Photo Coverage: Maye and Stritch at the Metropolitan Room

​

On Sunday, April 1st, jazz legend Marilyn Maye and Billy Stritch ended their SRO run at the Metropolitan Room.  The house was packed with stars - many returning for their second and third time during Maye's two-week run.

The audience included Christine Ebersole, Mary Kay Place, Susie Essman, Charles Busch, Barbara Cook, Harvey Evans, Devin Richards, James Lipton and Klea Blackhurst, among others.  The engagement was so successful there's already talk of a return engagement in the works.

Maye, whose recording of "Too Late Now" was chosen by the Smithsonian Collection of recordings as one of the 110 best songs and recordings of the first six decades of the 20th Century, has recorded seven albums and 34 singles.  Stritch, who accompanied her, is a pianist and singer whose albums include "Billy Stritch," "Waters of March," "Jazz Live," and "In Your Dreams" (the latter with Ebersole).
