Avenue Q's Jennifer Barnhart Will Return To The Laurie Beechman Theatre
Avenue Q and Sesame Street's Jennifer Barnhart returns to The Laurie Beechman Theatre on Sunday March 8th at 7pm, with a final encore performance of her critically acclaimed debut cabaret show. "It's About Time"
After years of playing well with others - whether singing backup for friends' shows, or crooning alongside a cast of puppet characters - Jennifer Barnhart finally steps into the spotlight in her first solo cabaret. Directed by Alan Muraoka the show is an evening of stories, silliness and song as Jennifer shares the journey that led her to two of the most famous streets in the world: Broadway and Sesame Street.
Jennifer will be accompanied by music director Gary Adler, bassist Jim Donica, and percussionist Scott Neumann. There will be special appearances by some other Avenue Q residents as well, including fellow original cast member Rick Lyon.
In his review of the show BroadwayWorld Cabaret Editor Stephen Mosher said "This debut show is one of the slickest, best-prepared, most polished, well-constructed debuts a person could hope to find in a nightclub theater, and Ms. Barnhart appears to be born to do this."
