About this show

Jim Caruso's Cast Party and present Linda Lavin: Songs And Confessions of a Former Waitress as part of "Summer In The City @ Birdland," a series of 7pm events featuring top Broadway stars, cabaret performers and songwriters at the legendary club. The star of Alice is up-close and personal as she recalls her roots in the theater (originating Sondheim's "The Boy From..." in The Mad Show) and her early cabaret trials and tribulations in some less-than-glamorous boites. Her musical choices range from Gershwin to Maltby & Shire; Dave Frishberg to Trisha Yearwood, and the musical relationship with pal Billy Stritch at the piano only adds to the party atmosphere this hostess-with-the-mostess exudes.
