From “Landslide” to 35mm, Betsy Wolfe Offers a Glimpse Into Her Fun, Personal Concert All Bets Are Off
By Josh Ferri, BroadwayBox
Betsy Wolfe makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in March with her first cabaret show All Bets Are Off, and it’s sure to be the best part of 2019 so far. One of our favorite Broadway voices will belt the roof off the joint March 6-9, just as she has done in Broadway’s Waitress, Bullets Over Broadway, Falsettos, Everyday Rapture and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. And lord knows, her performance as Cathy in NYC’s The Last Five Years revival was nothing short of epic.
On March 7, Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan joins Betsy onstage, and the two-drink minimum better include an inhaler and oxygen because there’s no surviving those voices together.
BroadwayBox caught up with Betsy to get a sense of what fans can expect to hear during her highly-anticipated solo debut.
1. What was the song you knew had to be in the set list when you conceived the show?
I debuted the show in San Francisco. It was my little out of town tryout, if you will. There was one song I didn’t even think about until the very last minute. I was like, “Oh my god, I have to sing ‘Landslide’!” It is one of my all-time favorite songs. It’s Stevie Nicks, not a musical theatre song, and I wanted to put my own spin on it. The show is fast and furious and (I’d like to think) funny so to have a moment that can sit and resonate makes it really powerful.
