Lorna Luft to ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE at Birdland, 6/9
On Monday, June 9, Lorna Luft will bring "Accentuate the Positive" to Birdland with performances at 7:00PM and 10:30PM.
The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce the return of Lorna Luft to the stage. In October 2013, Lorna hosted a record breaking two-night benefit concert for the Actors Fund, "Lorna's Pink Party," which raised over $150,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and cancer research charities. Lorna was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer in Dec 2012. After treatment she is cancer-free and ecstatic to be bringing "Accentuate the Positive" to Birdland!
"Accentuate the Positive" will include many beloved standards, and in a special section, will pay tribute to Johnny Mercer, who has been called "America's poet," and was a close family friend. Mercer, who won 4 Academy Awards, also wrote the lyrics to Judy Garland's television theme song. The song became "Lorna," which Judy Garland sang to her daughter on her television show.
