After a season of "outstanding artists, intimate settings, and unforgettable evenings", the American Songbook Series at Lincoln Center is coming to a close this Friday. Grace McLean, an artist whose music is like nothing you have ever heard at this acclaimed venue, returns to the series after opening last year's engagement to a sold out house at the David Rubenstein Atrium. This time around, Grace will play the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse joining an elite group of respected artists. There is no one more deserving of closing this historic series than Ms. Grace McLean.
With a voice that simultaneously conjures Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, and Beyoncé, McLean's unique sound resembles a one-woman Big Band orchestra. Known around New York City for rousing concerts with her band 'Grace McLean & Them Apples', Grace has also made a name for herself within the theater community. Her work in Off-Broadway's Brooklynite, Bedbugs!!!, and Sleep No More parallels her quirky personality. This fall, Grace will be reaching new highs as she makes her Broadway debut in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812. Her electrifying career has just begun and we have the pleasure of joining her for the ride. On a recent interview with musical theater podcast The Set List, Grace spoke about her unconventional witty lyrics, her upcoming Lincoln Center concert, and her process of writing a musical based on twelfth century mystic Hildegard von Bingen. You should subscribe to the The Set List here on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and Google Play Store; and listen below!
For the most unforgettable musical evening of the year, visit Grace McLean at Lincoln Center this Friday.
