Burns' Nov. 5 concert will celebrate the release of her debut solo recording, "A Deeper Shade of Red," which is due on the PS Classics label in early November. The recording marries two of Burns' inspirations: musical theatre tunes and songs penned by women singer-songwriters of the 1970's. The singing actress' Joe's Pub concert, according to press notes, will also feature "hilarious stories from her childhood . . . tales of being raised in a Latin-Jewish household, the humiliations of motherhood, and other growing pains." Show time is 9:30 PM.
