About this performance
8 p.m. Polsky Theatre
Her music is as tuneful and clever as the best of the Great American Songbook – part cabaret, part sparkly pop – she’s done "Brecht on Broadway," opened for Lou Reed at Carnegie Hall, sung Woody Allen movie songs at the Hollywood Bowl, performed on "A Prairie Home Companion," duetted with Eartha Kitt and Triumph The Insult Comic Dog, played Hilary Swank’s sister on the big screen, paid tribute to Doris Day, and released four wildly acclaimed albums of original music.
