Broadway's hottest couple, Andy Karl and Orfeh, make their Feinstein's at the Nikko debut with Legally Bound. After love at first sight in Saturday Night Fever on Broadway and marriage in 2001, this duo famously appeared together in Legally Blonde, a show that led Orfeh to a Tony nomination in 2007. Andy received back-to-back nods himself, one for his star turn as the title character in Rocky in 2014 and another for his role as Bruce Granit in the Broadway revival of On the 20th Century in 2015. He most recently received the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical and his third Tony nomination for his critically acclaimed role as Phil Connors in the Groundhog Day musical.
Reuniting onstage, Andy Karl and Orfeh are joined by music director Steven Jamail in an unforgettable evening of chart-toppers and showstoppers in a performance directed by Charles Randolph-Wright.
Frank Silletti and daughter Ava Vukic return to Feinstein's at the Nikko to celebrate the release of their first CD, Yours and Mine - The Judy & Liza Effect. The "Judy and Liza effect" is the precise moment the climactic note of a Garland or Minnelli song, or even just a word or phrase, grabs you, holds you, and makes you want to break free from the ordinary and burst out in song. It has inspired generations to do exactly that. Frank has been under the influence since childhood and now Ava has the bug too. In this special performance and CD release, father and daughter honor the work of mother and daughter with performances of their iconic songs by Harold Arlen, Kander & Ebb, the Gershwins, Irving Berlin, Roger Edens, and others.
Show begins when the director asks the audience to suggest a popular film title and then the cast, right there on the spot, improvise the "black version" of that film complete with its improvised soundtrack, dance numbers, DVD extras, audition reels & more.

Rolling Stone magazine calls the show "Hot" and the cast a "Comedic A-Team", LA Weekly says the show is "Red Hot" and "Scores more than it's share of belly laughs" while the LA Times calls the show "A Winner"!

Star of such box office juggernauts as The Fly, Jurassic Park, and Independence Day, Jeff Goldblum is more than a talented actor. He's also an acclaimed jazz pianist.

The group returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko following a sold-out engagement in 2015. Don't expect a staid musical recital; Goldblum's show is anything but that. The proceedings often feel extemporaneous, and Goldblum himself usually appears before the show starts as his own opening act, asking the audience movie trivia and true-or-false questions.
