“This show is my love letter to New York and a tribute to everyone who lives here,” Ms. Swindal explained. “It is an expression of my gratitude, of my sorrow, and – above all else – my hope for a brighter tomorrow. The theatrical community here has become my family, and no one has been more steadfast in our time of need than The Actors Fund. It is my honor and privilege to have this chance to contribute to the cause.”
In a world in need of healing and hope, kick off 2021 with this entertaining and inspiring concert event that will remind you of your favorite New York memories, and allow you to imagine returning to the “city that never sleeps” as soon as we all are able. Directed by award-winning director Will Nunziata, with musical direction and arrangements by Scott Cady, Haley reinvents classics both old and new including, “New York State of Mind,” “Happy Days Are Here Again,” “To Make You Feel My Love,” “It Had to Be You,” “Moon River,” and many more, including an original song written by Swindal herself.
“Haley Swindal embodies, perfectly, the spirit and era of Ed Sullivan, the Las Vegas acts of Ann-Margret, Marlene Dietrich and Raquel Welch, and the variety shows of Julie Andrews and Judy Garland.”
