Regina Spektor Tour Dates, Joshua Bell Duet, Musical Beauty Headed Towards Broadway

Regina Spektor will appear on Saturday Night Live debut this Saturday, October 10th She will perform her second single "Eet." Spektor has also been busy with playwright / director Tina Landau (Floyd Collins & Superior Donuts) and lyricist Michael Korie (Grey Gardens) writing a musical called Beauty.

Press info for Beauty: An expansion of Landau's 2002 acclaimed one-act play, Beauty uses the 1812 Grimm fairy tale Sleeping Beauty as a jumping off point for a contemporary and hauntingly provocative story of beauty lost and beauty found. Aimed for the 2011-12 Broadway season, Landau will write the book and direct; Spektor the music, Korie the lyrics and it will be produced by Elephant Eye Theatrical (Stuart Oken, Michael Leavitt, Five Cent Productions). This will mark the first time Spektor has co-written a song with another. Korie was nominated for the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards as lyricist for Grey Gardens.

In addition, Spektor has recorded a duet with violinist Joshua Bell for his latest album, At Home With Friends.
