Acclaimed jazz vocalist La Tanya Hall joins forces with award-winning director and cabaret artist Eric Michael Gillett to bring the songs of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty to Feinsteins at Loews Regency in their new songbook, Nothing to Lose But Your Heart. With music encompassing the Tony Award-winning score for Ragtime, as well as My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Lucky Stiff, Seussical and more, Gillett and Hall bring their unique stamp to a wildly diverse catalogue of music by two of Broadways most popular contemporary songwriters. Nothing to Lose But Your Heart is an evening not to be missed by anyone who longs for the chance to risk everything in the search for love.
The verb sings is really inadequate to evoke the acute empathy with which Eric Michael Gillett transforms theatre songs. Not only do you see the world through the characters eyes, but you also feel it through their nervous systems via Mr. Gilletts theatrical shamanism. New York Times
La Tanya Hall is a woman ripe with talent (whose) interpretative skills are a marvel. Ladies and gentlemen, La Tanya Hall is a real honest-to-goodness jazz singer. Jazz.com
