NYC: BROADWAY AT BIRDLAND: "PORTRAIT OF AN ARTIST"

Broadway at Birdland is proud to announce a new series called "Portrait of an Artist," in which actor/director/painter Steve Bakunas interviews musical and theatrical icons while painting their portrait before the audience's eyes! These famous folks will share their successes, failures and lessons learned in a very intimate one-on-one chat on the historic BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) stage. Online media partner BroadwayWorld.com will also be on hand to film the event, which will air exclusively on the site at a later date. Steve Bakunas kicks off this unprecedented series with an intimate no-holds-barred conversation with his wife, Tony and Golden Globe winning actress Linda Lavin on Sunday, September 16th at 1:00 pm. The audience will be privy to Lavin's personal and professional life while Steve's portrait unfolds. By his count, Steve Bakunas has had about 70 jobs throughout his life. The Connecticut native has done everything from selling Fuller brushes and used cars to driving for the Grateful Dead and working in Circus Vargas. Ultimately, he became a stage actor before discovering his creative bent as a painter, sculptor, set designer, carpenter, builder and jazz drummer. Married to actress Linda Lavin, he now buys and restores older homes and is revitalizing low-income neighborhoods in the couple's North Carolina hometown. A sophisticated folk-inspired artist, his portraits have been shown at galleries in Wilmington, NC, and New York City. This past season, Linda Lavin was celebrated with a Tony and Drama Desk nomination for her performance in The Lyons at the Cort Theater. Last year, she earned raves as the alcoholic aunt in Jon Robin Baitz's Off-Broadway hit Other Desert Cities, then went on to belt the show stopping tune "Broadway Baby" in the Kennedy Center's production of Follies. New York audiences have seen Lavin in The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Gypsy, The Diary of Anne Frank, Collected Stories, Broadway Bound (Tony Award), Last of the Red Hot Lovers and It's a Bird ... It's a Plane ... It's Superman. Of course, the world knows her as Alice Hyatt in the long-running TV series, "Alice." Linda began her career in New York City nightclubs like The Showplace and Downstairs at the Upstairs, and has recently been performing in concert halls and cabarets across the country. A regular at Birdland, she recently released her first solo CD, Possibilities. There is a $25 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

Matters of the heart can be messy and In The Boudoir delights in making a mess. San Francisco comedienne, Summer Shapiro, returns to the New York Clown Theater Festival for her fourth time with this deceptively simple story of a young female clown's love life. Veering erratically and erotically between exactitude and befuddlement, control and rashness, beauty and broken, Shapiro plays with the consuming need to be liked and revels in the futility of such a hunger.

DC: BLUES ALLEY PRESENTS CHRIS THOMAS KING

Chris Thomas King performs at BLUES ALLEY (1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141) on Tuesday, September 11th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Chris is a New Orleans Grammy Award-winning musician and actor who is initially known for his audacious fusion of blues and hip-hop. King reached a whole new audience with his film debut in the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, not only appearing on the award-winning soundtrack, but establishing himself as a serious dramatic actor as well. King has been a determined progressive, hoping to reinvigorate the blues as a living African American art with a more contemporary approach and adamantly refusing to treat it as a museum piece whose "authentic" forms needed careful preservation. King eventually modified that approach to a certain degree, attempting to create a more explicit link between blues tradition and the general musical present. Call for cover/minimum information.
