The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce that Linda Lavin will return to the historic stage with “My Second Farewell Concert,” on Monday, July 24 at 7pm.

This concert will give audiences a chance to meet Broadway and television star Linda Lavin up-close and personal as she recalls her roots in the theater, her love of American standards, Steely Dan, and a life-long obsession with the big bands of the 1940’s. Linda’s varied musical choices range from Cole Porter to Trisha Yearwood, and the musical relationship with pianist/singer Billy Stritch only adds to the party atmosphere this hostess-with-the-mostess exudes. The band is rounded out by Tom Hubbard on bass, Steve Bakunas on drums, Ron Affif on guitar, and special guest Aaron Weinstein on violin.

Linda Lavin first burst on the New York musical comedy scene with roles in Oh, Kay!, It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman and On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever. She also won kudos for her straight acting roles in Little Murders and Last of the Red Hot Lovers. TV beckoned and she soon became a household name as the star of the sitcom "Alice.” During the nine seasons it was on the air, Linda nabbed two Golden Globe awards and an Emmy nomination. She even sang "There's a New Girl in Town" over the opening credits of the show. Following this success, she focused her attentions once again on the stage. She earned renewed respect, in addition to critic's awards, for her diversified Broadway work in Gypsy, The Sisters Rosensweig, Collected Stories, Broadway Bound (1987 Tony award), Death Defying Acts (Obie award), The Diary of Anne Frank (Tony nomination) and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife (Tony nomination). She also appeared in Candide with New York City Opera, Our Mother’s Brief Affair, Too Much Sun, The Lyons, Follies, Other Desert Cities, Carol Burnett's autobiographical play Hollywood Arms portraying Burnett's grandmother, and Paul Rudnick’s The New Century at Lincoln Center.
