The Broadway at Birdland concert series is pleased to announce that Broadway leading lady Melissa Errico will be bringing a special summer holiday concert to her favorite jazz venue in NYC, celebrating the sexy and heartfelt songs of Hollywood & Broadway in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The one-night-only event will take place on Monday, July 3 at 7pm.


Melissa’s setlist was inspired by her latest concerts with Michael Feinstein, especially their recent debut together at Carnegie Hall, which featured film music of the 40s & 50s. Expect to hear songs immortalized by Doris Day, Peggy Lee & Judy Garland, peppered with
Melissa's unique and funny personality and stories of her family roots in the original Ziegfeld Follies. Material will include "Friendly Star," "Blue Room," " Somewhere Over The Rainbow," and "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend." The show will be directed by Scott Barnes, and musical directed by Tedd Firth.
