Broadway legend Donna McKechnie at Proctors
One Night Only! 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27
Tony Award® winner headlines intimate cabaret series
SCHENECTADY, N.Y.—JAN. 2, 2018—Tony Award® winner, Donna McKechnie’s new show, Same Place: Another Time, is a bit of musical déjà vu, celebrating the scintillating 70s in New York City—the heyday of Studio 54.
McKechnie headlines One Night Only! The Cabaret Series at Proctors, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27. Tickets, $40–$50, are available at the Box Office at Proctors, 432 State Street, Schenectady; by phone at 518.346.6204; and online at proctors.org.
The journey McKechnie takes puts a personal spin on the “ingénue” coming to New York, finding love and success, losing her innocence along the way, perhaps, but never her spirit. It is beautifully illuminated by the music of Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Marvin Hamlisch, Peter Allen, Jim Croce and Leroy Anderson.
McKechnie received a Tony for her performance in the original production of A Chorus Line, and is regarded internationally as one of Broadway’s foremost dancing and singing leading ladies. Her Broadway shows include How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum; The Education of Hyman Kaplan; Sondheim—A Musical Tribute; On The Town; Promises, Promises; Company; State Fair and The Visit. She has starred in numerous productions in London’s West End, including Promises, Promises; Company; Follies and The Wild Party.
