Al Sapienza and Deborah Rennard come to grace The Venu with their breathtaking and story-telling musical performance!
Performing to sold out shows in NY, Florida and Las Vegas, Al Sapienza of “SOPRANOS” fame, and Deborah Rennard from CBS’s “DALLAS,” sing the songs that shaped their lives and careers, and share the “stories” of how they navigated their way through the entertainment industry to get where they are today. The result is an autobiographical journey including songs from BEATLES to BROADWAY, STREISAND to SINATRA, NEIL DIAMOND to SIMON AND GARFUNKLE and more. With the Joey Melotti quartet, they celebrate the power of music and pay tribute to the artists and songs that have inspired their lives and careers.
