Stage and screen veteran Andrea Marcovicci, who celebrated her 70th birthday in November with two farewell New York solo concerts at Feinstein's/54 Below, will tackle the songs of Tony-winning composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim in her newest cabaret act.
A Sondheim Evening, which will be presented June 21 and 22, will celebrate Marcovicci’s 34th anniversary at The Gardenia in Los Angeles. The actor will be joined onstage for duets with Maude Maggart and Todd Murray.
Marcovicci starred on Broadway in the musical Ambassador and in Frank D. Gilroy's Any Given Day. Her screen credits include The Front, Someone to Love, Jack the Bear, Who Is Henry Jaglom?, The Water Engine, and Trapper John, M.D. It has been the cabaret stage, however, where she has received the most acclaim. The singing actor has performed at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and in halls throughout the world. Her solo albums include I’ll Be Seeing You: Love Songs of WWII, New Words, Here There and Everywhere, December Songs, If I Were a Bell, The Songs of Frank Loesser, Andrea Marcovicci Sings Rodgers & Hart, My Christmas Song for You, As Time Goes By: The Best of Andrea Marcovicci, and Smile.
