Fred Barton to Return to Metropolis Room, 3/11

Fred Barton returns to the Metropolitan Room on Sunday, March 11, at 7:00 PM with his show Fred Barton PRESENTS – AND THINKS YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT! – in which he hosts, sings and plays with his 9-piece Broadway Band, bringing back classic Broadway show music, with some swing on the side. At each monthly performance, Fred features two of his favorite singers, with additional special guests.

For his March edition of his show, Fred will feature Drama-Desk-Award-winning Toni DiBuono ("WONDERFUL TOWN," "THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE," "Forbidden Broadway") and Scott Ailing ("BROADWAY BY THE YEAR 1945," "THE A-TRAIN PLAYS"). Kevin Earley ("DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY," "THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE") will make an encore appearance, along with Pamela Myers (Tony nominee for introducing "Another Hundred People" in COMPANY) and Fred's previous guest singers Elena Bennett, Jesse Luttrell, and Karen Wilder.

"Fred Barton PRESENTS – AND THINKS YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!" will be presented monthly throughout 2012, with a CD release in August.

The show's debut in September was a sell-out smash, with a line down the street, walkups turned away and a jam-packed room. The January edition, featuring Elena Bennett and Damon Kirsche, likewise sold out, as did the February performance with Anita Gillette, Karen Murphy, and Kevin Earley.

Fred Barton is a performer, arranger, songwriter, conductor, and TV composer. His previous cabaret revues include Forbidden Broadway (Drama Desk, Tony Award, 27-year run), Miss Gulch Returns! (Bistro Award), and Whoop-Dee-Doo! (Drama Desk Award). He's conducted numerous Broadway shows, composed numerous TV shows, and his symphonic orchestrations are played almost weekly by orchestras around the country. His symphonic pops arrangements were played in three different concerts at Carnegie Hall in 2011.
