Following two previous engagements, Tony Award winner Betty Buckley will return to Feinstein’s at the Nikko for two performances of her new show Story Songs on October 21 and 22.

Buckley will share a collection of songs by Radiohead and musical theater favorites Stephen Schwartz and Jason Robert Brown. The evening will also include works by the next generation of theater composers, including Joe Iconis and Ben Toth. Buckley will be joined by jazz pianist Christian Jacob, her longtime musical director and arranger.

Buckley, a 2012 Theatre Hall of Fame inductee, won a Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella, in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. She received her second Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a musical for her performance as Hesione in Triumph of Love. Her other Broadway credits include 1776, Pippin, Song and Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and Carrie.

Located within Hotel Nikko, Feinstein’s at the Nikko presents a wide range of entertainers from stage and screen all within an intimate 140-seat cabaret setting.
