An Evening at the Carlyle Releases Cast Recording

McGuirk, Rachelle Rak, Jason Rowland, Maggie Graham and Jamison Stern.

Algonquin Theater Productions presented An Evening at the Carlyle, which transports audiences to the to the "mecca northeast of Tribeca," the Upper East Side's Bemelmans Bar in the Hotel Carlyle.
