Australian Singer's First N.Y. Appearance in Two Years

The young Australian singer David Campbell, who burst onto the NY scene in 1997, returns to New York for the first time in two years for an exclusive four-week engagement, Tuesday, February 26th through Saturday, March 23rd, at the prestigious THE CAFE CARLYLE (35 East 76th Street, NYC - 212-744-1600 - http://www.thecarlyle.com/cal.cfm). His new show, BACK FROM OZ, will have performances Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8:45 pm with late shows on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 10:45 pm. There is a $75.00 cover charge, no minimum. Dinner is served from 6:30 pm.

Known for his eclectic musical taste, David (along with his musical director Christopher Denny) has chosen a diverse program for this return to the New York stage. He will pay musical tribute to two of his idols: Bobby Darin and Sammy Davis, Jr. Theatre songs, including one from his recent Australian smash hit SHOUT!, will be represented as well as some Australian pop hits and songs by such composers as Carol Hall, John Bucchino and Michael Pemberton. There will also be several songs closely associated with David so as not to disappoint his diehard fans.

David Campbell, who was born in Adelaide in 1973, began working professionally in 1993. His multi-faceted career has brought him to the theatrical stage in New York ("Saturday Night" and "Babes in Arms"), London ("Hey Mr. Producer! The Musical World of Cameron Mackintosh") and Australia ("Shout!," "Les Miserables," "Guys & Dolls," and "Only Heaven Knows," among others). He has performed in concert at such venues as the Sydney Opera House (with Barbara Cook) and at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops. He has also headlined numerous cabaret venues in the United States and Australia including New York's Joe's Pub and the prestigious Rainbow & Stars. David can be heard singing the title role in the DreamWorks animated film "Joseph ... King of Dreams."

His recording credits include: "Yesterday is Now," "Taking the Wheel," "Grateful ... the Songs of John Bucchino," "Hey Mr. Producer!," "Number One Musicals," "Banana Lounge," Andrew Denton's "Musical Challenge 2," and cast recordings of "Saturday Night," "Babes in Arms," "Only Heaven Knows," "A Kid Inside," and "Shout!"
