More James Barbour!
Due to overwhelming audience and critical response to James Barbour's holiday show (see my Dec. 26 rave review), Sardi’s management has scheduled additional Saturday evening performances with this charismatic Broadway veteran.
The new concert series, entitled “LOVE SONGS,” will premiere on Saturday, Jan. 31 and continue through Saturday, Feb. 28 at
SARDI’S (234 W. 44th St. – between Broadway & Eighth Avenue). Special Valentine’s Concerts are scheduled on Friday, Feb. 13 and Sunday, Feb. 15.
For this latest offering, Barbour will sing "Loving You Keeps Me Alive," "If Ever I Would Leave You," "If I Loved You," " If I Can’t Love Her," "If Dreams Come True," "My Funny Valentine," "Embraceable You," "On The Street Where You Live," "Unexpected Song," "Autumn Leaves" and others.
The concerts are being presented by Treehouse Entertainment Inc. and Roberta Nusim for TMA (Theatrical Marketing Associates). Jeremy Roberts is the musical director.
In his most recent theatrical role, Barbour ignited audiences to thundering standing ovations for his emotionally blistering portrayal of Sydney Carton in “A TALE OF TWO CITIES” at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. I was one of those who was wowed, and I was delighted again in a new way at his Christmas concert. If you missed those performances, make it a point to get to this one. You won't be disappointed.
