Eliza Leoni & Sharon Rietkerk to Bring 'Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall' to Feinstein's at the Nikko, 3/9

In 1962, Julie Andrews and Carol Burnett made history with their iconic TV special "Julie and Carol at Carnegie Hall." They followed their smashing success with hit specials in 1971 and 1989. Now, they come to Feinstein's at the Nikko for one performance - Wednesday, March 9 at 7 p.m. - as played by Sharon Rietkerk (Julie) and Eliza Leoni (Carol). Enjoy the very best of the duo's work in all three specials, including gorgeous medleys, relentless teasing, and full dance choruses (as performed by just two women on the Feinstein's stage). You'll feel like you're spending an evening with the icons - right down to their signature accents - in this hilarious celebration of lifelong friendship. With David Brown on piano.
