Nellie McKay: "I Want To Live!"
FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, continues its star-studded Winter 2011 season with I Want To Live! an evening with NELLIE McKAY, a woman with dubious moral standards, often a guest in seedy bars... The return engagement of the critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and actor, featuring songs from her latest CD Home Sweet Mobile Home, will run from March 22 to April 2. According to The New Yorker, the new disc covers a wide range of pop styles, from rock and soul to Latin and reggae, and is a delight. In concert, McKay is funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented. While her 8:00 PM/8:30 PM early shows will offer her eclectic mix of standards and original material, the 10:30 PM Late Train shows on Fridays and Saturdays will exclusively feature McKays own distinctive compositions. McKay, who performs on piano and ukulele as well as vocals, will be joined by a trio of musicians.
