ANDREA MARCOVICCI and MAUDE MAGGART—“A GARDENIA CHRISTMAS”
December 10 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Sun., Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. ANDREA MARCOVICCI and MAUDE MAGGART—“A Gardenia Christmas.”
Join these two fast friends for this warm-hearted celebration of the Holidays—an evening of perennial favorites….and surprises.
Frequently introduced as “the Queen of Cabaret,” Andrea Marcovicci transformed the genre, has created over 35 nightclub acts at The Gardenia, and holds the record—an unprecedented 25 seasons—at the legendary Oak Room of The Algonquin Hotel—as well as the distinction of being the Oak Room’s final performer before its closing. Maude Maggart, considered by many Ms. Marcovicci’s heir apparent, stakes claim to her own cabaret beginnings at The Gardenia a half generation later. Our favorite endorsement of Ms. Maggart comes from Jim Bruce: “If you have not yet heard Maude Maggart sing, I envy you the moment of discovery because there is nothing quite like the very first time you realize what a talent she is. Then again there is also nothing quite like every single time after.” Maude’s husband, David Lucky, himself a songsmith and Gardenia performance veteran, serves as “Special Guest” for this show. Musical Director is Gerald Sternbach. Even more can be learned at andreamarcovicci.com.
