Summer In The City, a series of concerts at Birdland, located at 315 W. 44th St., New York City, featuring top Broadway performers, will continue Monday, July 17th at 7pm, with Lucie Arnaz in "Lucie's Birthday Bash at Birdland."
"The show, a casual, birthday party/showbiz extravaganza, will include beloved standards, some new tunes, original material, a few Latin songs close to Lucie's heart!," state press notes. Ron Able will serve as musical director/accompanist and there will be some very special surprise guests.
Arnaz, who currently plays wealthy divorcee Muriel Eubanks in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, received the Theatre World Award for her performance in the Neil Simon/Marvin Hamlisch/Carole Bayer Sager musical, They're Playing Our Song. She returned to Broadway 13 years later to star in Simon's Pulitzer Prize/Tony Award-winning play Lost in Yonkers. She starred opposite Tommy Tune in the national tour of My One and Only, and in the national tours of Whose Life Is It Anyway?, and Social Security. She also appeared in the West End premiere of the musical The Witches of Eastwick. Film and TV credits include Down to You, The Jazz Singer, "Here's Lucy" and "The Lucie Arnaz Show".
There will be a $35 cover plus $10 food/drink minimum, and reservations may be made by calling 212-581-3080 or visiting www.instantseats.com/birdland.
