Go on, look up there at the title of this post. Look at that. Is that a thing of beauty? I am very proud of that subject line, people.
For all four of my shows at Birdland in March, I am being joined by the magnificent ANIKA NONI ROSE, diva of the stage (Tony Award winner for Caroline, Or Change and star of the 2008 revival of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof), television (star of HBO’s The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency), movies (Dreamgirls), and, according to my four-year-old daughter, easily the coolest person that has ever stepped foot in this house (thank you, Princess and the Frog).
Anika’s going to be singing a whole bunch of songs, some brand new, some way old, and she will be accompanied not just by the usual Caucasian Rhythm Kings, but by the Brand New Caucasian Horns in their concert debut! That stage is going to be crowded, y’all.
So come git your tickets, people! 7 pm on March 14, 16, 17 & 18. See you there!
She was even in From Justin to Kelly! That’s a STAR!
See you in March!
