PHOTO CALL: Tommy Tune, Joel Grey and Colin Donnell Celebrate Laura Osnes' Cafe Carlyle Debut
By Matthew Blank
Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes, who will return to Broadway in a revised version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, made her cabaret debut June 19 at the Café Carlyle in an exclusive two-week engagement.
The recent Bonnie and Clyde star will play the intimate nightspot through June 30.
Osnes, who is offering an evening of songs culled from Broadway and the Great American Songbook, as well as from the worlds of jazz and folk, is accompanied by a quartet led by musical director Fred Lassen on piano. Joe Langworth directs.
"Getting to perform at the Café Carlyle, following in the footsteps of women like Elaine Stritch, Barbara Cook, Christine Ebersole, Kelli O’Hara, and so many of my other idols, is nothing short of a dream come true," Osnes said in a previous statement.
The June 28-30 performances of Tony Award nominee Osnes' engagement will be recorded for future release on the Broadway Records label. On those dates she will be joined by special guests Jeremy Jordan (June 28), Tom Wopat (June 29) and Max Crumm (June 30).
Osnes performs Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8:45 PM.
There is a $65 music charge ($45, bar) for the Tuesday-Thursday performances, a $75 music charge ($45, bar) for the shows on Friday and Saturday. Dinner is served from 6:30 PM.
For reservations call (212) 744-1600. For additional information visit www.thecarlyle.com. The Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle Hotel, 35 E. 76th Street at Madison Avenue.
