The acclaimed singing actor will offer Andrea Marcovicci Sings Rodgers & Hart February 14 at 9 PM. Her musical director is Shelly Markham.
Marcovicci will also entertain with “dashing and delightful gems from Dorothy Parker to H.L. Mencken to keep the focus on love, love, love!” Attendees can expect to hear such Rodgers and Hart classics as “My Funny Valentine,” “Thou Swell,” “This Can't Be Love,” “Falling in Love with Love,” “It Never Entered My Mind,” and “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered.”
In a statement Marcovicci said, “What makes these songs so enduring is the perfect match of lyric to music because Richard Rodgers wrote those luscious melodies first—which then inspired Larry Hart to be his most creative self.”
Andrea Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the 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.
