Chelsea Table + Stage to Present Ari Axelrod in A PLACE FOR US: A CELEBRATION OF JEWISH BROADWAY

CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE will present the return of acclaimed international artist Ari Axelrod and his award-winning show “A Place for Us: A Celebration of Jewish Broadway” for two performances, on Monday, October 23 and Monday, October 30, both at 7:00 PM. Hailed by BroadwayWorld as “genuinely one of the finest shows this writer has ever seen,” the concert spotlights Jewish vitality and Jewish culture by honoring the songs and stories of Jewish composers and their contributions to the American musical. Beloved melodies and lyrics by the likes of Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Schwartz, and Carole King will transport you to the streets of the theatre district, your Bubbie’s Shabbos table, or your corner of the sky. The evening features music director and arranger Mike Stapleton on piano, Nathan See on flute and clarinet, Sam Quiggins on cello, and Josh Roberts on percussion. Larry Yurman serves as Music Consultant. 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.

Ari Axelrod was named one of the 36 most influential Jews under the age of 36 in the country by The Jewish Week. He received the 2022 Bistro Award for Theatrical Artistry in Song. “A Place for Us” began with a sold-out run at the historic Birdland Jazz Club, featuring six-time Emmy and Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh. It has since grown to international acclaim, performing to sold-out audiences around the world, and garnered him a BroadwayWorld Award and a MAC Award nomination for Best Male Vocalist in 2020. His debut solo show “Taking the Wheel” – directed by Tony Award winner Faith Prince and music directed by multiple MAC Award winner Alex Rybeck – has been performed in numerous cities around the country. Ari’s work as a director has been seen at the Tony Award-winning Paper Mill Playhouse, Birdland Jazz Club, 54 Below, and The Green Room 42. His debut album, Ari Axelrod Live at Birdland, is now available on all streaming platforms.
