Spring will arrive early when award-winning vocalist Marieann Meringolo brings her highly acclaimed new show You Must Believe In Spring! The Music of Michel Legrand to “The Nightclub of New York,” Feinstein's at Loews Regency (540 Park Avenue, at 61st Street) for four consecutive Sundays beginning February 26th (8:30PM) and playing through March 18th. With rehearsal launched this past week, the engagement will also help celebrate Mr. Legrand’s 80th birthday on February 24th.

You Must Believe In Spring! The Music of Michel Legrand will feature song selections with masterpiece lyrics by the multi award-winning husband and wife team Alan & Marilyn Bergman along with Norman Gimbel and Johnny Mercer. With her signature vocal style, Ms. Meringolo will bring their finest work to the stage including renditions of "The Windmills of Your Mind," Summer Me Winter Me," and "What are You Doing The Rest of Your Life."

“I have always been drawn to the music of Michael Legrand, especially the Legrand/Bergman collaboration,” stated Ms. Meringolo. “The combination of the beautiful melodies and breathtaking lyrics has always stopped me in tracks----a match made in heaven!’ she continued. An earlier version of You Must Believe In Spring! The Music of Michel Legrand was originally presented last spring and received both critical and popular praise – critics have called her voice “extraordinary, riveting, and effortless.”

The evening will feature Doyle Newmyer as Musical Director/Arranger and piano along with Boots Maleson on bass and Brian Woodruff on drums. Eric Michael Gillett will direct.
