Heads up, cabaret fans! Broadway legend Elaine Stritch, a theater icon for 60-some years, will be performing for one last time at the Cafe Carlyle next month.
Strich's new show, Elaine Stritch at the Carlyle: Movin’ Over and Out, a freeform evening of story and song, will play for one week only. This will be the final chance to see the performer – who has been dubbed the Carlyle’s own “Octogenarian Eloise” – give one of her performances at her home venue, before she leaves the Carlyle Hotel and New York City for good. (We hear she is relocating to her home state of Michigan.) Over the past seven years, Stritch has played four sold-out engagements at the Café Carlyle.
Good to know: Stritch will be joined by her longtime musical collaborator, Rob Bowman, at the piano.
Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street at Madison Avenue). Elaine Stritch will play Tuesday, April 2 through Saturday, April 6 at 8:45PM. There is a $125 cover charge per person and $85 bar seating per person. For more information, visit www.thecarlyle.com.
