Celebrated by the NY Times as having "a sweet, strong, supple voice", Melanie Kraut has headlined the legendary Capitol Theatre, sung opera on national television, starred in a new musical with Ellen Foley (Night Court, Paradise By The Dashboard Light), guest starred on primetime TV with Robin Williams, and opened for Eric Clapton to 8,000 people. Her passion for life and music is contagious and electrifying on stage. Join Melanie and some very special guest artists and friends for this soul satiating evening of music as she shares her intensely personal musical journey with you. Stories and songs ranging from her time on NY stages to LA sets, to her fascination with leather pants and The Rolling Stones, to the trials and tribulations of raising three active kids!
