Zack Zadek to Perform the Songs of Katy Perry at Don't Tell Mama, 8/29
Award-winning musical theater writer Zack Zadek has performed Katy Perry covers as part of evenings of his work at The Laurie Beechman Theater, Joe's Pub, and The Highline Ballroom. Those covers have accrued over 10,000 combined views on YouTube. Now, audiences are invited to join Zadek for an high-octane evening devoted solely to the songs of his own personal "teenage dream," millennial pop princess Katy Perry. The 9:30pm concert will be directed by Don't Tell Mama's Associate Director of Programming, Max Friedman.
Long Island born composer/lyricist and singer/songwriter Zack Zadek has played at the Highline Ballroom, Joe's Pub, 54 Below, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Galapagos Art Space, and as part of "In The Valley: The Songs of Zack Zadek" at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. Zack's musical 6, an intimate telling of six New Yorkers who, by six degrees of separation, unknowingly change each other's lives, was selected by the 2012 New York Musical Theatre Festival and more recently played to sold out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In addition to writing and performing new musical theatre, Zack is an active solo artist who has banged on pianos across New York, fusing pop and storytelling in unique ways. His current projects include The Crazy Ones, a new musical about Steve Jobs and Apple, Inc., The Party In My Mind, a new immersive dance song cycle, and upcoming solo EP. Zack is a proud member of ASCAP and the Dramatist's Guild of America. Follow him @zackzadek!
