of Love and Promises, Promises. She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter. Her screen credits are numerous. Buckley will be inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame in 2013.
