BWW TV Exclusive: Charles Busch is THE LADY AT THE MIC; Watch American Songbook Concert Highlights!
A two-time MAC Award winner, Tony nominee, and recipient of a Drama Desk Lifetime Achievement Award, Charles Busch just visited the exquisite Appel Room for an intimate evening of song and stories. The actor, playwright (Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife), novelist, screenwriter, director, and drag legend has happily added "vaudevillian" to the list over the past years.
This brand new show created for Lincoln Center's American Songbook series, titled "The Lady at the Mic," had Busch, along with his invaluable longtime musical director Tom Judson, paying tribute through song and personal reminiscence to five extraordinary and much missed women: Elaine Stritch, Polly Bergen, Mary Cleere Haran, Julie Wilson, and Joan Rivers. Check out highlights below!
Returning for its 17th season, Lincoln Center's acclaimed series American Songbook continues to broaden its scope in celebrating the best in American singing and songwriting as interpreted by top performers and rising stars, with events at three Lincoln Center venues.
