It's one thing to be able to act and sing like Brian Stokes Mitchell, but in addition, there is a whole other level of musicianship Brian possesses that enabled him to conceive and create his opening number, 'There's No Business Like Show Business'.  As 'Stokes' pointed out, his musical mind is in sync with his brilliant music director, Tedd Firth.  The two of them have produced an arrangement of this Irving Berlin standard that takes you on a roller coaster ride of meter and key changes.  A little bit of math proficiency was also probably needed because the Stokes/Firth arrangement starts off as a ballad and then weaves it's way through a variety of tempos which include 7/8 & 5/4. It certainly was indicative of the title of his cabaret show, 'Playing With Music.'   (more...)

If you know Haley Swindal's pedigree you will understand why I will refrain from commenting that her show 'knocked it out of the park'. I will also not say she swung and sung for the fences and hit a home run.  I will resist the temptation to say that 'Team Haley' went to it's talented bench to put together the winning combination of Tedd Firth musical director and Will Nunziata, concert director (who conceived the show).  However I will say that her grandfather George Steinbrenner, who in addition to being 'The Boss' of the New York Yankees, loved music and had a passion for Broadway.  He would have been giving a standing ovation (with the rest of the crowd) to Haley Swindal at the conclusion of her ground breaking new show titled Golden Girl at Feinstein's/54 Below last night.  (more...)

Molly Pope Returns to Joe's Pub for Live Album Taping, 5/25Molly Pope Returns to Joe's Pub for Live Album Taping, 5/25
by BWW News Desk - May 16, 2017

Critically-acclaimed cabarettist MOLLY POPE returns to Joe's Pub at the Public Theater with her show 'An Audience with Molly Pope' for a live album recording on Thursday, May 25 at 9:30 PM. Drawing from a catalogue of recontextualized pop, theater and standards, the 'viscerally thrilling alto' (Time Out New York) wryly constructs and deconstructs herself with her signature neo-retro style.  Part concert, monologue, sing-a-long and heart-to-heart, she echoes the heyday of Greenwich Village nightclubs in a current context. Ms. Pope's 'powerhouse vocals and sassy wit' (Out.com) paint the madcap picture of a 21st century singer with the band. Tedd Firth will lead an all-star five-piece band. You are all cordially invited to 'An Audience with Molly Pope.' (more...)

It might require a bit of stamina but if you can move fast you can hear Marilyn Maye at a 7PM show at Feinstein's/54 Below… only stay for one standing ovation and then scoot down to Birdland at 44th street just in time for Ann Hampton Callaway's taking the stage to another standing ovation at 'The Jazz Corner of The World'.  Is there another place on the planet where 2 of the greatest female jazz/pop vocalists are appearing within 1/2 mile?  Marilyn's show is called 'Carrying The Torch' and as the world knows she is capable of running with that torch and lighting the flame at the Olympics but in this case she is keeping the flame of the American Songbook burning.
