Photo Coverage: Roslyn Kind Previews IT'S BEEN A WHILE at 54 Below
There's strong buzz for Roslyn Kind's debut performance It's Been A While. The performance takes place this Sunday night, April 6th, at 7pm at 54 Below. She is also playing the famed venue on April 20th at 9:30 pm and she is near sell-out. BroadwayWorld was there for the preview performance- check below for pictures from the evening!
Back when Roz began her career, she was signed to RCA Records and put out two albums that were very much a product of their time. They were titled, "Give Me You" and "This Is Roslyn Kind." The song selections were also very indicative of the periods in which they were recorded. It was an attempt to make her hip and vital to the times, rather than rely on music that has proven strong through the ages.
Kind plans on facing this head-on, with some selections in the evening's programs, harkening back to the heyday of night clubs when she played places like The Persian Room, The Playboy Club, The Supper Club, The Grand Finale, etc. At 54 Below, she is led by the incredibly talented musical director, Alex Rybeck, and crackerjack director, Richard Jay-Alexander, who has helped her assemble the evening.
