Andrea Marcovicci Debuts 'Rodgers & Hart' at the Oak Room

Andrea Marcovicci the celebrated singer and actress will perform her new show "Andrea Marcovicci Sings Rodgers & Hart," for the first time in New York at the Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel (59 West 44th Street) from November 13, 2007 to January 12, 2008. The show features music director Shelly Markham on piano and Jered Egan on bass. Please call 212-419-9331 for reservations.

Her new CD of the same name will be released by her label Andreasong on November 13. The disc will be available at www.marcovicci.com and post-performance at the Oak Room.

This summer's world premiere of "Andrea Marcovicci Sings Rodgers & Hart" celebrates the music of one of the American Songbook's most prolific and accomplished songwriting teams, and is brimming with hits and undiscovered gems.

Marcovicci brings her uncanny gift of interpretation to the seminal artistry of Lorenz Hart, whose brilliant lyrics rank with those of Noël Coward and Cole Porter for shimmering wit and sophistication, poignancy and heartfelt sentiment. Andrea has unearthed some rare treasures from the Rodgers & Hart songbook: "A Little Birdie Told Me So" from Peggy Ann and "What's The Use?" from Lido Lady (1926).

In quintessential Marcovicci fashion, she interweaves tender stories and humorous anecdotes about the team with selections from the golden age of American popular music. From the giddy excitement of Rodgers & Hart's early collaborations to Hart's heartbreaking untimely death, Andrea traces the singularly American story of a duo that gave us so many beloved songs.
