Jenna Esposito

Jenna Esposito made her New York nightclub debut in August 2004 and has since performed shows at the Metropolitan Room, the Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Duplex and Danny's Skylight Room. According to TalkinBroadway.com, "she's got the gift - heat, heart and a touch of heaven." Her shows A Hint of Rosemary: The Songs of Rosemary Clooney, SMOOCH! and I Hate Men: Songs for the Scorned have all received critical acclaim, and her annual "All-Star Birthday Bash" is a fun-filled evening during which she has shared the stage with a number of New York's finest performers. In January 2007, I Hate Men was named one of the "12 Best Cabaret Shows" of 2006 by John Hoglund of TheaterScene.net. Jenna also writes a weekly column for the theater and arts website www.BroadwayWorld.com and hosts Metrojam, the Metropolitan Room's room popular open mic night on the first Friday of every month.

13 Men...and Me!, Jenna's debut CD, showcases her silky, wide-ranging voice and stylistic versatility with well-loved standards such as "Just In Time" and "Down With Love," pop hits including "One Less Bell To Answer" and "Since I Fell For You," as well as contemporary jazz/pop songs. The album also features the debut of a brand new jazz/swing number, "Remembering September In July." Her second CD "To Connie, Love Jenna - Jenna Esposito Sings Connie Francis," is the world's first-ever tribute CD to one of the most beloved and best-selling female vocalists of the 20th Century. Recorded live in concert in New York City at the Metropolitan Room, this personal homage features exciting new versions of Connie's legendary hits like "Stupid Cupid," "Lipstick On Your Collar" and "Where The Boys Are," but also lesser-known songs like "My First Real Love" - inspired by her hidden romance with fellow teen idol Bobby Darin - the rousing rockers "Are You Satisfied?" and "Send For My Baby"; and the beautiful ballad "Roundabout." Jenna's versions of these rarely heard numbers are the only ones available in digital format or domestically on CD. She also included several selections ("Al Di La," "Tango Della Gelosia") from Connie's landmark Italian albums.

Jenna's New York theater credits include Little Mary Sunshine, Godspell (Wings Theatre), How I Learned To Draw (Cornelia St. Café), A Sheep and Bad Girls by Joyce Carol Oates, as well as Twelfth Night in London. Her regional credits include Anything Goes, West Side Story, Sleeping Beauty and Guys and Dolls. Jenna graduated from Sarah Lawrence College. For more information, please visit JennaEsposito.com.
