Melissa Errico: What About Today? - Live at 54 BELOW [DVD]
Melissa Errico, Tony Award® nominee, has starred on Broadway, on network television and film and is an accomplished recording artist and musical concert performer. This DVD is live footage from her opening night cabaret performance of “What About Today?” at New York City’s acclaimed supper club 54 BELOW. On this DVD you will see Melissa perform a 15-song collection that includes 11 tracks, which Melissa has never recorded before including the strong title track by David Shire and an alluring dash of Bacharach ("The April Fools") to accent her fluent performances of a pair of Michel Legrand classics. Time-traveling back to her 1993 starring role as Broadway's Eliza Doolittle, fans finally get a recorded version of "Show Me" from Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady along with her favorite song from Frank Wildhorn's Dracula, The Musical, which was also never recorded. There is a generous sprinkling of Sondheim that is guaranteed to satisfy his legion of fans as well as Errico's devotees: a comedic & vocal tour de force with "Getting Married Today," a sweetly jazzy "Small World" & a bewitching rendition of "No More" from Into The Woods which, in Errico's soulful and philosophical voice becomes a life lesson of it's own. Errico also takes the roof off the nightclub with "Meadowlark," "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?" (her tribute to Eydie Gorme) and some unexpected disco!
