Tony Award-nominee Melissa Errico performs “Ladies of the Playhouse” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 3, and 8 p.m. Friday, June 4, as part of the Broadway Spotlight Concert Series at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope.
“Ladies of the Playhouse” is a concert devoted to the musical highway that once raced from Bucks County to Broadway and back.
In her “talking cabaret” style, Errico will celebrate all the great Broadway writers who made their second – or sometimes their first – homes in this area, singing songs from her own Broadway career associated especially with Oscar Hammerstein, Moss Hart and S.J. Perelman.
There will be songs from Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music,” Perelman’s “One Touch of Venus,” and Moss Hart’s “My Fair Lady” — with a special extension into the mentor and protégé relationship of Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim. For tickets and information, visit bcptheater.org/melissa-errico/.
Errico received a Tony nomination for Best Actress for the musical “Amour.” She starred on Broadway in “My Fair Lady,” “High Society,” “Dracula,” “White Christmas,” “Anna Karenina” and “Les Miserables.”
Errico has made five solo studio CDs, and her album “Sondheim Sublime” (Warner Music, 2018) was released to critical acclaim.
Her essays for the New York Times, “Scenes From An Acting Life,” chronicle the foibles and joys of the actor’s art.
