JASON GRAAE begins final week of "COUP DE GRAAE!" at Helen's

Jason Graae, who just received a rave review from Stephen Holden in the New York Times, begins his final week tonight at The Hideaway Room at Helen's, 169 Eighth Avenue (between 18-19th Streets). The two week engagement, which began December 6th, continues through December 18th playing Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 PM. The evening of music and comedy called "COUP DE GRAAE!" also earned raves at The Plush Room in San Francisco and at The Cinegrill in LA. The show features Alex Rybeck as Musical Director plus Surprise Guests.

COUP DE GRAAE! includes songs and stories about Rodgers & Hart, Jerry Herman and the Bergmans, plus his steadfast refusal to sing any Sondheim. He also salutes his lucrative voice over career as the heart and soul of Western Union Moneygrams. From his opening number, brazenly glad-handing the audience to his Applause-filled closing, Jason is the compleat entertainer, giddy, irreverent, mischievous and moving, often at the same time. Mr. Holden said: "This Broadway baby knows the score. A biting wit and a real singing voice." The LA Times described the evening as 'an eclectic banquet of standards, show tunes, pop songs, incisive wit, easygoing charm and a humorous dessert featuring his tale as the voice of 'Lucky the Leprechaun'."

Best-known to theatre audiences for his Broadway appearances in A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGING, FALSETTOS, STARDUST, SNOOPY and DO BLACK PATENT LEATHER SHOES REALLY REFLECT UP? and as one of the original Plaids in FOREVER PLAID, Jason received a Drama Desk nomination for HELLO MUDDAH, HELLO FADDUH. In addition to being heard on 35 original cast albums and studio CDs, Jason has recorded two solo CDs: YOU'RE NEVER FULLY DRESSED WITHOUT A SMILE and Jason Graae LIVE AT THE CINEGRILL.

For reservations to COUP DE GRAAE! call Helen's at (212) 206-0609. There is a $25 cover and a two drink minimum.
