Stritch Stays At Home at the Carlyle for an Added Week in January

Elaine Stritch's At Home at the Carlyle has added on an additional week of performances to its smash run, with the show now set to re-open on Tuesday, January 3rd; it will run through Saturday, February 4th, 2006.  The show was recently announced as reopening on January 10th, but more shows were added due to popular demand.

The theatre legend is currently performing at the Carlyle Hotel's (Madison Avenue and 76th Street) cabaret space through October 30th (an extra 8:45 performance on that night was added to the sold-out run).

The show's title, At Home at the Carlyle, refers to the fact that Stritch is a longtime resident of the famed hotel. It also features the work of a number of accomplished Broadway professionals. Stritch is backed by a six-piece band (Rob Bowman on piano, Lou Bruno on bass, Dave Gale on trumpet, Jack Gale on trombone, Paul Pizzuti on drums and Les Scott on reeds) led by her musical director Bowman, Jonathan Tunick (the arranger of Company and other Sondheim shows) handled the arrangements and Tony Award-winner Jules Fisher was responsible for the lighting design. The cabaret features Stritch, with her trademark deadpan wit, performing new material. As with her previous show At Liberty, she regales the audience with anecdotes and stories about a career that has spanned over 6 decades.

Included in the show's song list are "Yes, I Can," "Perfectly Marvelous," "I Think I Like You," "I Wanna Get Married," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Why Him," "I Went to a Marvelous Party," "He Was Too Good to Me," "That's Him," "I've Been Alone Too Long," "Fifty Percent," "Dear World," "You're the Pop (You're the Top)," "Could I Leave You?," "Heart" and "It Amazes Me."

Stritch received a 2002 Drama Desk Award for her acclaimed one-woman Broadway show Elaine Stritch at Liberty; the show also garnered a Tony for Best Special Theatrical Event. She has received Tony Award nominations for her performances in A Delicate Balance, Bus Stop, Sail Away and Company, in which she originated the role of the sardonic Joanne. Other Broadway credits include Call Me Madam (as the standby for Ethel Merman), Pal Joey, On Your Toes, Goldilocks, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Love Letters and Show Boat; she also appeared in the legendary Lincoln Center concert version of Follies. On film and TV, she has been seen in Providence, Cocoon: The Return, September, An Unexpected Wife, Small Time Crooks, Autumn in New York, Monster-in-Law, "3rd Rock from the Sun," and "Law and Order," for which she received an Emmy Award nomination.
