Singer-actress Julie Halston offers a month-long engagement of her one-woman show, Classical Julie, beginning March 4 at Birdland as part of the Broadway at Birdland concert series.

Presented as a one-night-only evening in July at Birdland, Classical Julie returns for Monday nights at 7 PM throughout the month of March. Performances are held March 4, 11, 18 and 25.

Classical Julie, according to press notes, "offers classic Halston rants (New York Times wedding announcements and Joan Crawford, among them) along with brand new material, including her — brace yourselves! — fresh takes on Shakespeare, Ibsen and other writers of considerable renown."

Halston was Drama Desk-nominated for her performances in The Divine Sister, White Chocolate and Red Scare on Sunset. Her Broadway credits include Anything Goes, Twentieth Century, Gypsy, Hairspray, The Women and The Man Who Came to Dinner.
