On Monday, June 25, 2012, The Laurie Beechman Theatre will serve up the delightful musical soiree We're Having A Dinner Party: A Jubilee of Delicious Music. Joining Babs Rubenstein and Liam Forde are Whitney Bashor (The Fantasticks, Amazing Grace), Alyssa Fox (Wicked), and Corbitt Williams.
According to press notes, "It's a party! Hosted by Babs Rubenstein and Liam Forde, indulge your palate with a smorgasbord of music by The Seekers, William Finn, Paul McCartney, Blossom Dearie, Kay Thompson and more."
Rubenstein and Forde are recent graduates of The Boston Conservatory. Forde was most recently seen in Amazing Grace with Goodspeed Musicals and Rubenstein was featured in the Cleveland staging of the new musical Fat Camp last summer. Rubenstein and Forde's diametric talents offer two contrasting palates for two diverse appetites.
The musicians include Zach Eldridge on drums and Micah Young on piano, with the occasional piano stylings of Liam Forde. Musical Direction and arrangements are also by Forde, and direction is by Joe Barros.
The Laurie Beechman Theatre at The West Bank Café is located at 407 West 42nd St. in NYC. Doors open at 9pm, and show time is 9:30pm. There is a $10 cover and a $15 food/beverage minimum. To make reservations, call The Beechman at: 212-695-6909. For more information, visit: www.beechmantheatre.com
