LADIES’ NIGHT: Great Ladies of Song
“It’s Gloria’s elegant, refined voice that holds the listener. So intimate and present, she’s able to paint amazing pictures with her interpretations for these classic songs.” -Dave Koz
After a sold out debut in December, Gloria Reuben returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below! Gloria is best known as an Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominated actress, with acclaimed roles in, among other TV series, ER, Raising the Bar, Falling Skies, and Mr. Robot. Gloria co-starred in Steven Spielberg’s film Lincoln, where she portrayed Elizabeth Keckley, alongside Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field. Even though known as an actress, music has always been a big part of this Toronto-born multitalented artist’s life. She even took time off from her acting career to tour as a backup singer for Tina Turner in Ms. Turner’s tour 24/7!
Now Gloria returns to the stage, her longstanding love. Her new show, “LADIES’ NIGHT: Great Ladies of Song” will please audiences with a fresh approach to songs from Ella, Shirley,and Billie to Alanis, Sheryl, and Oleta (among others), in her unique storytelling and intimate singing style.
Her most recent jazz album, Perchance to Dream, was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Marty Ashby. As All About Jazz wrote: “Though the actress/singer is more well-known as an actress, she could have just as easily broken through as a singer. This CD [Perchance to Dream] will definitely cause music fans to reconsider their thinking regarding Gloria Reuben. They will now be forced to consider her as more than just a famous actress who sometimes sings.”
