Wendy Scherl, a New York and Arizona-based singer, returns with "The Sweetness and the Sorrow: Songs of Marvin Hamlisch" to The Green Room 42 stage next month. Conceived with her two main collaborators, director Barry Kleinbort and musical director, Christopher Denny, Ms. Scherl takes a vocal joyride through the catalogue of Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch, offering new takes on standards and rarities culled from his numerous Broadway shows, film scores, and early pop songs.

Wendy's far-reaching program includes classics like "The Way We Were" and "What I Did for Love" alongside little-known gems like "Sweet Alibis" and "Two Boys" (which Hamlisch wrote with the late Peter Allen.) As Roy Sander of Bistro Awards wrote, "With her fluent musical vocabulary and sharp interpretive skill, Wendy Scherl illuminates and invigorates every song she sings." This is an evening not to be missed.

Her most recent shows, New Scherl in Town (2017) and Town and Country (2019) earned her Broadway World and Mac award nominations for Best Vocalist.
