Bay Area Cabaret Presents Christine Andreas BE-MUSED
Bay Area Cabaret presents two-time Tony Award-nominee Christine Andreas in Venetian Room debut performing her dazzling one-woman show, be-Mused. In a show that left the New York Times "thunderstruck," Christine takes songs that are already incendiary and makes them shine that much brighter. She celebrates some of the greatest collaborations spanning the last century: Arlen & Garland, Jobim & Gilberto, Van Heusen & Sinatra, the Bergmans & Streisand, Bacharach/David & Dionne Warwick, Monnot & Piaf and more.Ms. Andreas first captured Broadway theatre-goers' hearts when she starred as Eliza Doolittle, in the 20th anniversary production of My Fair Lady, receiving a Theatre World Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She then starred in the revival of Oklahoma! working with Billy Hammerstein and the legendary Agnes deMille, receiving a Tony nomination for Best Actress in a Musical; followed by On Your Toes (directed George Abbott), and garnering her second Tony nomination.
Other Broadway shows include Words and Music (with Sammy Cahn), Legs Diamond (with Peter Allen), The Scarlet Pimpernel (with Terrence Mann), and the Tony and Olivier Award winning production of La Cage Aux Folles, with Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge. San Francisco audiences will remember Christine's starring role as Margaret Johnson in the much acclaimed National tour of The Light In The Piazza (with David Burnham), for which she received a Helen Hayes Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She has released four critically-acclaimed solo albums and has appeared in concerts around the world-from Carnegie Hall, to London, Paris, Rome, and the White House.Sunday, April 2 at 5 PM.
