This article presents information about various artists as of November 7, 2003. Tony-winning actress-singer Betty Buckley returning to Feinstein's at Regency where she is in triumphant residence through November 8, 2003 in her all-new show "Journey" might be at the peak of her vocal and acting prowess as of November 7, 2003. In a free-spirited set with renowned jazz pianist Kenny Werner leading an ensemble that includes Todd Reynolds, Billy Drewes, Ray Marchica and Tony Marino, her expressive vibrato soared dramatically and intensely. Julie Wilson celebrated her birthday in grand style in 2003 with an evening at Cabaret Convention devoted to her and a sold-out show at Oak Room at Algonquin co-starring Jeff Harnar that turned into a tidal wave of love and emotion.
