Ann Kittredge: Movie Night with Alex Rybeck and Sean Harkness
October 10 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Ann Kittredge is an award-winning performer who has worked on Broadway and off and at major venues across the country with top producers and directors throughout her career. She is a recipient of the MAC award for her cabaret show, One Night Only at Feinstein’s/54 Below, her Evening of Ahrens & Flaherty has garnered rave reviews, and she has become a regular in the major NYC cabaret venues. Ann is working on her album, Reimagine, a compilation of her favorite arrangements created in collaboration with music directors Wendy Cavett, Christopher Denny & Alex Rybeck over the past several years. She produces and hosts the critically-acclaimed online program, Virtual Shorts, inspired by the isolation of the pandemic and eagerness for live, collaborative performance. Offstage, Ann’s favorite pastime involves chains, leather and sand (sure, ask her about it). She volunteered for many years as a child education advocate and currently sits on the American Songbook Association Executive Board, an organization that provides cabaret workshops to underprivileged NYC public school students. She is also an active member of Soka Gakkai International, a Buddhist NGO of the United Nations.
Movie Nite highlights Ann’s favorite songs from the movies and draws on the breadth of movie music beginning in 1927 to today. The show includes a stunning folk-opera rendition of the classic “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life” as well as a vivid reimagining of the opening number from the 2016 movie, “La La Land.” From the greatest composers of the golden age of movies to today, Ann brings passion, energy, and her unique story-telling to you and shares her journey of the heart with songs introduced by such luminous talents as Carly Simon, Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, and Doris Day. Alex Rybeck music directs the show masterfully. Alex and Ann welcome multi-award winning guitarist Sean Harkness to the show.
