Andrea Marcovicci brings her acclaimed Johnny Mercer show to the Rrazz Room
By Bruce Bellingham

Andrea Marcovicci, a longtime San Francisco favorite, is bringing her tribute to composer Johnny Mercer to the Rrazz Room on Jan. 19–31. It’s called Skylark: Marcovicci Sings Mercer.
Her review was a big hit at New York’s Algonquin Hotel over the holidays. It was a six-week sell-out. The New York Times’s Stephen Holden, who can be dyspeptic and disagreeable, was  completely charmed. He wrote that Marcovicci “worked her wiles as a show-business medium channeling Olympian spirits with emotional intensity.”
The Savannah Music Festival originally commissioned Skylark in Mercer’s hometown, where Marcovicci’s show was a great success. She manages to weave all sorts of stories about the composer into her selection of well-known and not-so-well-known songs, co-written with geniuses of the Great American Songbook, such as Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Arlen, Henry Mancini, Harry Warren, Jerome Kern, and Jimmy Van Heusen. Marcovicci includes “Moon River,” “Autumn Leaves,” “One More for My Baby (and One More for the Road),” and “That Old Black Magic.”
Skylark: Marcovicci Sings Mercer
: Rrazz Room (at the Hotel Nikko), 222 Mason Street (at O’Farrell). Jan. 19–24, Tuesday through Saturday 7 p.m., Sunday 5 p.m.; Jan. 26–31, Tuesday through Thursday & Saturday 8 p.m., Friday 7 p.m., Sunday 5 p.m. Tickets $35–$45 at  866-468-3399 or
