Tonight and Friday at 10:45 PM, Yanna Avis plays the last of her shows this month in the Café Carlyle’s Second Act series of late night performances. The lanky Paris-born chanteuse, best-known to New Yorkers, perhaps, as the widow of Warren Avis of the rent-a-car Avises, tries harder even though she really doesn’t have to. Her sporadic performances around New York have attracted a loyal fan base of stars and sophisticates, including Liza Minnelli and Rex Reed (shown with Avis at a performance earlier this month). They’re lured in by her smokey vocalizations of great cabaret tunes by the likes of Cole Porter, Kurt Weill, Michel Legrand, Cy Coleman and more.

Tickets are $25 tonight and $30 tomorrow (Friday), with a $25 food and beverage

minimum. For reservations, call: 212.744.1600.
