Tony winner Betty Buckley—who recently released her latest solo recording, Betty Buckley Sings Stephen Sondheim, a compilation featuring 24 tracks from nine of her past releases plus two unique to this album—returns to New York's Café Carlyle starting September 27.
“It's a really beautiful retrospective of when I started singing, doing concert work, and creating these collections of music to the present day,” shares Buckley about her recent all-Sondheim streaming release. Watch the video above for the full interview with the Broadway favorite.
Buckley is offering five in-person performances through October 1, joined by Grammy-nominated pianist Christian Jacob, bassist Anthony J. Marino, and percussionist Jamey Haddad. Attendees can expect an eclectic mix of standards and songs by contemporary songwriters.
“I always love playing at Café Carlyle. It’s a quintessential, intimate New York venue and has a beautiful, rich history of artists who have graced the room that inspire me each time,” says Buckley. ”It’s an exquisite musical space, and I’m really delighted to be back.”
Texas native Betty Buckley, seen in an acclaimed performance as Dolly Gallagher Levi in the national tour of the Tony-winning revival of Hello, Dolly!, won her Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, later earning another nomination for her work in the musical Triumph of Love. She starred in both the London and New York productions of Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier nomination for her take on the ill-fated silent-screen star Norma Desmond. London audiences have also enjoyed Buckley's work in Promises, Promises and Dear World, and her other Broadway credits include Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, and Promises, Promises. A 2012 Theatre Hall of Fame inductee and the 2017 recipient of the Julie Harris Award from The Actors Fund for Artistic Achievement, Buckley's most recent screen credits include Split, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Cleaning Lady, Supergirl, The Film Crew, Preacher, Chicago Med, The Leftovers, Getting On, Pretty Little Liars, and The Happening.
