Stephen Hanks Presents New York Cabaret's Greatest Hits

Jenna Esposito Sings Connie Francis
Singer/Actress Jenna Esposito made her New York nightclub debut in 2004, and has been delighting audiences across the country ever since. Esposito is perhaps best known for her tribute to iconic pop singer Connie Francis—Jenna Esposito Sings Connie Francis—a show that has been a smash hit among audiences and critics since it debuted in 2009. Connie Francis herself has praised Jenna’s work, raving, “I’ve known and loved Jenna for years and love the way she sings. I’m so grateful for the love and respect she shows to the catalog of songs that has been so good to me through the years." 

Esposito’s performances of the Connie Francis songbook earned her 2010 MAC Award Nominations for “Best Female Vocalist” (she had also been nominated for the same award the year before) and for “Best CD Release” for the album based on the show, To Connie, Love Jenna. Now Esposito will be reprising her critically acclaimed show to launch the 2017 season of the Award-Nominated series NEW YORK CABARET’S GREATEST HITS at the Metropolitan Room on February 13 at 7 pm. Jenna’s Musical Director/Guitarist is her father Fortune Esposito, with David Crone on piano, Rob Broelmann on bass, Frank Petrocelli on sax, Scott Morehouse on drums, and Kelly Esposito-Broelmann and Rob Langeder providing backup vocals. The series is produced and hosted by Stephen Hanks (with Associate Producer Fr. Jeffrey Hamblin, MD).
“I'm so honored to have been invited to do my Connie Francis show as a part of Stephen Hanks’ fantastic series,” Esposito says. “It's a show very near and dear to my heart, and I can't wait to share it with a New York audience after a seven-year hiatus.”
Here’s what critics said about Jenna Esposito Sings Connie Francis:
“Esposito has a blockbuster belt that adds combustion to many of Francis’ recordings . . . If heart and soul, and some impressive vocal chops is your thing, this is your show. --Cabaret Scenes Magazine
“Ms. Esposito’s infectious, heartfelt ode to chart-topping songstress Connie Francis scores on many levels. Not only as a sincere homage to her idol, but also as a testament to her right-on renditions of these oh-so-famous tunes. While never resorting to out-and-out imitation, she manages to capture the magic of Ms. Francis, with just the right touch of her own particular style.” –-Nitelife Exchange
“The show combines the best of a rock concert with the intelligence, elegance, and detail one expects from the best cabaret.” –
Jenna Esposito has headlined at Birdland, Feinstein’s at Loews Regency, The Metropolitan Room, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Duplex, and NYC’s historic Friars Club. In 2013, Jenna performed at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom, where she was the opening act and duet partner for multi-platinum recording artist, Patrizio Buanne, and in 2011, she made her debut at Manhattan’s historic Town Hall, sharing the stage with Liza Minnelli, Chita Rivera, Lucie Arnaz, Larry Gatlin, and Marilyn Maye. Dubbed “The Voice of Little Italy,” Jenna has performed many solo shows at the famed San Gennaro Festival, and she has also made several appearances in Manhattan’s Columbus Day Parade. Jenna recently released her third CD, That’s Amore: Songs From The Great Italian-American Songbook, and she can currently be heard every Wednesday evening from 9pm-Midnight at Manhattan’s La Rivista restaurant.
