Sometimes this way a Broadway legend comes. If you love music and musical theater, you’ll love the opportunity to spend an evening with Christine Andreas and her Grammy nominated husband/accompanist, Martin Silvestri. The show is called “Love Is Good,” and here’s what the critics say:
“The most thrilling rendition of “La Vie en Rose” this side of Edith Piaf.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Her engagement with lyrics is so intense that you feel you are her, living the song she is performing.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Songbird Christine Andreas….is everything anyone who loves romantic pop music could want—simply sine qua non” – Liz Smith, New York Post
“Love Is Good, and so is the pure, shining voice of the angelic Christine Andreas…it‘s an incredible instrument, that voice of hers..…restrained and heartfelt, she truly connects with the lyrics’ emotions—and with ours” – Time Out New York
“Love Is Good” is a shared musical valentine between super talented husband and wife devoid of the lovey-dovey cuteness that can curdle marital duets in nightclubs. It is a breathtaking tour through some of the all-time classic love songs.
Ms. Andreas first captured New York City theatre-goer’s hearts in the 20th anniversary production of MY FAIR LADY as Eliza Doolittle (Theatre World Award); followed by the revival of OKLAHOMA!, as Laurey, working with Billy Hammerstein & Agnes de Millle (Tony Nomination); and ON YOUR TOES, as Frankie Frayne, directed by the legendary director George Abbott, (Tony Nomination). She last appeared on Broadway as Jacqueline in the Tony/Olivier Award winning production of LA CAGE AUX FOLLES with Kelsey Grammer and Douglas Hodge, after starring as Margaret Johnson in the much acclaimed National tour of THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA.
She created the role of Marguerite St. Just on Broadway in the original production of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL opposite Douglas Sills and Terrence Mann. Other Broadway credits include WORDS AND MUSIC with Sammy Cahn, Nancy in ANGEL STREET with Dina Merrill, Rebecca in RAGS, the short-lived Alice in the short-lived LEGS DIAMOND with the late, great and wonderful Peter Allen, and the Broadway bound and derailed Erte production of STARDUST.
She has sung in concert in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Town Hall, the Kennedy Center Jazz Festival and the Caramoor Festival to name a few. Symphonic work includes the Boston Philharmonic with Ben Zander, the Tulsa Symphony with Peter Nero, the Detroit Symphony, the Richmond Symphony with Charles Strouse, the Palm Beach Pops, and The Silicon Valley Symphony.
And you can hear her live in this exclusive Pacific Northwest engagement only at Vashon Center for the Arts on August 10.
