Linda Purl Presents Midnight Caravan: Celebrating the Great Ladies of the Glamour Nightclub Era at The Abbey on March 13
As a special presentation of The Abbey's Monday Night Cabaret Series, stage and on-screen star Linda Purl presents her solo concert Midnight Caravan: Celebrating the Great Ladies of the Glamorous Nightclub Era on March 13 at 8 p.m.
Straight from London's Crazy Coqs Cabaret, New York's Feinstein's and Tokyo's Swing Hall, Midnight Caravan salutes the great women singing stars of the 1940s and '50s -from Ella Fitzgerald to Judy Garland to Rosemary Clooney - as they reigned over the swanky, sexy supper clubs of the era. From sultry ballads to hot Latin jazz arrangements of Broadway tunes, the show features classic standards including My Romance, Shall We Dance and Caravan, and conjures up a nighttime world where the surroundings are posh, the drinks keep flowing, and nobody goes to bed before three in the morning.
Linda Purl has extensive television and theater credits including recent recurring television roles on Reckless, HBO's True Blood, The Office and the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning series Homeland. She has starred in over 45 made-for-TV movies and is especially known for her series roles as Charlene Matlock on Matlock and Ashley Pfister, Fonzie's fiancée, on Happy Days.
Among her many theatre credits, Purl has appeared on Broadway in the Tony-nominated musical The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Getting and Spending and Off-Broadway in The Baby Dance and Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Regional theatre credits include Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Oliver!, Grease, Camille, Same Time Next Year, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Threepenny Opera, Hedda Gabler, The Real Thing, The Little Foxes, Portia in The Merchant of Venice, Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire, Phaedra in Hippolytus, Amanda in A Glass Menagerie, the title role in Nora, the original production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Dinner with Friends, Prudence in Beyond Therapy, The Road to Mecca with Miss Julie Harris, Nora in A Doll's House, Love, Loss and What I Wore, The Vagina Monologues, The Year of Magical Thinking, and Copenhagendirected by Judy Hagerty Lovett.
