Michael Feinstein production eyes March premiere
Popular crooner Michael Feinstein has locked down dates for his return to Broadway in “All About Me,” which will begin previews March 13 at an unannounced Shubert theater, with opening night set for March 30.Produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, the show will feature Feinstein, one of the premier contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, performing standards and new songs, backed by a small orchestra. Feinstein’s previous Broadway concert engagements have included “Isn’t It Romantic” in 1988 and “Piano and Voice” in 1990. Announcing his Rialto schedule, Feinstein also attempted to clear up confusion between his show and the upcoming Dame Edna vehicle titled “It’s All About Me,” also expected to open in spring. “While I was very surprised to learn of the similarity of titles, I’ve always been a fan of Dame Edna, and I wish her all the best,” Feinstein said. The singer received a Grammy nomination earlier this year for his latest release, “The Sinatra Project,” from Concord Records. He is preparing the PBS music series “Michael Feinstein: Man on a Mission,” to air in 2010.
