My fab friend, T. Oliver Reid, who has appeared in more Broadway shows than I can count, a 2012 MAC award recipient for Best Debut-male and the 2011 Julie Wilson award, will open tonight at Feinstein’s at the Loews Regency, 540 Park Avenue in NYC. Additional performances will be on Sunday December 2, Monday December 3 and Sunday December 9, 2012. All performances will be at 10:30 PM.
Reid’s new show, “Drop Me Off In Harlem”is an evening of club-hopping to the music of Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington and Andy Raza through the elegant nightclubs and working class speakeasies that made uptown gay and delightful, however dull and depressing downtown Manhattan could be.
Stephen Holden of The New York Times (THE NEW YORK TIMES people!) said of Reid, “the wistfulness of his tone and the smoothness of his delivery are all his own… a soulful crooner with resemblances to the young Bobby Short”
T. Oliver’s Broadway shows include some of the Great White Way’s biggest, splashiest hit musicals: “Kiss Me Kate”, “Chicago”, “Follies,” “Thoroughly Modern Millie”, “Never Gonna Dance”, “La Cage Aux Folles”, “The Wedding Singer”, “Damn Yankees”, “Mary Poppins”, “Sister Act” and the upcoming “Cotton Club Parade”.
The music charge for the show is $20 with a one drink minimum.
For reservations, please call 212-339-4095.
