The new additions to the Royal Room cabaret schedule include:

March 18-22
Tom Wopat
Back By Popular Demand
All it takes is a phrase or two from Tom Wopat's warm, engaging baritone to trigger the desire to hear more. And the more one listens, the better it gets -- from the way he finds the heart of a song’s story to his lyrical phrasing and his gently swinging, jazz-infused rhythms.

Reviews of Top Wopat:
+ Stephen Holden in The New York Times:“Because both Top Wopat and Frank Sinatra are saloon singers who imprint their personalities on everything they perform, they are kindred spirits… What he shares with Sinatra is an ability to live inside whatever he sings.”

+ Backstage: “Throughout the show, (Wopat) gets to display his obvious flair for jazzy swing tunes, evoking Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.”

+  Theatermania.com:
Cost to Attend Tom Wopat:
+ Tuesday through Thursday:  $125 for prix fixe dinner & show; $70 for show only.
+ Friday & Saturday: $135 for prix fixe dinner & show; $80 for show only.

March 25-29
Judy Collins
Royal Room Debut
Legendary singer Judy Collins has been a concert headliner since her first hit “Both Sides Now” back in 1967.

Reviews of Judy Collins:
+ Stephen Holden in The New York Times: "Judy Collins, that ageless wild angel of pop, has many faces, all of them magnificently on display (in concert)…  (She is an) ethereal, vibratoless soprano, whose sound evokes a shaft of moonlight on a clear night providing silver-blue illumination, In such enchanted light, the spirits come out to dance.”

+  Theatermania.com: “Few performers seem as truly comfortable on stage, or can make an audience feel as comfortable as (Judy) Collins does… Her ability to spread love throughout a room remains a wonder to behold.”

+ Troy Times-Union: "Her crystalline soprano voice sparkled and shimmered as she stood center stage, her silver-white hair cascading down the back of her black velvet jacket as she gently strummed her 12-string guitar.”

+ ReadingEagle.com: Judy Collins “is as timeless as the songs she sings.”

Cost to Attend Judy Collins:

+ Tuesday through Thursday:  $130 for prix fixe dinner & show.
+ Friday & Saturday: $140 for prix fixe dinner & show.

April 1-5 & 8-12:
Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.
Reviews of Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.:
+ The New York Times: “Ms. McCoo and Mr. Davis, now both in their mid 60s, are the most famous alumni of the Fifth Dimension, the group that homogenized pop and rock strains into cheerful, polished lounge music that made grown-ups feel comfortably groovy… Both are still strong singers.”

+ Cabaret Scenes: “After forty years in the music biz and thirty-nine years of married life together, these 2/5ths of the original “Fifth Dimension” are still struttin’ their stuff.
Cost to Attend Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr.:

+ Tuesday through Thursday:  $130 for prix fixe dinner & show; $65 for show only.
+ Friday & Saturday: $140 for prix fixe dinner & show; $75 for show only.

April 15-19
Bill Charlap & Sandy Stewart
Back By Popular Demand
Jazz pianist Bill Charlap comes from a strong musical background. His mother and frequent performing partner Sandy Stewart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Stewart_%28singer%29) is a popular singer who had a hit in 1962 with "My Coloring Book (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Coloring_Book).” He has recorded seven albums as a leader or co-leader for the Blue Note (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Note_Records) label, including two Grammy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammy_Awards)-nominated CDs, and appears at least twice a year for lengthy runs at some of the world's major jazz clubs, including the Village Vanguard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Village_Vanguard). This is Bill Charlap and Sandy Stewart’s first engagement at The Colony Hotel Royal Room since 2005.

Reviews of Bill Charlap & Sandy Stewart:
+ Stephen Holden in The New York Times: “The singer Sandy Stewart imparts rock-bottom truths in a warm, humming voice that rarely rises above the level of an intimate conversation. The half-smile that flickers on her lips implies a profound wisdom about the things that really matter when you’re a certain age (Ms. Stewart is 75), most of all time and memory. She might be described as a pop-jazz Mona Lisa… While Ms. Stewart’s phrasing with its careful hesitations and emphases on key words maintains a serene facade, Mr. Charlap’s volatile pianism reflects the turmoil below the surface in abrupt changes of rhythm and mood. You might describe his playing as recreating the events that his mother is conjuring.”

Cost to Attend Bill Charlap & Sandy Stewart:
+ Tuesday through Saturday: $120 for prix fixe dinner & show; $60 for show only.
