Melissa Errico

Amour & After

 

“Melissa Errico is, and will continue to be, the premier interpreter of the musical legacy of Michel Legrand” a dazzled critic wrote this year. The only American artist invited to perform at Legrand’s great memorial in Paris in April 2019 – and The New York Times’ choice to write his eulogy -- now, with  “Amour and After”, Melissa  offers a full length concert of his music that also traces and celebrates France and French song in all its many moods and faces. She’ll sing  all the classic Legrand – from “Watch What Happens” to “Windmills of Your Mind” -- but also  the music of Charles Trenet, Cole Porter in Paris, and even Sondheim painting in Seurat’s Sunday Park. “I decided to call this show “Amour & After” for two reasons, “ she confides. ” First, because that was the title of the show of Michel’s that I starred in and got a Tony nomination for -- “Amour”, the only Broadway musical he ever wrote. But I also call it ‘Amour & After’ because that’s the great subject of French songs: ‘Amour’ – love! -- and everything that comes after:pain and bitterness and heartbreak and longing. And why all that pain always makes us only…wish for more amour.” Come and spend a night in Paris, and maybe share a French kiss with your amour, in the company of America’s finest interpreter of French songs.   "Errico is like a glass of Veuve Cliquot: effervescent and intoxicating and always beautiful." - BroadwayWorld.
