Amanda McBroom – American international cabaret performer and writer of the hit song, “The Rose,” and her husband, multi-award winning musical theater lion George Ball – present the New York debut of their show, Some Enchanted Evening – Love Songs for Grownups. Some Enchanted Evening takes a deep dive into love with humor and feeling, through songs by such illustrious songwriters as Cole Porter, Jacques Brel, Kurt Weill, Stephen Sondheim, and of course, McBroom herself. The couple met doing Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris and starred in the original off-Broadway production. They have appeared together in Sweeney Todd and other shows in New York, Los Angeles, regionally and internationally.
McBroom is a Golden Globe winner lauded for her talent for writing exceptional songs that are witty and profound and flush with feelings. Never over-the-top, her work seethes with a passion that is artfully funneled into music and lyrics revealed so well in her two most popular songs, “The Rose” (from the Bette Midler film of the same name) and “Errol Flynn,” which McBroom wrote about her father, the actor David Bruce who worked with Flynn and Gary Cooper. McBroom’s songs have been recorded by Leanne Rimes, Barry Manilow, Judy Collins, Barbara Cook, Anne Murray, Harry Belafonte, Betty Buckley, Stephanie Mills and The Manhattan Transfer, among others.
George Ball, a star of the Broadway production of Brel, has just released his Debut CD, Think of Me (Gecko/LML), a collection of theater songs, Americana-tinged heartbreakers and story songs. He is a much-lauded actor and the recipient of two Robbies, an L.A. Drama Critics Circle Awards, the Dramalogue Award, and a Rep Award. His bold baritone, often compared to George Hearn and the late John Raitt, is put to use in a more contemporary fashion on Think of Me, with thoughtful, fresh arrangements by Michele Brourman and Stephan Oberhoff. With music by (among others) Bruce Springsteen and Mike Reid, Think of Me is a true surprise!
