Rena Strober's 'Spaghetti & Matzo Balls' - Extended by Popular Demand

Rena Strober, a name made infamous by the New York Post for being "The Songbird from Rao's" during the unfortunate shooting last December at the famed eatery, has returned to the stage after a self-induced hiatus. Originally scheduled for three nights only, Ms. Strober has extended her run at Don't Tell Mama by popular demand adding three additional shows.

Strober's voice has carried her from the barricades of Les Miserables on Broadway, to duets with Italian virtuoso Michael Amante at Lincoln Center, to 114th St. and Pleasant Avenue at one of the ten tables at Rao's. Rena is finally telling the tale of how her Jewish roots developed into Italian vines — and showing the voice that made it all happen.

Incorporating the works of Irving Berlin, Billy Joel, Lerner & Lowe, Tom Waits and her grandma Sunny's Yiddish songbook, "Spaghetti and Matzo Balls" is an evening of narrative cabaret as Strober recounts her exposure to the world of Italian ways and how her Jewish roots eventually led her back home. Directed by Dean Strober with musical direction by William Hindin. Don't Tell Mama is located at 343 W 46th Street. Tickets are $12 or $6 for members of Actors' Equity. There is a 2 drink minimum. Reservations can be made by calling 212-757-0788.

Rena made her Broadway debut 3 years ago in Les Miserables and went on to perform leading roles on stage at Playwrights Horizons, The Goodspeed Opera House, Portland Center Stage, Sacramento Music Circus, and most recently as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival here in New York. She has also been seen onstage at Lincoln Center, Town Hall and Westbury Music Faire.
