The Metropolitan Room Will Salute the Late Elaine Stritch Aug. 7
19 Jul 2014
The Metropolitan Room (34 W. 22nd Street) will salute the life of the late Broadway and screen legend Elaine Stritch in a one-night-only event Aug. 7 at 7:00 PM.
The cabaret venue's owner, Bernard Furshpan, will host the evening; casting is still to be announced.
According to press notes, "audiences can expect to hear some of Stritch's favorite songs, like 'The Ladies Who Lunch', 'Why Do The Wrong People Travel?' and many more. A portion of the evening's proceeds will benefit Stritch's favorite charity."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
