Faith Prince & Tom Wopat team up for Let's Fall In Love, a unique, romantic program of love songs from all eras, including numbers by Frank Loesser, Comden & Green, Thelonious Monk, and Peggy Lee. The evening, featuring an all-star quartet led by Tedd Firth, is directed by Stuart Ross.
Faith Prince is a Tony Award-winning actress who can currently be seen as a regular on Showtime's critically-acclaimed original series Huff. She is best known for her Tony-winning turn as the perennially unwed "Miss Adelaide" in the 1992 Broadway revival of Guys and Dolls, for which she also won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards. She was nominated for two other Tonys for her starring roles in the revival of Bells Are Ringing and Jerome Robbins' Broadway. Her debut CD, A Leap of Faith, recorded live at Joe's Pub in New York, is available on DRG records.
Tom Wopat first came to public attention in the late '70s as the freewheeling Luke Duke on the comedy adventure legendary TV series The Dukes of Hazzard. But his background as a classically trained vocalist is a far cry from the car crashes and simple humor that gave the series a seven-year run. In fact, Wopat is a rare performer equally adept at music, stage and screen -- a singer who can truly act and an actor who can truly sing. In February of 1999, Wopat created the role of Frank Butler to Bernadette Peters' Annie in the Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun, a role which brought him a Tony nomination. Wopat's debut CD, The Still of the Night, released by Angel / Blue Note Records in 2000, effortlessly reinvented a set of beautiful standards in a smooth, intimate and sexy, style, reminiscent of the great crooners of the '40s and '50s. In 2005, Wopat released a tribute CD to the great composer Harold Arlen. Released on the eve of Arlen's 100th birthday, the album highlights Arlen's vast body of work, including legendary standards like "Over the Rainbow" and "One For My Baby."
