She also recently garnered rave reviews for her hilarious portrayal of Melania Trump on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The highly celebrated actress took Broadway by storm at the age of 18 and has appeared on various television shows in recent years including Nashville, The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie and CBS action drama Supergirl. Additionally, she played Elsa Schrader in NBC’s The Sound of Music LIVE. Tales from Soprano Isle will feature songs from Laura’s career along with humorous anecdotes and experiences that she has encountered on and off the stage and screen.
Multiple Tony Award-winner Christine Ebersole makes her highly anticipated return to Café Carlyle, October 11-22 with a brand new show, After The Ball. Direct from the sold out run at Chicago’s Goodman Theater of the new musical War Paint, Christine Ebersole is excited about premiering this new concert and the return to Café Carlyle. Ms. Ebersole has captivated audiences throughout her performing career, from the Broadway stage to television series and specials, films, concert and symphony appearances and recordings. Ms. Ebersole has received virtually every Off-Broadway award and her second Tony Award for Leading Actress in a Musical for her “dual role of a lifetime” as Edith Beale and Little Edie Beale in Grey Gardens.
Actress/singer Ana Gasteyer makes her Café Carlyle debut, October 25-November 5.

Best known for her incomparable work on Saturday Night Live, Gasteyer recently appeared in Fox’s hit broadcast of Grease: Live! and can currently be seen starring in Netflix’s critically acclaimed comedy series, Lady Dynamite, which was recently renewed for a second season. She will also be starring in TBS’ new comedy series, People of Earth this fall. On stage, Gasteyer appeared in last year’s Encores!

Husband-and-wife duo John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey make their annual fall pilgrimage to The Carlyle with an all-new show, November 22-December 1. They return following last year’s universally acclaimed show “My Generation.” The New York Times recently described John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey as “the supreme nightclub act of our time.”

About Café Carlyle at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel
Originally opened in 1955, Café Carlyle is New York City’s bastion of classic cabaret entertainment, a place where audiences experience exceptional performers at close range in an exceedingly elegant setting. Since composer Richard Rodgers moved in as The Carlyle’s first tenant, music has been an essential part of The Carlyle experience. No place is that more evident than in the Café Carlyle.
Café Carlyle is known for talents including Woody Allen, who regularly appears on Monday evenings to play with the Eddy Davis New Orleans jazz band. For three decades, Café Carlyle was synonymous with the legendary Bobby Short, who thrilled sell-out crowds for 36 years. His spirit lives on through the music at Café Carlyle.
Continuing the tradition of the 1930s supper club, Café Carlyle features original murals created by French artist Marcel Vertès, the Oscar-winning art director of the 1952 Moulin Rouge.
