Hot scoop: One Night Only-Klea Blackhurst celebrates CD release in a 42nd St. Moom Benefit!
Klea Blackhurst will graciously hold a CD release concert to benefit 42nd St. Moon on Monday October 10th at the Eureka Theatre. Musical Director Michael Rice will be at the piano.
Her new CD is entitled: Autumn in New York: Vernon Duke's Broadway.
The evening will include light food and drink. Right now the working theme is for the evening to have a "tropical" flare as the music from the CD lends itself to a tropical, deco kind of feel.
Now that "tropical" description may surprise you if you've only been thinking of Klea as the Mermanesque wonder from her CD Everything the Traffic Will Allow, but Lauren has heard tracks from this new CD and says: "It is just wonderful! Very unique and very "Klea," but different. It's not Merman at all - not that that is bad! It is just that the new CD is sweet and Klea shows off her voice, phrasing, and theatricality with perfection. The new work is truly a delight!"
So, consider this your blog exclusive heads up about the evening. This special one night only event is NOT to be missed! Tickets will be $75. But, they aren't on sale yet.
I'm promised more complete information next week.
