Champlin will reprise her acclaimed Finishing the Hat solo show, which is described as "a hilarious and inspired pairing of stories and songs from Donna Lynne's professional and personal adventures (such as 'Stalking Brian D'Arcy James' and 'The Worst Audition Ever') that the audience picks randomly from a hat." Tom Kitt will be featured on piano; show time is 7 PM. Donna Lynne Champlin has appeared on Broadway in Sweeney Todd, Hollywood Arms, By Jeeves and James Joyce's The Dead. Her other New York theatrical credits include The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (Obie Award), My Life With Albertine, Reunion, Encores! Bloomer Girl, First Lady Suite, The Audience and Meet John Doe. Champlin recently filmed "The Audition" and "My Father's Will."
