Lorna Luft Comes To Feinstein's 1/4-9, 2011
FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine, and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, opens its 2011 season with the debut engagement of acclaimed entertainer Lorna Luft from Tuesday, January 4 to Sunday, January 9. In "Songs My Mother Taught Me: The Judy Garland Songbook," Ms. Luft melds one of the world's most familiar songbooks with personal memories of a loving daughter. The show, which Variety called "a rousing, dramatically riveting musical event," was awarded two Los Angeles Theatre Alliance Ovation Awards and the Los Angeles Times called her performance "heart-stopping and thrilling. An incandescent revelation not to be missed." All shows take place in the Feinstein's at Loews Regency Ballroom at the Loews Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
LORNA LUFT - born to legendary entertainer Judy Garland and producer Sid Luft - has had an acclaimed career encompassing virtually every arena of entertainment. A celebrated live performer, stage, film and television actress, best selling author, recording artist and Emmy nominated producer - she continues to triumph in every medium with critics labeling her one of the most vibrant, versatile and exciting artists on stage today. At age 11, she made her television debut singing on her mother's series, "The Judy Garland Show." Since then, Lorna has had starring roles in both television and film. Most recently, Lorna joined Alan Cumming and Margaret Cho as part of the talented voice cast of Logo Network's animated series "Rick & Steve."
Lorna is no stranger to the stage and has enjoyed numerous successes across the globe, including Broadway and the West End.

Lorna reprised her role in White Christmas for the 2007 winter season. Concurrent with her theatrical career, Lorna is a gifted live performer frequently featured as a concert artist at the world's most prestigious venues including The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, The London Palladium, and L'Olympia in Paris.
