The songs of Rodgers and Hart are at the very core of the Great American Song Book and it is no surprise that Lorenz Hart's remarkable lyrics earned him the well-deserved right to be called "the Poet of Broadway." Stefanie Powers celebrates those lyrics in an evening of song and anecdotal stories that work to frame the music in a context that gives new meaning to those familiar songs. Hart of My Heart is an intimate tribute to a man whose tortured personal life was overshadowed by his legacy of words to music that ranks him among the greatest. This one-woman show earned New York critics acclaim when she performed it at Feinstein's at the Regency Hotel.
Stefanie began her career at age 15, dancing briefly for famed choreographer Jerome Robbins. While under contract to Columbia pictures she appeared in 15 motion pictures before landing her first television role in the The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. Later she played opposite Robert Wagner in the long running series Hart to Hart. Stefanie has also continued playing roles in musical theater in both the West End and on Broadway, including appearances in The King and I and Sunset Boulevard.
