Upcoming Suzanne Petri Events:
Dear Friends, We have two very exciting shows
coming up this June!
We are preparing for our New York performance of our Noel Coward Tribute, A Little Touch of Coward in the Night at the Metropolitan Room, so make your reservations for June 21st. For reservations call 212.206.0440.
Late breaking news: Suzy and Bob Moreen will be performing for Katerina's Swan Song on June 28th! We are so sad to see Katerina close the doors at the end of June, but so grateful that we have had so many fabulous shows there! Thank you Katerina, for sharing the music, the soul and the love!!
AND, fittingly, Bob will be a Lunt-Fontanne Fellow at Ten Chimneys with top actors from around the country and our old friend from Minneapolis, David Hyde Pierce, leading the pack…the actor pack...Of course he will spend time in the Noel Coward cottage and music room!
Please make your reservations now for the Metropolitan Room...and pass along to any Coward/Breuler/Petri/Moreen/Eskola lovers in your circle of friends and family!
A night of song, story and scenes celebrating the life and legacy of Sir Noël Coward by four Chicago cabaret and theatre favorites. Get underneath the music and behind the scenes of the man known as The Master as the ensemble re-imagine beloved scenes and songs, including "Why do the Wrong People Travel?" "I've Been to a Marvelous Party," "If Love Were All," "Mad About the Boy," "Mrs. Worthington," "Ziguener," "Nina," and "Matelot."
Starring Chicago's acclaimed Jefferson Award nominated actress, winner of the After Dark Award for Outstanding Cabaret Artist and the Chicago Cabaret Professionals' Gold Coast Award, Suzanne Petri; Jefferson Award winner and Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member Robert Breuler; After Dark Award and Lifetime Achievement Award winner Bob Moreen and Danny Boy Sing-Off winner and Helen & Tim Meier Achievement Award honoree John Eskola.
“Suzanne Petri happens to be the exception that proves the rule, her work at once dramatically penetrating and musically evocative… superb singer John Eskola, veteran pianist-vocalist Bob Moreen and formidable actor-narrator Robert Breuler. Together, these artists interchangeably performed…the evening sketched the arc of Coward's career. Indeed, it would be difficult to imagine many American artists who could get closer to the British tone and style of this work than Petri and friends.”

"What a gift this is — a chance to retreat and recharge, to connect with and learn from a diverse group of accomplished actors, and to remind ourselves, through Alfred and Lynn, of the theatrical lineage we all share."
