Singer and pianist Daryl Sherman and singer Shana Farr (pictured) will make their first St. Louis appearances next month, while vocalists Jeff Wright, Monya Fisher, Alice Kinsella and Robert Breig each will offer encore performances of shows previously staged at the Kranzberg in February.

Farr, a native of Columbia, MO, will do her show "Pure Imagination" at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 17. First performed at the NYC cabaret venue Feinstein's, the show includes classic songs from Ira Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen as well as contemporary hits by Carly Simon and Cyndi Lauper. Lennie Watts will direct, with Amanda Kirkpatrick as music director and additional accompaniment from bassist Jay Hungerford.

Sherman is known for her fifteen-year residency at NYC's Waldorf Hotel, where she played a piano formerly owned by Cole Porter, and comes to St. Louis following a month-long tour of the UK and Europe. Her show "Lounging At The Waldorf" at 8:00 p.m. Thursday, April 22 will spotlight material written Johnny Mercer, along with a few of Porter's songs. Bassist Dave Troncoso will back Sherman, with Don Wolff as MC.
