Buckley is a genuinely eccentric, eccentrically genuine Broadway diva, with a persona that shifts between fragility and imperiousness. In recent years, she's moved away from the big belting of shows like Cats and Sunset Boulevard, favoring more monologue-like songs and arrangements. Her latest Joe's Pub set celebrates the release of her 18th album, Hope, and includes songs by Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Jason Robert Brown.
