Randy Graff to Bring MADE IN BROOKLYN to 54 Below, 3/5
54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents RANDY GRAFF: MADE IN BROOKLYN on Wednesday, March 5 at 9:30 p.m. What do George Gershwin, Carole King, Betty Comden, Harry Nilsson, Barry Manilow, and Barbra Whatsername have in common? They were all born in BROOKLYN!
And so was Tony Award-winner Randy Graff ("City of Angels"), who will sing the music of artists from her hometown, the fourth largest city in America--backed up by a slammin' trio of musicians, including her Musical Director/Arranger/Husband Tim Weil on the piano, Warren Odze on drums and Dick Sarpola on bass.
MADE IN BROOKLYN is the personal and musical story of Randy herself - one more great performer from the famed borough.
Though Randy made her name on Broadway, way down deep she's still that girl from the streets of Canarsie. And MADE IN BROOKLYN is a celebration through story and song of some of the great music that came from the streets of Brooklyn, and the influence these writers and performers had on her growing up and growing into a multi-award winning actress/singer.
