Back in the heyday of nightclubs in New York, Roslyn Kind played 'em all. Signed to RCA Records at the time, she played The Persian Room, The Playboy Club, The Supper Club, The Grand Finale, etc. The show features music direction by Alex Rybeck, and direction by Richard Jay-Alexander.
54 Below's Phil Geoffrey Bond snagged the singer and convinced her that the New York hot spot was the perfect place for her return. He could be found backstage yesterday afternoon, as flowers arrived from everywhere, including her sis, Barbra and Jim Brolin, and Liza Minnelli.
Kind is a dynamic, multi-talented entertainer who has forged a successful career in all facets of entertainment from critically acclaimed recordings to sold-out performances on Broadway and in top concert venues and nightclubs the world over. Ms. Kind recently performed with her sister, Barbra Streisand, during an 8 city US/Canadian tour and a 6 city International tour, which brought her to acclaimed venues including the Hollywood Bowl, The 02 Arena in London and Rogers Arena in Vancouver. In addition to performing historic duets with her sister, Ms. Kind shared the stage with her nephew Jason Gould and famed trumpeter Chris Botti, as well as IL VOLO.
