Melissa Errico SINGS SONDHEIM NOVEMBER 1-3 AT 7:00PM
After multiple sold-out engagements at Feinstein's/54 Below, as well as in London and Washington, DC over the last year, Tony Award-nominated singer, actress, and writer Melissa Errico returns to Broadway's Living Room!
Bringing her gorgeous voice, and a unique and unpredictable intelligence, wit, and mischief to the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim, Melissa will reprise and expand this extraordinary event, subtitled "I'm Back!" Of her Sondheim concert, The New York Times has said "She sings beautifully. Her familiarity with the way the songs work to advance character and story in vivo naturally informs her in vitro style, which is actorly to begin with. An attention to the lyrics and their rush of harsh "wisdoms" was Ms. Errico's keynote. She refreshed cabaret staples, and lightly jazzed others, demonstrating how the meaning that is locked in tiny verbal gestures can be released with bold phrasing."
With classics and curios from Into the Woods, Follies, Sweeney Todd, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, A Little Night Music, and songs from shows she has starred in, this concert is one no Sondheim or Broadway fan should miss! Errico's history with Sondheim began when he selected her to star as Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, and then she star in acclaimed New York productions as Clara in Passion and Leona in Do I Hear A Waltz?
Musical Director: Tedd Firth

In an unforgettable celebration of the score by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, experience "Raise Your Voice," The Life I Never Led," and "Spread the Love Around" like you've never heard them before!
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing, and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless! Featuring a cast with some of NYC's rising stars, this concert is produced and directed by Nicole Lippey and A Work of Heart Productions.
