NEW YORK CITY - René Marie – singer, actress, writer. Eartha Kitt – singer, actress, writer. Never before has there been a vocal performance tipping the hat to the divine Ms. Kitt and her fiery, sensual and clever interpretations of songs. With her incredible range of vocal ability, her powerful emotional resonance and strong independent streak, René is the right artist to conceive of this historic project called I Wanna Be Evil: With Love to Eartha Kitt.

This brilliantly entertaining live performance burnishes René’s reputation as the most provocative risk-taker among today’s jazz divas. Eartha Kitt’s daughter Kitt Shapiro, said: "It's wonderful that such a talented artist like René Marie has recorded the first tribute album to my mother, helping to keep her memory and spirit alive. These classic songs deserve to be heard and loved by all generations."

The live performance of I Wanna Be Evil features classic Eartha Kitt songs like “C’est Si Bon,” “Peel Me a Grape,” and “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” and lesser-known mischievous gems like “I’d Rather Be Burned As A Witch” and “I Wanna Be Evil.”

Don't miss this exciting to tribute to one of America's most renowned artists. Buy your tickets today!
