What do Tony winner Randy Graff, Barry Manilow and Barbra Streisand all have in common? They were born in Brooklyn, of course! On February 17, Graff will sing the music of artists from her hometown at Times Square hotspot 54 Below in her one-woman show, Randy Graff: Made in Brooklyn.
Though she made her name on Broadway, Graff's still that girl from the streets of Canarsie. The show will be a celebration through story and song of some of the great music that came from the streets of Brooklyn, and the influence these writers and performers had on her growing up and growing into an award-winning actress and singer. She will be backed by a trio of musicians, including her Musical Director/Arranger/Husband Tim Weil on the piano, Warren Odze on drums and Dick Sarpola on bass.
Graff won the Tony for City of Angels. Her other Broadway credits include: Fiddler on the Roof, A Class Act (Tony nomination), Moon Over Buffalo, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, High Society, Les MIserables and Grease. TV and film credits include Learning to Drive, Keys to Tulsa, Notes From the Underbelly, Law and Order, Mad About You and The Tonight Show.
