Nancy Anderson to Perform Songs from New CD, August 14

Two-time Drama Desk-nominee Nancy Anderson will celebrate the release of her debut solo CD at Birdland on Aug. 14th at 7 PM.

"In 2003 acclaimed Broadway veteran Nancy Anderson took the New York club world by storm with her debut show.  The one night only engagement had the sold out audience on their feet and the critics honoring her with the Backstage Bistro Award.  Three years later Nancy is returning for another one night only show celebrating the release of her debut CD titled 'Ten Cents a Dance,'" press notes state.  For the concert, she will be joined by musical director Ross Patterson and his Little Big Band.

"Kittenish, brassy, innocent, romantic, intelligent, funny…'Ten Cents a Dance' is a full-bodied musical experience featuring favorites and lost treasures from one of music's most influential and cherished times; the 20's and 30's."  Produced by Bill Daugherty and with Patterson and Danny Whitby as musical directors, the CD will feature, among other songs, "The Trouble with Me is You," "My Romance," "But Not for Me", and the title track "Ten Cents a Dance."

Anderson is a two-time Drama Desk-nominee for her work as the title character in the Off-Broadway productions of Fanny Hill and as all of the women in Jolson & Co. In 2002, she was honored with an Olivier Award nomination and a Helen Hayes Award nomination for her work as Bianca/Lois in Kiss Me, Kate, also seen on PBS and available on DVD.  She has also appeared on Broadway as Helen in Wonderful Town and Mona in A Class Act.

Birdland is located located at 315 W. 44th Street (between 8th and 9th Ave) in Manhattan.  There is a $30 music charge plus a $10 food/drink minimum.  Reservations can be made at 212-581-3080.
