After an acclaimed run at the Carlyle last April, O'Hara reprises the evening of song that higlights her stage career and her recent solo debut recording. The concerts, which run through Sept. 26, also mark O'Hara's New York stage return following the birth of her son in June.
Accompanying O'Hara is musical director Dan Lipton on piano, in a quartet that also features bass, drums and violin.
Songs included in O'Hara's spring engagement were "What More Do I Need?," "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy," "Take Me to the World," "That's How I Say Goodbye," "The Boy Next Door," "The Light in the Piazza," "Hey There," "Fable," "The Sun Went Out," "Here Now," "And So It Goes," "I Love You The World," "Opera-Country," "Make Someone Happy" and "I Could Have Danced All Night."
Following her Café Carlyle engagement, O'Hara will return to the Tony-winning revival of South Pacific at the Vivian Beaumont Theater Oct. 13. In anticipation of her first child, the actress began a hiatus from the production last March.
Kelli O'Hara was honored with Tony nominations for her work in the Tony-winning revivals of South Pacific, The Pajama Game and the Tony-winning musical The Light in the Piazza. On Broadway she has appeared in Jekyll & Hyde, Follies, Sweet Smell of Success and Dracula, the Musical. Her album, "Wonder in the World," is currently available on the Ghostlight Records label.
