Broadway’s newest intimate concert venue – will present the premiere of Tony Award winner Cady Huffman in Miss Peggy Lee: In Her Own Words and Music for two performances only, Monday, June 10 and Wednesday, June 12. In a brand-new show long-time collaborators Cady Huffman and Will Nunziata lovingly bring to life Miss Lee’s extraordinary journey from her humble beginnings as Norma Deloris Egstrom of Jamestown, North Dakota to becoming one of the biggest stars the music world has ever seen. Backed by a swinging four-piece band led by musical director Eugene Gwozdz, songs include “Fever,” “I Love Being Here With You,” “I Don’t Know Enough About You,” “It’s A Good Day,” “Here’s To You,” and many more.
Cady Huffman is perhaps best known for her Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award winning performance as “Ulla” in The Producers on Broadway opposite Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. This led to her unforgettable recurring role on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” where she almost became Larry David’s 10th anniversary present. This success also brought her to the Food Network’s kitchen stadium where she judged for 10 consecutive seasons on “Iron Chef America.” Cady’s other Broadway credits are her Tony-nominated performance as “Ziegfeld’s Favorite” in The Will Rogers Follies, her Outer Critics Circle Award-nominated performance as “Sylvie” in The Nance, the original productions of La Cage Aux Folles, Chicago, Steel Pier, Dame Edna: The Royal Tour, and Bob Fosse’s last original musical Big Deal. She has had several guest starring appearances on television, including recurring roles on “The Good Wife” and “Blue Bloods,” “Younger,” “Madam Secretary,” “Master of None,” “Difficult People,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Law & Order: CI,” “Law & Order: Trial By Jury,” “Frasier,” and “Mad About You.” Cady is currently nominated for an Emmy Award for her work on the digital series “After Forever,” for which she won the 2018 IAWT Award. She created and stars in her own digital series titled “Cady Did,” which will be released soon. She is directing The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Timeat Weathervane Theater this summer. @CadyHuffman CadyDid.tv
