Nellie McKay at the Kranzberg Arts Center, November 18 and 19

Here's a unique show coming to town: Piano chanteuse Nellie McKay is performing for two nights at the Kranzberg Arts Center in November, the 18th and 19th. Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the door. McKay attempted to achieve crossover success with her 2004 double-disc debut, Get Away from Me, but in recent years she's been content to focus on cabaret and Broadway tunes instead. In fact, her forthcoming album is a tribute to Doris Day, called Normal As Blueberry Pie - A Tribute To Doris Day.
