Brooke Shields, Renaissance Woman, to Open Show at Cafe Carlyle Right After Labor Day


Brooke Shields can do anything. She’s had books, a documentary, TV shows. She was a model, is an actress. And everyone likes her, which is unique in the celebrity world.

Now Brooke, a Princeton graduate, will bring a one woman show to New York’s esteemed Cafe Carlyle from September 12th to the 23rd. The show is called “Previously Owned by Brooke Shields.” It’s directed by Nate Patten and co-written by Patten and Brooke. Music direction and arrangements are by Charlie Alterman. Special material comes from Matthew Sklar and Amanda Green. 

Brooke can sing, so I’m curious to see how she mixes original songs with older ones, which ones she chooses. She’ll be a knockout!
