Here's the previously announced 2008-09 Morgans lineup:
Oct. 29-Nov. 9: Steve Ross: Good Thing Going A Tribute to Stephen Sondheim: "For his Morgan's Cabaret debut, we welcome his latest triumph, a highly personal Stephen Sondheim show that opened recently at the Algonquin."Feb. 11-22, 2009: Eddie Bruce: Bruce on Bennett a Salute to Tony Bennett: "Philadelphia favorite Eddie Bruce performs his tribute to the music of Tony Bennett just in time for Valentine's Day. In this show featuring songs from Bennett's long and varied career, Eddie will perform the hits that have had the most meaning to him. Eddie will include stories and anecdotes that bring the music and the man to life, and will be backed up by the incomparable Tom Adams Trio." Expect "Because of You," "Just in Time" and "Steppin' Out."March 11-22, 2009: Christine Andreas: Two for the Road, A Well Traveled Musical Recollection: "For almost 20 years, Christine Andreas and her husband, composer Martin Silvestri, have effortlessly shifted gears from musical theatre to cabaret to concert halls. Two for the Road is their personal scrapbook of musical souvenirs collected along the way. Silvestri's empathetic arrangements guide Andreas' beautiful and distinctive renditions of the American Songbook. This musical marriage results in a performance that has solicited raves from audiences."April 29 - May 10, 2009: Barbara Brussell: Almost Like Being in Love, The Lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner: "Fellow fans of Lerner are in for some rich listening with this Prince debut. Barbara is a fearless singer compiling fresh, intimate arrangements with warm, sensitive vocals that let these Lerner lyrics shine out in all their glory. She is more than willing to be revealing, fragile, even foolishly and naively romantic. She dives right into the romantic waters. Whether belting or taking a turn at quiet reflection, the singer is commanding." Single tickets are $41 for weekday evenings and Sunday matinees, $50 for Friday evening performances, and $54 for Saturday evenings.
