Feinstein's at Loews Regency is closing their Fall 2011 season with the return engagement of the club's founder Michael Feinstein and Tony Award winning Broadway legend Barbara Cook from through December 30. To celebrate Barbara Cook's 2011 Kennedy Center Honor, the club is rolling back prices to when the club opened in 1999 for the month of December: $60 cover and no minimum. Their show will feature gems from the great American songbook by Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington and Rodgers & Hart, in addition to Broadway hits and holiday classics. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you photo coverage of the special show!
Michael Feinstein, the multi-platinum-selling, five-time Grammy-nominated entertainer is considered one of the premier interpreters of American standards. His 200-plus shows a year have included performances at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl as well as the White House and Buckingham Palace. He serves on the Library of Congress' National Recording Preservation Board, which ensures the survival, conservation and increased public availability of America's sound recording heritage.
Feinstein's earned his fifth Grammy Award nomination in 2009 for The Sinatra Project, his Concord Records CD celebrating the music of "Ol' Blue Eyes." A new PBS concert special, The Sinatra Legacy, is currently airing across the country; The Sinatra Project, Volume II: The Good Life, its companion CD, was released on October 25. Last year's PBS series Michael Feinstein's American Songbook - in which he uncovers treasures of classic American music - is now available on DVD, with an additional disc of bonus features. The series, the recipient of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Television Broadcast Award, will return with six primetime episodes starting in January 2012.
Recently, he released the CDs The Power Of Two - collaborating with "Glee" and "30 Rock" star Cheyenne Jackson - and Cheek To Cheek, recorded with Broadway legend Barbara Cook. On his recent recording We Dreamed These Days; Feinstein co-wrote the title song with Dr. Maya Angelou.
Barbara Cook, considered "Broadway's favorite ingénue," during the heyday of the Broadway musical launched a second career as a concert and recording artist, soaring from one professional peak to another. She has been delighting audiences around the world for more than 50 years and just last week received a 2011 Kennedy Center Honor, along with Meryl Streep, Neil Diamond, Yo-Yo Ma and Sonny Rollins.
A leading star during the Broadway musical's "golden age" of the 50's and 60's, her many Broadway credits include the creation of three classic roles in the American musical theatre: Cunegonde in Leonard Bernstein's Candide, Marian the Librarian in Meredith Willson's The Music Man (Tony Award) and Amalia in Bock and Harnick's She Loves Me (Drama Desk Award). Last year she returned to Broadway for the first time in 23 years and received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Sondheim On Sondheim. Her latest CD is You Make Me Feel So Young, recorded earlier this year live at Feinstein's at Loews Regency.
