Krakowski, McGovern, Eder and More Join Daly and Buckley at Feinstein's in 2010
Broadway stars Jane Krakowski, Maureen McGovern, and Linda Eder will join previously announced Tyne Daly and Betty Buckley at Feinstein's at Regency in 2010. Krakowski will appear from May 4th through 15th, with Eder performing April 6th through 17th. McGovern will present her cabaret show A Long and Winding Road for two performances on February 8th.
Tyne Daly will return to the club to open the official season from January 19 to 30 with her new show "The Second Time Around." Following the triumphant run last year of her show "Broadway By Request," Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will return to the club with a new program of Broadway songs she's always wanted to sing from February 2 to 27. She will be joined by longtime Music Director Kenny Werner and John McDaniel will serve as Music Consultant. Acclaimed singer Marilyn Maye will make her Feinstein's debut with a new show created exclusively for the club from March 2 to 13.
In addition, the club has announced a new price structure. All headliner shows for the spring season will have a select amount of seats - based on availability - with a $40 cover charge and no food/beverage minimum. In addition, for the first three months of the season, all 10:30 PM late shows will have $40 cover charge, with $60 premium seats available. All shows will take place at the Loews Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
Emmy nominee and Tony Award winner Jane Krakowski stars as Jenna Maroney, the star of "The Girlie Show," in NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning "30 Rock." Krakowski is an accomplished actress, dancer and singer with numerous awards and credits to her name in film, theatre and television. She has appeared on Broadway in Nine, Funny Girl, Once Upon a Mattress, Tartuffe, Company, Face Value, Grand Hotel, and Starlight Express. She recently debuted her cabaret show to sold out audiences at the Kennedy Center in DC and Feinstein's in NYC. In 2009, the New Jersey born actress was honored with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Jenna Maroney.
Often compared to Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland, Linda Eder first captured public attention with her unprecedented 12- week winning streak on the TV show Star Search. The success expanded her fan base nationally and led to a leading role as Lucy Harris in the 1990 Broadway- bound musical Jekyll & Hyde. The mainstay of Eder's career, however, remains the concert stage.
Over the years, passionate fans across the country have packed concert venues from The Greek Theater in Los Angeles to New York's Radio City Music Hall, The Gershwin Theater, The Palace Theater and four sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall. With soaring high notes and swelling crescendos, she reigns supreme with a versatile repertoire that covers pop standards, light swing, adult contemporary balladry, jazz and country.
Maureen McGovern's almost 40-year career includes Grammy Award nominations for "Best New Artist" and "Best Traditional Pop Vocal," a Grammy Award for "Best Musical Recording for Children" for her participation in "Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mister Rogers," and the Academy Award-winning Gold Records "The Morning After" (Billboard #1) and "We May Never Love Like This Again." Her PS Classics release A Long and Winding Road was praised by The New York Times as "a captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early ‘70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none." Other critically acclaimed musical tributes include her Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Marilyn and Alan Bergman CDs and more.
On Broadway, Ms. McGovern appeared in Little Women, The Musical, creating the role of Marmee, for which she was nominated for a 2005 Drama Desk Award, The Pirates of Penzance, Nine, 3 Penny Opera, and the recent national tours of Little Women, The Musical and The King and I. Off Broadway, she appeared in Brownstone, originating the role of Mary. Regionally, she has performed in Maureen McGovern: A Long and Winding Road (world premiere at Arena Stage, presented in cooperation with the Huntington), Elegies, Dear World, Letters From 'Nam (originating the role of Eleanor Bridges, at the North Shore Music Theatre), The Lion in Winter, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Of Thee I Sing, Let 'Em Eat Cake, The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Guys & Dolls, I Do, I Do, and The Bengal Tiger's Ball (composed the music, co-created, and starred). She also appeared in The Towering Inferno and as the guitar-strumming nun in the film Airplane!, and lent her voIce To DreamWorks' animated feature Joseph: King of Dreams.
