30 Rock's Jane Krakowski to perform at Casey House Snowball Gala

SnowBall 2010 "Some Like it Haute!" happens March 6 at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Casey House today announced that Tony Award-winning Broadway, TV and film star Jane Krakowski will perform at SnowBall 2010 - "Some Like it Haute!" presented by BMO Financial Group and the Bay. The annual signature fundraising gala for Casey House takes place March 6 at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. This will be Krakowski's debut Toronto singing performance.

Fans of television's "30 Rock" know Krakowski as Jenna Maroney on the hit Emmy Award-winning series. Krakowski also gained a fan following for her five-year stretch on the Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG award-winning series "Ally McBeal." A veteran of the stage, Krakowski won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics awards for her performance in the Broadway revival of "Nine" (2003) opposite Antonio Banderas, and recently received Britain's Laurence Olivier Award for her role opposite Ewan McGregor in "Guys and Dolls."

With her indelible stamp on tunes popularized by performers including Eartha Kitt, Mae West and Ethel Waters, Krakowski's performance will include material from her critically lauded one-woman Manhattan cabaret show, recently recorded as her first solo CD. "...Krakowski lands every nuance." - Variety, "...immensely entertaining" - Theatermania, "No plain Jane." - New York Daily News, "She sparkled." - Washington Post.

This year's SnowBall Co-Chairs are style and publishing icon Suzanne Boyd, Editor-in-Chief, Zoomer Magazine, and renowned Canadian fashion designer Wayne Clark. Expect an evening of distinction, elegance, fun and sexiness - a dizzying fashionista romp that is exquisitely haute, but never haughty.
