  • Show Description
  • Tony Award-nominated Broadway star and recording artist, Melissa Errico, returns again to Crazy Coqs for the fifth time, in a brand new concert featuring show-stopping standards from The Great American Songbook and greatest hits by her long-term collaborators, the late and much-missed music theatre legends, Stephen Sondheim and Michel Legrand. Cheekily subtitled “The Mis-Education of Melissa Errico,”she sings the great songs that were her musical, romantic, intellectual, and erotic education. Using the inimitable storyteller style, that has made her a favorite among New York Times readers, Melissa spins personal tales of life on (& off) stage. Songs by Rodgers & Hart, Jule Styne, Harry Warren, Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell & James Taylor.

    Known across the world for her starring roles on Broadway – My Fair Lady, Sunday In The Park With George, Passion, Les Misérables and Legrand’s sole Broadway show Amour – Melissa has long been equally celebrated by audiences and critics alike for her live concert and cabaret performances, as well as her award-winning recordings, including Sondheim Sublime (‘the best all-Sondheim album ever recorded’ – The Wall Street Journal), her symphonic album Legrand Affair, and her latest release— heard last November at Crazy Coqs with the James Pearson Band — the smart & sexy Out Of The Dark: The Film Noir Project.


    “A gob-smacking stunner! The actress-singer is absolutely on fire, in superb voice and utterly at the top of her game. As a total performer she’s mesmerizing, vibrant, engaging…but more than that, she has the uncanny ability to actually inhabit a song. The glorious voice, the charm, wit, and complete authenticity is the enchanting package that is Melissa Errico. To be bathed in all of this, plus her deep love for Michel Legrand & Stephen Sondheim, especially, is not only to be supremely entertained but to have shared in a truly special experience of stellar
    proportions” – Theater Pizzazz

    “Stunned into an amazing feeling of having witnessed something life changing, life enhancing and of incredible beauty…an unforgettable evening. Her artistry is beyond superb. She is quite the Maria Callas of the American Musical, illuminating this music like no other. The show was simply a lesson in greatness and interpretive genius, not to mention beautiful music making.” – Opera News

    “Everything she sings is sublime.” – Wall Street Journal

    “At times perching herself coquettishly on top of the piano, this superb stylist kept a rapt first-night audience enthralled with 90 minutes”– Jeremy Chapman

    “Any chance to hear Melissa sing is a chance worth taking!” – The New York Times

    “With Melissa Errico you get the full package – a voice to die for like no other, a fabulous, sparkly dress she bought specially for the Crazy Coqs, an infectious giggle with all her storytelling and an obvious love of performing great songs.
    It’s not just the voice, it’s the way she stretches words and phrases, the expressive use of hands and body that makes this Long Island mother of three so special, visually as much as vocally. At times perching herself coquettishly on top of the piano, this superb stylist kept a rapt first-night audience enthralled for 90 minutes. As long as singers like the divine Errico are around to carry the torch forward, the music of Legrand, as with Sondheim, will never end. What a legacy those two giants have left behind.” – Jeremy Chapman
