BWW TV: Betty Buckley in 'Betty's Back' Webisode 1

Betty Buckley's "Broadway By Request" is currently playing at Feinstein's at Loew's Regency and runs through March 7th.

These shows are driven by 'request forms' that will be handed to patrons when they arrive and check in with the maitre'd to be shown to their tables. The forms ask your name, where you're from and what song you would like to request of Ms. Buckley and any questions that you might have for the diva. It sounds spirited and informal and fun and Buckley has been quoted as saying that "I've been rehearsing everything I know - keep your fingers crossed!"

Seth Rudetsky is featured in the show and will be doing some of his famous "deconstructions," all pointed at the Broadway legend and the show was devised and directed by Richard Jay-Alexander, with Buckley and Rudetsky.

Betty Buckley won a Tony Award for her performance as "Grizabella" in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, a Tony Award nomination for her performance as "Hesione" in Triumph of Love, and an Olivier nomination for her interpretation of "Norma Desmond" in Sunset Boulevard. Her latest CD, Quintessence, is a tribute to Buckley's eighteen year working relationship with jazz great Kenny Werner. This album is the pair's ninth album together and is a perfect bookend to the recently released Betty Buckley 1967.

Ms. Buckley added to her critically acclaimed work the role of "Mama Rose" in the great American musical Gypsy for the renowned Papermill Playhouse. Her other Broadway credits include Lloyd Webber's Song and Dance and the role of "Margaret White" in the cult musical Carrie, for which she was nominated as Best Actress in a Musical by the Outer Critics Circle. She made her Broadway debut creating the role of "Martha Jefferson" in the musical 1776, then performed the roles of "Catherine" in Bob Fosse's Pippin and "Edwin Drood" in the New York Shakespeare Festival's The Mystery of Edwin Drood. In London she starred as "Fran Kubelik" in Promises, Promises, for which she received a nomination from The Evening Standard for Best Actress in a Musical.

BroadwayWorld is proud to present "Betty's Back," a video series following Betty Buckley on stage and off as she entertains theatre lovers at Feinstein's at Loew's Regency.
