The evening, which, of course, also celebrates Marcovicci's 60th birthday, begins at 8 PM. Shelly Markham is the concert's musical director.

"Join three-time Academy award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and Grammy award-winner Julie Gold," read press notes for the one-night-only event, "along with other noted ASCAP composers Francesca Blumenthal, John Bucchino, Craig Carnelia, Babbie Green, Christine Lavin [and Tom Toce] as they celebrate Andrea's dedication to the Great American Songbook. The evening not only includes contemporary songs from these guest artists but Andrea performs classic standards from Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, and more."

Marcovicci's mother, torch singer Helen Marcovicci, will also make a special appearance to celebrate her own 90th birthday.

Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the short-lived musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include roles in "The Front," "Someone to Love," "Jack the Bear," "Who Is Henry Jaglom?," "The Water Engine" and "Trapper John, M.D." It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singer-actress has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and in concert halls throughout the world. Her solo albums are numerous and include "Marcovicci Loves Movies," "What Is Love?," "Just Kern," "December Songs," "New Words," "Live from London" and "Some Other Time."

Marcovicci's retrospective CD, "As Time Goes By: The Best of Andrea Marcovicci," is newly available. The single CD features material from six out-of-print CDs — "Marcovicci Sings Movies," "What is Love?," "Just Kern," "Always, Irving Berlin," "Live From London" and "Some Other Time" — as well as tunes from "New Words, "Here There and Everywhere" and "If I Were a Bell — The Songs of Frank Loesser." The singing actress also recorded two new tracks for the disc: "The Lies of Handsome Men" and "Young at Heart." The Town Hall is located in Manhattan at 123 West 43rd Street.
