Feinstein's at the Regency begins its Fall 2004 season with the 94th birthday party for Kitty Carlisle Hart . Ms. Hart's celebration will feature her singing standards by Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Kurt Weill and others, in addition to lively and fascinating stories about the people she has worked with over the years. Musical director David Lewis will accompany her on piano.
Kitty Carlisle Hart is a major New York society figure as well as a singer and actress whose performances range from Broadway musicals like Rodgers & Hart's On Your Toes, major operas like the American premiere of Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucretia and classic film roles opposite the Marx Brothers and Bing Crosby. More recently she has appeared in films such as Radio Days, Six Degree of Separation and Catch Me If You Can. She is perhaps best remembered for being a regular panelist on the long-running television show "To Tell the Truth" for fifteen years.
