CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE – New York’s newest hotspot for intimate dining and extraordinary music – will present acclaimed tribute artist Peter Mac as Judy Garland on Saturday, August 12 at 7:00 PM. Celebrating the 101st birthday of this brilliant performer, Mac helps the audience rediscover the music and legacy of Hollywood’s golden-age songbird. This award-winning musical recreation of the triumphant 1960s-era Judy Garland is all sung live, with no lip-syncing. In this fantasia, the “rainbow diva” is 101 years young and still entertaining the masses, reminiscing about the old days, commenting on current events, and belting out her signature tunes as well as a few “that got away.” Tickets are $20-$50, in addition to a service charge and a two-item food and beverage minimum. A livestream option is available for $20. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street.

 

Peter Mac has gained an ardent fan following around the country over the last two decades for his loving, respectful and empathetic portrayal of Miss Garland. Mac chooses to focus on her music and great wit, rather than using her human frailties for cheap laughs. In 2012, in honor of his tenth anniversary performing as Garland, Mac received the Southern California Motion Picture Council Golden Halo Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Live Performance,” presented to him by Osar winner Margaret O’Brien and Garland’s best friend and co-star, Mickey Rooney.

MYRIAM PHIRO

“Becoming Marlene Dietrich” – Album Release Concert

*Livestream Available*

After sold-out performances at Joe’s Pub and Birdland rendering her acclaimed tribute to Edith Piaf, Myriam Phiro celebrates the release of her new album Becoming Marlene Dietrich. Dietrich was a pioneer in asserting a woman’s right to controlling her image and defying social conventions of the 1930s. By gaining the adoration of the American public in spite of challenging conventional moralities with her gender-bending roles, she became the epitome of glamor and a trendsetting style icon. Marlene exhibited an unapologetic control over her career and image while being featured in over 50 films and performing countless cabaret shows in a career lasting over 60 years. Becoming Marlene Dietrich tells Dietrich’s fascinating story through her greatest hits. Phiro is ecstatic about combining elements of Piaf and Dietrich’s time period and exploring the rumored scandalous relationship between the two. Phiro was deemed to be “the perfect re-enactment of a mix between Edith Piaf and Marilyn Monroe; deep, powerful, fun and sexy all at once” by NYC Culture & Style Magazine. A storyteller at heart, she will convey some of the most dramatic moments of Dietrich’s life and legacy while unveiling some of the diva’s mysteries.
