Photo Coverage: Marilyn Maye Continues Run at The Metropolitan Room

It's a New Year's tradition that doesn't get old. For the third year in a row Marilyn Maye brings back her exciting "By Request" format for a week of raucous revelry after ringing out 2013 with back-to-back shows on New Year's Eve. Maye's remarkable performances will be accompanied by pianist/conductor Billy Stritch, bassist Tom Hubbard, and drummer Ray Marchica. The party doesn't stop until Sunday January 12. Check out more photos from the concert below!

Marilyn creates "The Biggest Party EVER." (Music charges are $50 per person for the early show, and $154.99 per person, open bar-inclusive, for the late show.) After New Year's Eve, the merry-making continues, for seven nights between January 3 and 12, with a hard-to-resist music charge of only $30 per person. "Marilyn by Request" plays Fri to Sun January 3, 4 and 5; Wed & Thurs January 8 & 9, and Sat & Sun January 11 & 12. All shows are at 7pm.

Maye is in the midst of one of the most exciting chapters of a storied career. A nightclub mainstay, RCA recording artist and musical theatre actress in the '60s, '70s, and '80s, the "Best New Artist" Grammy nominee (1965) returned to New York in October 2006 after a 15-year absence. At the invitation of the late Donald Smith her epochal Cabaret Convention appearance segued into an unbroken string of sold-out runs at the Metropolitan Room through 2010. It is here that Maye built a new following, introducing an entirely new generation to the fun-loving performance style that once was the hallmark of large rooms and nightclubs across the country. This is Ms. Maye's 14th Metropolitan Room engagement.
