Some of Broadway's brightest stars came out in support of Rebecca Luker and her return engagement of Rebecca Luker sings Jerome Kern at 54 Below, the new performance venue located beneath the famed Studio 54.
Rebecca Luker returned to the new Broadway nightspot on May 9 for a reprise engagement of her evening of Jerome Kern classics, Rebecca Luker sings Jerome Kern. Luker is a three-time Tony Award nominee — as Best Actress in a Musical for Kern and Hammerstein's Show Boat (1995) and The Music Man (2000), and Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Mary Poppins, in which she played Mrs. Banks.
PS Classics, released a new album from Luker's titled "I Got Love: Songs of Jerome Kern" on Jan. 29. The new solo studio recording is inspired by Luker's 54 Below cabaret of Kern songs, which originally played in summer 2012.
