Description

Anne Steele, a two-time MAC nominee, two-time Nightlife Award finalist, and Bistro Award winner, prevailed over an initial pool of 70 contestants in the 7-week jury and audience voted elimination-round competition. Opening for Steele during the run will be her co-finalists Nesha Ward and Stearns Matthews, who will perform short sets on alternating nights.

“Strings Attached,” with music direction by Kenny Davidsen and stage direction by Lennie Watts, daringly re-imagines an array of pop songs, using lush string orchestrations to coax out latent meanings. In “Strings Attached” Steele — backed by piano, violin, cello, bass and guitar — also threads in a number of standards that she freshens with her own contemporary vocal sound. The resulting intersection of pop and traditional sensibilities features songs by Britney Spears, Pink, Queen, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan and Stephen Sondheim among others.
