Let Nancy Anderson take you back to a time when speakeasies were born and jazz was king. With Ross Patterson and his little big band, Nancy, fresh off Broadway’s Sunset Boulevard (where she understudied Glenn Close), revisits her critically acclaimed debut album Ten Cents a Dance in a nightclub uniquely appropriate to her quintessential jazz-age take on enduring classics by Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart, Irving Berlin, and the Artie Shaw Orchestra.
Nancy Anderson is a multiple Drama Desk Award Nominee who has appeared in such Broadway shows as A Class Act, Wonderful Town, and Sunset Boulevard. Her show: Nancy Anderson: Ten Cents a Dance is produced for Feinstein’s/54 Below by Scott Siegel, who has created more than 300 major concerts all over the world, including Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year, plus he has produced, written, and directed concerts for Michael Feinstein.
Nancy Anderson is no mere actress. She is no mere singer. Nancy Anderson is a living breathing time machine taking her audiences back to the days when songs and singers were pure class and style… few singers today can so expertly recreate the intracacies and emotions of the early jazz age, making the music as free and exciting today as it was 75 years ago.
