“Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and a masterly balance between poignancy and wit.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Andrea Marcovicci – the singer and actress hailed as “torch singer, spellbinder, heart-breaker” by People – will celebrate her birthday with a return to Feinstein’s/ 54 Below on Friday, November 18 at 7:00 PM for the New York City debut of her acclaimed show “A Gershwin Valentine.” This bouquet of love songs by one of America’s most beloved collaborations, the brothers Gershwin, includes rediscovered gems and perennial favorites such as “Boy Wanted,” “Embraceable You,” “Someone To Watch Over Me” and “The Man I Love.” A departure from Andrea’s usual songbook series, this show focuses on the delight of romance found within the music of George Gershwin, the lyrics of his brother, Ira, the passionate rhythm of Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dorothy Parker, Ogden Nash, and other poets, and the warmth of a lover’s eyes when enchanted by “requited” love. Marcovicci will be joined by her longtime Musical Director Shelly Markham on piano and Jered Egan on Bass. Her east coast tour dates of “A Gershwin Valentine” also include shows at the Rrazz Room at the Raven in New Hope, PA on October 8 and the RRazz Room at the Prince in Philadelphia, PA on November 20.
After seeing “A Gershwin Valentine” when it debuted at The Gardenia in Hollywood, acclaimed composer Stephen Schwartz noted, “Anyone interested in performing cabaret needs to see Andrea Marcovicci do it. No one understands, or delivers, that special and specific art form better than she. Seeing one of her shows is always both a pleasure and an education.”
Andrea holds the record of an unprecedented 25 seasons at the legendary Oak Room of the Algonquin Hotel, and was the final performer ever to grace that stage. In recent seasons, she has appeared at The Café Carlyle and Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater. In a career spanning over four decades, Andrea has created over thirty nightclub acts, has sold out Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, Lincoln Center, and appeared in concert with numerous orchestras and at the White House. She has acted in films, television and theatre, both regionally and on and off-Broadway. Her co-stars have included Danny DeVito, Woody Allen, Sir Michael Caine, and Sir John Gielgud, among others.
