Broadway stars Michael Cerveris (Sweeney Todd, Tony-winner for Assassins), Antonique Smith (Rent) and Annie Golden (The Full Monty) will perform at the Bowery Ballroom on St. Patrick's Day, Saturday, March 17th.
"Joe Hurley's 8th annual 'AllStar Irish Rock Revue' features dozens of singers performing all the great Irish tunes, from Van Morrison to U2 to Costello, etc.," state press materials.
Cerveris, coming directly from the Public Theater's production of King Lear, will perform Morrissey's "Irish Blood, English Heart." Golden will perform the traditional gem "I'm a Man You Don't Meet Every Day" and Antonique Smith, coming directly from Rent, will sing Sinead O'Connor's classic "Nothing Compares to You.
Hurley was recently joined on stage at his soldout Joe's Pub show by Andrea Marcovicci, who joined him for two duets - "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and Hurley's "The Bedsheets Of Lili Marlene."
