The Broadway at Birdland concert series has announced that Broadway performers Jenny Powers and Matt Cavenaugh will be performing "Real Good Thing," in concert at the historic music room on Monday, February 13 at 7pm
Celebrating their new album, "Gonna Make You Love Me," and showcasing a dynamic mix of traditional standards, contemporary pop and classic musical theatre, Broadway star couple Jenny Powers (Grease) and Matt Cavenaugh (West Side Story) sing a fresh refrain of that oft-repeated, yet slightly mysterious and nearly implausible cosmic chorus that is love and marriage.
