May 30 & June 6
Broadway powerhouse Haley Swindal is back by popular demand in Golden Girl – a brand-new concert event celebrating the music of an era that her heart and soul were born in – The Golden Age. With influences ranging from Rosemary Clooney to Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, Haley puts her own stamp on songs that made these great dames stars. Haley will knock-out-of-the-park standards such as “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” and “Cry Me A River,” all with fresh arrangements by musical director to the stars Tedd Firth (Michael Feinstein, Ana Gasteyer, Brian Stokes Mitchell). Conceived and directed by Will Nunziata (concert director for Tony Award winner Lillias White), this is an evening that will have you laughing, crying, and tapping your feet all within a matter of minutes, and a true showbiz event where a brand-new star is born.
Haley has appeared on Broadway and on tour with Jekyll and Hyde, White Christmas, Jesus Christ Superstar opposite Ted Neeley, and at Lincoln Center in The Secret Garden. She has performed in concert at Carnegie Hall alongside the great standards vocalist Steve Tyrell, acclaimed Irish tenor Ronan Tynan, and under the baton of Steven Reineke with the New York Pops. She won a New York Emmy for her appearance on Kids on Deck and recently appeared in the film Walt Before Mickey.
Featuring Tom Hubbard on bass, Sherrie Maricle on percussion, Amy Griffiths on reeds, Jami Dauber on horns, and Tedd Firth on piano.
