The Riviera Theatre presents Maureen McGovern, “A Long & Winding Road,” at the venue on Friday, March 20, 2020. The show begins at 8 p.m. p.m. at 67 Webster St., North Tonawanda.

McGovern, celebrated as “The Stradivarius Voice,” marks her 46th anniversary of her No. 1 Oscar-winning International gold record, “The Morning After,” which garnered her a Grammy nomination in 1973 for “Best New Artist.” McGovern received her second Grammy nomination in 1998 for “Best Traditional Pop Vocal” for her solo piano/voice album, “The Pleasure Of His Company,” with Grammy Award-winning Mike Renzi.

Other McGovern hits include “Can You Read My Mind?” from “Superman,” the Oscar-winning “We May Never Love Like This Again” from “The Towering Inferno,” and “Different Worlds” from the TV series “Angie.” Her many other critically acclaimed recordings include tributes to George Gershwin, Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Harold Arlen and Richard Rogers.

In 2005, McGovern was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her role as Marmee in “Little Women, The Musical” on Broadway. In 1981, she made her Broadway debut as Mabel in “The Pirates of Penzance,” then went on to star as Luisa in “Nine” with Raul Julia, and as Polly Beachum in “Three Penny Opera” with Sting.
