On May 24 and 25, the celebrated singer-actress will offer Back for Moore at the intimate cabaret located within the Public Theater. The concerts — featuring Moore’s new band — will include songs from her latest recording, “Back for Moore” (Purple Heart Records). Show times are 7:30 PM on May 24 and 9:30 PM on May 25. Melba Moore was last on Broadway in Les Misérables portraying the ill-fated Fantine. A singer with a multi-octave range, Moore began her career as a back-up singer for the likes of Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick and Liza Minnelli. Her work in the original company of Hair led to her Tony-winning role in Purlie, and since then Moore has performed in concert arenas throughout the world. Her R&B hits include “I Am His Lady,” “Falling” and “Read My Lips,” which was nominated for a Grammy Award. Moore was also recently seen in the Paramount film “The Fighting Temptations.”
