Julie Halston in “Classical Julie” at Birdland NYC Jazz Club

“Classical Julie,” which debuted one year ago, was such a smashing success that Birdland invited Ms. Halston back for amonth-long run of Mondays. The run was a sell-out, and a critical hit!

As before, the show combines classic Halston rants with brand new material, including her inimitable take on Ibsen and other highly literate writers.

Julie Halston is one of the theatre’s busiest and most well-known actresses.  Classically speaking, she just returned from a month-long stint at The Kennedy Center in a production of The Guardsmen, by Molnár.  She recently appeared in the Tony-Award winning Broadway musical, Anything Goes as the hilarious Evangeline Harcourt.

In New York, her solo shows have been extended five times at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club due to her popularity.   If not busy enough, she co-authored (with Donna Daley) the book, “Monologues for Show-Offs,” which is now being used by colleges, casting agents and performers for audition material in all media. They are currently adapting their success with this book into a play.
