Tony winner Betty Buckley, who will star in the fall national tour of the Tony-winning revival of Hello, Dolly!, returns to Joe’s Pub June 5 to celebrate the Palmetto Records release of her new album Hope, which was recorded live at the intimate cabaret within the Public Theater last fall.
This June 5–9 concert engagement coincides with Buckley's debut opposite Dominic Cooper (The History Boys) as Madame L'Angelle on the AMC series Preacher, which begins its third season June 25.
Highlights at Joe’s Pub will include the album’s title song, which was penned by Jason Robert Brown; Steely Dan songs; and tunes from Buckley's favorite singer-songwriters Paul Simon, T Bone Burnett, Joni Mitchell, and Mary Chapin Carpenter, as well as classic pop standards.
Hope will first be available for sale at Buckley's concerts. The official release date is June 8. Pre-order for the album is available here.
Betty Buckley offered acclaimed performances in Broadway's Sunset Boulevard, Carrie, Song & Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 1776, Triumph of Love, and Promises, Promises. She won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in the Broadway production of Cats, and she starred on the London stage in Promises, Promises, Dear World, and Sunset Boulevard, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her work in the latter.
