Off-Broadway’s Signature Theatre will present Betty Buckley: Signature Songs, a one-night-only concert starring Tony winner Betty Buckley, to benefit the theater company’s Legacy Program. The program is currently honoring late playwright Horton Foote. The concert will be held on September 30 at the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center, and will include a cocktail reception.
Buckley, who will star in the world premiere of Horton Foote’s The Old Friends at Signature beginning August 20, will perform a selection of iconic musical theater songs at the benefit. The actress won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella in Cats, and received an additional nomination for Triumph of Love. Her other Broadway credits include 1776, Pippin, Song and Dance, Carrie and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. She starred in both the West End and Broadway productions of Sunset Boulevard.
The Legacy Program honors the lifetime achievement of playwrights who have previously been in residence at Signature by premiering new works or revisiting existing plays. Past Legacy Program productions include work by Edward Albee, Sam Shepard and August Wilson.
