Description

Acclaimed actress, producer, writer and Geffen Playhouse alum Rita Wilson is returning to the theater – this time to sing. For one night only, the award-winning stage and screen star will perform songs from her debut Decca Records solo album AM/FM, featuring iconic hits from the ’60s and ’70s ranging from classic love songs to folk-rock tunes. Rita Wilson AM/FM in Concert will benefit both the Geffen Playhouse and The Actors Fund, a national human services organization that helps all professionals in performing arts and entertainment, and will be followed by a postshow wine and dessert reception.

Wilson’s new album AM/FM is a compilation of her take on her favorite songs from childhood – from the AM radio recordings she first experienced in the back seat of her parents’ car to the FM singer-songwriter jams she sung while at the wheel herself – and features guest artists Chris Cornell, Sheryl Crow, Jimmy Webb, Jackson Browne and Faith Hill, among others.
