FEBRUARY HOUSE's Julian Fleisher Performs Joe's Pub Solo Show Tonight, 6/11

Star of the The Public Theater's FEBRUARY HOUSE – actor Julian Fleisher has been tapped by Joe's Pub for a solo performance tonight, June 11.

February House is based on actual events at a dilapidated house in Brooklyn Heights that became, in the early 1940's, a bohemian commune of sorts for intellectual misfits that included poet W.H. Auden, novelist Carson McCullers, and composer Benjamin Britten.

Before the art of song was divided into narrow stylistic slices, before there was Jazz or Pop or Rock, there was Nightclub Singing. Like Sammy Davis, Jr, Ethel Water and Mel Tormé before him, Julian Fleisher mixes masterful interpretations of a wide range of popular songs with kick-ass showmanship and a generously endowed band.

Son of world-renowned concert pianist Leon Fleisher, Julian was first heard as a boy soprano, a student of the classical repertoire at the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of music in his hometown of Baltimore. After a four year stint as an undergraduate at Yale-where he sang in concerts, and on stage in roles ranging from The Threepenny Opera's Mack the Knife to Guys and Doll's Sky Masterson, Julian took on New York, the inevitable next step in any young entertainer′s journey. Now, he′s enjoying a reputation as one of that city′s most exciting young nightclub stars. His collaborations with a growing roster of celebrities-turned-singers now has him on a new trajectory: Host Extraordinaire. Molly Ringwald, Isaac Mizrahi, Ana Gasteyer, Martha Plimpton, Lauren Graham, Jennifer Holliday, Keith Carradine, and Kiki & Herb.
