Tamara Tunie Will Offer Yes, I Sing! at Feinstein's This Fall
16 Aug 2012
Stage and screen star Tamara Tunie, who appeared on Broadway in the Denzel Washington Julius Caesar, will play a week at Feinstein's at Loews Regency this fall.
Tunie's new show, which is entitled Yes, I Sing!, will be presented Oct. 30-Nov. 3. The evening of re-imagined show tunes and jazz standards will feature musical direction by Mike Renzi.
“It’s time,” Tunie said in a statement. “I missed singing. I missed performing in a nightclub. I grew up in Pittsburgh, and regularly, my parents would take us to the Holiday House Supper Club to see acts like Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Ben Vereen, Freda Payne, Stephanie Mills, and the Temptations, to name a few. I also want to be able to sing until the day I die! It makes me happy! And if you don't use it, you LOSE it!”
Tunie will be seen this fall in Paramount’s "Flight," in which she co-stars opposite Denzel Washington. She is perhaps best known as Medical Examiner Melinda Warner on NBC’s long-running “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
The performance has a $30 cover charge with $50 premium seats available, in addition to a $25 food and beverage minimum.
The club is located at 540 Park Avenue at 61st Street in New York City. For ticket reservations and club information, call (212) 339-4095 or visit Feinsteinsatloewsregency.com and TicketWeb.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.
