Tony winner Betty Buckley, who scored rave reviews in the recent London debut of Jerry Herman's Dear World, will offer an evening of song to benefit New York's Signature Theatre.
Entitled Betty Buckley: Signature Songs, the Sept. 30 fundraiser will be held in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center to support the Legacy Program in honor of Horton Foote.
The evening will begin with cocktails at 6:30 PM followed by the 7:30 PM concert.
Beginning Aug. 20 Buckley will be seen in Signature’s world-premiere production of Foote’s The Old Friends, which will be directed by Michael Wilson and co-star Hallie Foote and Lois Smith.
The Pershing Square Signature Center is located at 480 West 42nd Street. Tickets start at $150. To purchase tickets and for more information, call (646) 388-8118 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Betty Buckley offered acclaimed performances in Broadway's Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, Triumph of Love and Promises, Promises. She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises, Dear World and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter. Her screen credits are numerous.
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.
