FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the first joint engagement of the club's founder Michael Feinstein and critically-acclaimed Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson. Originally announced from June 2 - 12, the club has announced six additional shows on June 25, 26 and 27.
Their new duet show "THE POWER OF TWO" features pop songs, classic standards and songs from Broadway shows like The Pajama Game, City Of Angels and Finian's Rainbow. The two stars, who sold out individual appearances at the club earlier this season, are collaborating onstage for the first time. All shows take place at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street). BroadwayWorld.com's cameras were there as the two gents made their "duo debut"!
Michael Feinstein, one of the premiere interpreters of American popular song, has been a household name since the success of his 1988 one-man Broadway show, Isn't It Romantic. He enjoys an active performance calendar, including major concert halls, symphony orchestras, intimate jazz clubs and college campuses. More than a mere performer, he is nationally recognized for his commitment to the American popular song, both celebrating its art and preserving its legacy for the next generation.
His latest CD, The Sinatra Project - a collection of the great romantic songs performed by "Ol' Blue Eyes" - garnered him a fifth Grammy Award nomination. He served as host and consultant on the new PBS documentary film "Soundies: A Musical History" and has written the score for a new stage musical The Gold Room, opening soon in London's West End. His previous CD from Concord Records is Hopeless Romantics, a songbook of Harry Warren classics recorded with legendary jazz pianist George Shearing. In 2004, Michael completed a national tour with songwriting icon Jimmy Webb based on their CD, Only One Life - The Songs of Jimmy Webb. The disc was named one of "10 Best CDs of the Year" by USA Today. Recently he hosted and produced The Great American Songbook, a PBS Special and DVD set from Warner Brothers that traces the history of popular music in our country and debuted at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
Cheyenne Jackson is one of Broadways brightest stars. Cheyenne has starred in Xanadu (Drama League, Drama Desk nominations), the City Center Encore presentations of Damn Yankees and the recent Finnian's Rainbow, All Shook Up (Theater World Award, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle nomination) the premiere cast of Altar Boyz, Aida, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Cartells, On the 20th Century, and The 24 Hour Plays.
