TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Bay Area Cabaret Announces “An Evening with Carmen Cusack & Susan Werner”

Jan 11, 2019
Bay Area Cabaret kicks off the new year welcoming back Tony-nominated Broadway star Carmen Cusack on Sunday, January 20 at 5:00 p.m. Ms. Cusack returns to the Venetian Room at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco with an evening celebrating her favorite songs and the artists behind them including singer/songwriters past and present like Joni Mitchell, Dolly Parton, Kate Bush and Kimbra, plus she’ll offer a sampling of original tunes and Broadway selections.

The evening will also showcase the versatile talents of singer/songwriter Susan Werner in whose Broadway-bound musical “Bull Durham” Cusack is expected to star. Susan Werner is hailed as one of the most innovative songwriters working today. Her fearless stage presence and dazzling musicianship have earned her a passionate following coast to coast. She is best known for her concept albums, including the music of 2007’s “The Gospel Truth” and her 2013 tribute to her Iowa farm roots, “Hayseed.”

Bay Area audiences will remember Ms. Cusack’s 2016 Bay Area Cabaret debut and her masterful work at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre, where she recreated her Tony-nominated performance in Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s bluegrass musical “Bright Star,” also receiving nominations for Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Drama League, Helen Hayes and Theatre World Awards. She is currently seen in a recurring role in the new Facebook Watch series, “Sorry for Your Loss,” and will star opposite Tom Hanks in the currently untitled Fred Rogers film playing the producer of Rogers’ daily children’s TV show.

Tickets to “An Evening with Carmen Cusack & Susan Werner” are $65/$55 for subscribers with no food or drink minimum required. Information and tickets are available at www.bayareacabaret.org or by phone at City Box Office (415) 392-4400.
