The Bistro Award-winning singer Grace Cosgrove premieres "Spend an Evening with Grace" in a five-show prime-time engagement at the Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street, beginning Sunday, April 29. Directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye, "Spend an Evening with Grace" opens up a wide panorama of American classics -- from Johnny Mercer to Laura Nyro, and from Burt Bacharach back to Cole Porter. As she ranges through a number of distinct stylistic territories, Cosgrove, who is also an Edward R. Murrow and Emmy Award-winning television editor, weaves together these widely dispersed songs into a storybook of Americana.

"Spend an Evening with Grace" runs a total of five times from April 29 to June 8. Performances -- all at 7pm – are Sunday April 29, Monday April 30, Wednesday May 2, Friday May 4 and Friday June 8. The original arrangements are by Maye and pianist Don Rebic who leads a three-piece combo that includes Jason DiMatteo on bass and Danny Mallon on percussion and drums.

A busy session and back-up singer in the '80s, Cosgrove performed live shows mixing old and new American Songbook standards and won a Back Stage Bistro Award. In the intervening years she became an editor and producer of news programs, documentaries, television specials and music videos.

After a break from performing to raise a son, Cosgrove created and produced "Grace Notes," a long-running variety series in which she shared the stage with numerous guests. Cosgrove is currently working on a Laura Nyro show and CD, "Time and in Love," that she will release on her label Chantooz later this year.

Cosgrove's music charge is $20. For reservations call 212/206-0440. For more information or to order online visit www.metropolitanroom.com.
