Silky voice and smooth sophistication are heading to Pangea in the form of Dorian Woodruff

Dorian Woodruff Returns to Live Performing With STUDIO MUSICIAN: THE MUSIC OF MANILOW November 5th and 12th at Pangea One of the cabaret industry's most dedicated performers and community members, Dorian Woodruff announced yesterday that he will return to the stage with a new show centered around one of the music industry's biggest legends, Barry Manilow. Manilow, who started his career as a studio musician, has always been an inspiration to Woodruff, who has done plenty of his own time providing music for other artists, either as a musician or a vocalist. Well-known for the depth and detail that he puts into his shows, from song selection to script to detailed voyages of discovery into each lyric, conducted between him and director Lina Koutrakos and Musical Director Gregory Toroian, Woodruff is often spoken of as one of the smoothest voices and intricate storytellers in cabaret.

Learn all of the details about STUDIO MUSICIAN: THE MUSIC OF MANILOW in the press release provided by publicists working on behalf of Woodruff, Pangea, and (in a way) Manilow.

Dorian Woodruff presents Studio Musician: The Music of Manilow

New York City - MAC and Broadway World nominee Dorian Woodruff brings his life as a musician and backing vocalist to the Pangea stage for performances in "Studio Musician: The Music of Manilow" on November 5 and 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Dorian Woodruff Returns to Live Performing With STUDIO MUSICIAN: THE MUSIC OF MANILOW November 5th and 12th at Pangea Says Woodruff, "I used my allowance and bought the Tryin' To Get The Feeling album. On the back was a photo of Barry with a beagle. My grandfather loved beagles and he saw the picture and decided I hadn't wasted my money. That sealed it for me. Barry, all the way."

"Whether you admit to being a Fanilow or not, I wager every one of you could sing at least one line of least 10 Barry Manilow songs. So, I realized while putting together a show with only Barry Manilow music would mean an hour or so of slower, more heartfelt songs, I will just say, it's a good thing neither Barry nor I are afraid of an epic ballad." Please join me as I share the music of one of the greatest songwriters of our generation. Lola, jingles, and more.
