Amy Beth Williams Returns to Don't Tell Mama with BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY: THE SONGS OF LEONARD COHEN February 19th

Award-winning cabaret artist plays encore of tribute show to "Hallelujah" composer.

Amy Beth Williams Returns to Don't Tell Mama with BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY: THE SONGS OF LEONARD COHEN February 19th Cabaret artist Amy Beth Williams will return to Don't Tell Mama with her much-praised Leonard Cohen tribute show on February 19th at 7 pm. The fascinating artist that has, for years, captured the attention and support of audiences by the show-load debuted BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY: THE SONGS OF Leonard Cohen shortly after the re-opening of the clubs due to the global health crisis as a one-off. After scoring a rave review from Broadway World cabaret reporter Bobby Patrick, Ms. Williams put the show on the back burner to focus on an evening of musical storytelling that focused less on the canon of one composer and placed on display the works of a variety of creatives. That show, A THOUSAND BEAUTIFUL THINGS, also brought Amy Beth Williams a rave review from Broadway World, and the singing actress played the club act a few more times in 2021. With a new year upon us and new calendar dates available, the multiple award-winning member of the cabaret and concert community has an opportunity to return to the show that brought her back to the stage for the first time since the pandemic hit.
