Ali is returning to the internationally acclaimed Metropolitan Room in NYC with her Cabaret show 'Down Under Diva'.
She teams up again with some of NYC's finest musicians: Musical Director & pianist Alex Rybeck, Sean Harkness on guitar, Jered Egan on bass and Rex Benincasa on drums, and will be directed by Lina Koutrakos.
This Diva from Down Under has starred in the hit musicals Mamma Mia, Blood Brothers, Evita, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls and The Sound of Music. Ali was awarded Actress of the Year for her performance in Joanna Murray Smith’s one woman play Bombshells which she will be performing on 42nd Street as part of the United Solo Festival in October.
“Ms Harper lets fly with a truly knock-out performance…. She has the audience at her feet and many rightly rise to their feet, cheering at the end.”
Last year Ali released her second album 'Naughty and Nice' which showcases her versatility... Doris Day, Cy Coleman, Jacques Brel, Fleetwood Mac and a highlight 'The Shadow of your Smile' arranged by New York award winning Musical Director, Alex Rybeck.
DOWN UNDER DIVA! is a glorious fun filled and sweetly nostalgic show which features some of New York's finest musicians; Musical Director & pianist Alex Rybeck, Sean Harkness on guitar, Jered Egan on bass and Rex Benincasa on drums. Directed by Lina Koutrakos
“Ali Harper is an outstanding singer by any standards and would not be out of place on Broadway or in the Albert Hall.”
