Jessica Fishenfeld in “Sunny Side Up” in the Theater

May 25 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Don’t miss Jessica Fishenfeld’s Birdland debut on Thursday, May 25th at 8:30pm!

Award-winning vocalist and actor Jessica Fishenfeld, known for her “cristalline and pure voice” and “spot-on comedic timing” is a natural optimist in a rough-and-tumble town. Since she firmly believes that the only way to schlep through life is with a shameless cackle and a joyful noise, she wants to spread the sunny vibes to anyone who will listen. With a springtime sprinkle of jazz, cabaret, and musical theater tunes, you’ll be sure to forget all your troubles and get happy!

Joined by pianist/music director Matthew Sheens and Sam Zerna on bass, you’ll be gifted a bouquet of toe-tapping classics and new favorites from Gershwin, Rogers & Hammerstein, John Bucchino, Ann Hampton Callaway, and more!

Jessica Fishenfeld recently put a bizarre combination of skills to the test when she was featured on America’s Got Talent as an opera-singing aerialist. She “triumphed” (NY Observer) in New York City Opera’s World Premiere of Stonewall, with “clean coloratura,” (Opera News) and “spunky personality” (Opera Wire), made a “stand out” (New York Times) off-Broadway debut in Das Barbecü, and appeared in the series premiere of Sony Pictures’ Panhandle. She recently released her debut EP The Nothing Lamp with Crossover Records, as well as several singles available on all streaming platforms. She produced and performed in Grateful: The Songs of John Bucchino, 20th Anniversary Concert, “one of the slickest, best-produced virtual concerts to come out of the last ten months” (Broadway World), earning her accolades as “a new favorite” and “a revelation” (Broadway World) alongside Stephen Schwartz, Leslie Odom Jr., Toni Tennille, Ann Hampton Callaway, and other Broadway and Cabaret legends. Fishenfeld holds Semi-Finalist prizes in the 2021 American Traditions Competition and 2019 Lotte Lenya Competition. Additional soloist appearances include national and international venues such as Carnegie Hall, Circle in the Square, National Sawdust, Palm Beach Opera, Helena Symphony, Hartford Symphony, St. Bart’s Music Festival, Orquesta Filarmonía de Xalapa, Festival de Órgano de Morelia, Palazzo Vecchio, Minton’s Playhouse, and more.
