Andreas Performs Solo Show at Birdland, June 6

Christine Andreas will perform her cabaret show, Love is Good, at Birdland on Monday, June 6th at 7 PM as part of the acclaimed New Season series, which is presented by Jim Caruso in association with theatremania.com.

Andreas won a Theatre World Award when she starred opposite Sir Ian Richardson in the 20th anniversary revival of My Fair Lady.  She received two Tony nominations for her performances as Laurey in the 1979 revival of Oklahoma! and as Frankie Frayne in the 1983 revival of Rodgers and Hart's On Your Toes.   She also created the role of Marguerite in Frank Wildhorn's
The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Andreas' cabaret runs at The Cafe Carlyle and The Oak Room at the Algonquin Hotel led to her West End debut starring in the Martin Silvestri musical, The Fields of Ambrosia, at the Aldwych Theatre in London.  This was followed by concerts in London, Paris, Rome and The White House, culminating in the release of her CD Love is Good.  Andreas and Silvestri's second CD collaboration, Here's To The Ladies, was recorded in London with a 45 piece orchestra, and was selected by USA Today as one of the top 10 CDs of 2002.  The following year, USA Today once again honored Andreas by choosing her latest recording, The Carlyle Set, a sophisticated new CD of contemporary standards recorded with a quartet of New Yorks' most oustanding musicians, as one of the top ten CD's of 2003.   She recently returned from six sold-out performances in the Jazz Series at Kennedy Center.  The show at Birdland will include standards such as "Fly Me To The Moon," "They Say It's Wonderful," The Music That Makes Me Dance," "Storybook" from Scarlet Pimpernel and several original tunes.

Birdland has been a world-class music room on the Manhattan nightclub scene since 1949.  Jazz superstars Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Dinah Washington, and more recently Ann Hampton Callaway, Diana Krall, John Pizzarelli and Tito Puente have all performed on the Birdland stage.  The room offers top-flight music in a world class setting, good sight lines and acoustics, and a menu featuring award-winning Southern cuisine, available until 1am.  Most recently, it's become the home of Cast Party, the weekly Monday late night showbiz gathering featuring impromptu performances by the Broadway, jazz and nightclub crème de la crème.

Birdland is located at
315 West 44 Street.

There is a $30 cover charge to Love is Good, as well as a $10 food/drink minimum.  To reserve tickets, call
