MELISSA ERRICO SINGS SONDHEIM
LIVE AT ZÉDEL, LONDON
FEBRUARY 22, 24 & 25, 2018
After multiple sold-out engagements in 2017 in New York and Washington DC, Tony Award-nominated singer, actress and writer Melissa Errico makes her London solo debut at Crazy Coqs, bringing her gorgeous voice, and a unique and unpredictable intelligence, wit and mischief to the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim.
Of her Sondheim concert, The New York Times has recently said "she sings beautifully. Her familiarity with the way the songs work to advance character and story in vivo naturally informs her in vitro style, which is actorly to begin with. An attention to the lyrics and their rush of harsh "wisdoms" was Ms. Errico's keynote. She refreshed cabaret staples, and lightly jazzed others, demonstrating how the meaning that is locked in tiny verbal gestures can be released with bold phrasing."
With classics and curios from Into the Woods, Follies, Sweeney Todd, Anyone Can Whistle, Company, A Little Night Music and songs from shows she has starred in, this concert is one no Sondheim or Broadway fan should miss! Errico's history with Sondheim began when he selected her to star as Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, and then she starred in acclaimed New York productions as Clara in Passionand Leona in Do I Hear A Waltz?

HEllo, I'm Shelley duvall
But really, I'm Robbie Rozelle, writer/director/funny guy who creates cabaret with amazing people with the philosophy of moving past the "and then I moved to New York" trope and into the fan mindset of "I want to hear you sing this." So far, it's working...
