April 7 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Sun., April 7 at 8 p.m.  ANDREA MARCOVICCI and MAUDE MAGGART, through popular demand, reprise “Brave and Foolish Things,” their “witty, intriguing, emotional, naughty, clever, sentimental, esoteric, arresting, tender,” and sold-out first outing together, as the first in a series of monthly performances together, echoing the heady 80’s days of the weekly “Marcovicci at Midnight.”

Frequently introduced as “the Queen of Cabaret,” Ms. 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.  She combines forces with Maude Maggart, considered by many to be Marcovicci’s heir apparent, who claims 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.”

And perhaps the cake’s icing, recalling Andrea’s classic show, “New Words,” Maude’s husband David Lucky, himself a Gardenia performance-veteran and songsmith, introduces a brand-new song, as does Musical Director Gerald Sternbach.  More can be learned at andreamarcovicci.com
