LTV Studios and Josh Gladstone welcome the beloved art form of cabaret back to East Hampton by hosting a brand new concert series entitled American Songbook…Then & Now. This five-part series celebrates the classic cabaret stylings of the great American Songbook as performed and interpreted by some of the region’s finest artists. The next performance, Two for the Road, will take place on Tuesday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. at LTV Studios (75 Industrial Road, Wainscott, NY 11975) and stars Christina Andreas with Mary Silvestri on piano.
Tickets can be purchased by texting LTVANDREAS to 41444 or by clicking the link: https://igfn.us/form/9lFG_g. Producer Josh Gladstone, who Executive Director Michael Clark brought onboard earlier this year to produce performing arts at LTV, has presented theatrical events and musical concerts in the area for many years (including over two decades at Guild Hall, where cabaret flourished).
Gladstone has invited a roster of topnotch talent to inaugurate this dynamic new series in LTV’s intimate, black-box Studio Three Theater. Two for the Road honors the many journeys the past few years have brought to Christine Andreas, and her musical director/composer/arranger/husband Martin Silvestri. Join the couple as they traveled from state to state, and country to country, concertizing and picking up pieces of the culture in each of their destinations. The music reflects this international flair, from the subtle English flavor in Could Have Danced All Night to the slightest trace of a drawl in Clint Black’s Something That We Do.

CHRISTINE ANDREAS: Christine Andreas’ shows in NY at Feinstein’s 54Below: Love is Good, be-Mused, And So It Goes…, Cafe Society, and most recently PIAF – No Regrets had the NY Times accusing her of “…electrifying her audiences, transforming them with pure alchemy and delicately killing with the sheer beauty of her voice…”. Ms. Andreas made her mark in seminal revivals of Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, and On Your Toes, as well as the original production of The Scarlet Pimpernel and the first national tour of The Light in the Piazza; so it should be no surprise that great storytelling is in her blood. She also has one of the finest of Broadway voices, an instrument with a huge, expressive range, capable of belting to the rafters, and pliable enough to sing the gentlest lullaby.
The title TWO FOR THE ROAD is to honor the many journeys the past few years have brought to her and her musical director/composer/arranger/husband Martin Silvestri as they traveled from state to state, and country to country, concertizing and picking up pieces of the culture in each of their destinations. The music reflects this international flair, from the subtle English flavor in “I Could Have Danced All Night” to the slightest trace of a drawl in Clint Black‘s “Something That We Do.”
