T. Oliver Reid Will Debut Drop Me Off In Harlem at Feinstein's in November
25 Oct 2012
T. Oliver Reid, who appears in the New York City readings of Soap Dish, will make his Feinstein's at Loews Regency debut with his new show Drop Me Off In Harlem.
Lawrence Yurman musically directs the 10:30 PM performances, which will be held Nov. 28, Dec. 2-3 and Dec. 9.
Drop Me Off In Harlem, according to press notes, "is an evening of club-hopping to the music of Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and Andy Razaf…through the elegant nightclubs and working class speakeasies that made uptown gay and delightful, however dull and depressing downtown Manhattan could be. In 1934, on a Saturday night in New York City, if you were boozin' and jazzin', you were doing it in Harlem."
In Drop Me Off In Harlem, Reid will be joined by Ray Kilday, Trevor Neumann and Damien Bassman.
Reid has been seen on Broadway in Sister Act, Mary Poppins, The Wedding Singer, La Cage aux Folles, Never Gonna Dance, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Follies and Kiss Me, Kate.
Feinstein's at Loews Regency is located at 540 Park Avenue at 61st Street. There will be a $20 cover plus a one-drink minimum. For reservations, call (212) 339-4095. For more information, visit FeinsteinsAtTheRegency.com.
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.
