Feinstein's/54 Below Presents INTRODUCING VICTORIA COOK on Today
"Victoria Cook (Into the Woods) returns to 54 Below, this time in her solo show debut, to give a personal and soulful rendition of the American songbook. Featuring songs from shows like Funny Girl and artists ranging from Joni Mitchell to Minnie Ripperton, expect an evening fueled by the sounds of the seventies that Victoria brings to life with the help of 'The Glatthorns', a seven piece brass band.
Backed by Jessica Hendy (Cats, Aida), Chris Blem (Disney on Classic), and Blaine Krauss (The Lion King, Radio City Music Hall). This is a night not to be missed!"
