Television and stage actress Anastasia Barzee (Broadway: White Chrsitmas, Henry IV Parts 1 & 2, Urinetown, Miss Saigon, TV: Golden Boy, Made in Jersey, others) will sing the music of Burt Bacharach in a special performance at New York’s Metropolitan Room on April 18, 19, 20 & 24, 2013.
“It was a great pleasure working with Anastasia, she is a great actress and sings my music, which is difficult at times, beautifully.”-Burt Bacharach
Drawing on the Bacharach catalog, Barzee will explore the theme of love — who we love, how we love and why in the world do we keep doing it over and over again. The show will feature many of Bacharach’s most famous songs, including “What The World Needs Now,” “Alfie” and “Close to You,” as well as new, unrecorded songs from Some Lovers, Bacharach’s recent musical collaboration with lyricist Steven Sater (Spring Awakening). Barzee will be joined by The Kevin Hays Trio (Kevin Hays on piano, Rob Jost on bass and French horn, and Greg Joseph on drums) along with Teddy Kumpel on guitar, banjo, and mandolin.
