Her London, England cabaret appearances include the Pizza On The Park in 1994 and again in 1997. In the mid- to late 90s she appeared at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, for her one-woman show, and in the debut of Enid Futterman and Michael Cohen’s song cycle, I Am Anne Frank. Marcovicci made her Australian debut at the 1998 Melbourne Arts Festival. Throughout the 90s, she appeared regularly in cabaret at New York’s Algonquin Hotel. In the early 00s, she continued to perform in cabaret and concert throughout the USA. Among new works were a collaboration with the Carolina Ballet and a Lincoln Center commission, Kurt Weill In America.
