Amanda Green Plays Feinstein's , 11/1

Songwriter/performer Amanda Green, best known as a Larson Award winner and lyricist for the Broadway musical High Fidelity, will make a special concert appearance at Feinstein's at Loews Regency on November 1st. Green will be joined by Broadway veterans Jenn Coella, Ann Harada, Norm Lewis, and more.

Green began writing songs and performing in Manhattan cabarets like Joe's Pub. In the mid-1990s, enamored with Lyle Lovett's writing, she moved to Nashville and dabbled in country music. Heading to Los Angeles, Green wrote lyrics for two musicals, Once Upon a Primetime and Up the Week Without a Paddle, which earned her a nomination from the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle.

Back in New York, Green's original revue, Put a Little Love in Your Mouth!, co-starring Mario Cantone and Billy Strich, enjoyed a sold-out run at off-Broadway's Second Stage Theater. A recording of a live performance has been released on compact disc. She also wrote the lyrics for and co-starred with Nancy Opel in For the Love of Tiffany: A Wifetime Original Musical, which enjoyed a sold-out run at The Wings Theater as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Green enrolled in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop, where she met Tom Kitt, who suggested the two collaborate on a musical stage adaptation of the cult film High Fidelity. In a move reminiscent of the days when Broadway musicals routinely tested the waters out-of-town first, the show had a one-month run at Boston's Colonial Theatre before heading to New York City. After eighteen previews, the production opened on December 7, 2006 at the Imperial Theatre where, hampered by poor reviews, it closed after only fourteen performances.

At present, Green and Kitt are writing original songs for a movie musical version of Debbie Does Dallas. She is the recipient of a 2004 Jonathan Larson Award and grant for excellence in songwriting.

Dinner will be served for the one-night-only event beginning at 8:30pm. Reservations are necessary and can be made through the box office at 212-339-4095 or through feinsteinsattheregency.com.
