Ethel Waters: Blues, Broadway, and Jazz
May 02, 2012 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM
Ethel Waters was a singular entertainer who conquered Broadway, nightclubs, movies, television and radio. At one time, she was the highest-paid entertainer on Broadway. She was a major player in the introduction of jazz to a broader American market, but her influence on the very nature of jazz itself cannot be overstated. Michael Feinstein will host and perform in a unique concert that combines the personal history of Ethel Waters with a celebration of her importance to our musical culture. Hosted by Michael Feinstein, featuring Adriane Lenox (Doubt, The Blind Side), Catherine Russell, Tracie Thoms (Rent, The Devil Wears Prada), and others.
