Carole Demas was the original "Sandy" in the 1972 Broadway production of Grease. Other notable roles were as the original "Baker's Wife" in Stephen Schwartz The Baker's Wife and played "Luisa" in The Fantasticks for two years. She has since appeared on television, regional theatre, and Broadway concerts, including last year's Broadway Originals at Town Hall, which I was lucky enough to see. Tonight, I'm seeing Carole perform her cabaret act at The Laurie Beechman Theatre.
Carole's cabaret act is Summer Nights and she will sing songs from the American Songbook, Broadway, Pop, and Rock. Summer Nights features performances by music director Ian Herman (piano), Sean Harkness (guitar) and special guests Paula Janis (TV’s The Magic Garden), TV’s Ilene Kristen and Broadway’s Josh Franklin. The show is directed by Charles Repole.
Carole's Summer Night begins at 7:00 pm tonight at The Laurie Beechman Theatre (407 West 42nd Street @ Ninth Avenue, NYC) Tickets are $25 (plus $15 minimum); available at 212-695-6909 or http://www.beechmantheatre.com/
