Linhardt is a Los Angeles native who was raised in Europe and has traveled and performed on three continents. She has appeared at the MET before in Consanguinity and has often collaborated with Cirque Du Soleil acrobats and Ringling Brothers clowns. Venues at which she has sung include the Magic Castle, Keyclub, Cinegrill, LACMA and Wilshire Ebell.

"Back in February I was hired to open a concert hall in Germany with my own act, Classics to Cabaret, which is similar to what Nick and I will be doing," Linhardt said. "Marlene Dietrich songs, a little Kurt Weill, the Schoenberg Brett-Lieder, and so on, and not just in straight concert style, but a little more staged."

Robert Schenkkan's LEWIS AND CLARK REACH THE EUPHRATES will open Dec. 11 at the Mark Taper Forum for a six-week run. The play exhibits the playwright's own brand of historical pageantry starring the famous explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Acting on a directive from President Thomas Jefferson to find a water route to the Pacific Ocean, they embark on a fantastical journey with time- and space-bending twists and turns. Somewhere between charting the land west of the Mississippi, trying to broker peace between the warring tribes and spreading the gospel of the American Dream, Lewis and Clark find themselves hurtling down white-water rapids into the fray of several other American crusades, including the charge up San Juan Hill to liberate Cuba in 1898 and the Vietnam War in 1963.

Mark Taper Forum, 135 N. Grand Ave. Call (213) 628-2772 or visit For Hot Tix call (213) 628-2772.
