GYPSY IN MY SOUL: DAWN DEROW SINGS EYDIE GORME To Debut May 23rd

GYPSY IN MY SOUL: DAWN DEROW SINGS EYDIE GORME To Debut May 23rd

May 3rd, 2021 - Bistro and MAC-award winner Dawn Derow is debuting her latest cabaret performance, GYPSY IN MY SOUL: Dawn Derow Sings Eydie Gormé on Sunday, May 23rd at The Bijou Theatre. Grammy and Emmy award-winning singer Eydie Gormé is known for her gold record hits, including "If He Walked Into My Life," "Sabor a Mi," "This Could Be the Start of Something Big" and so many more. Renowned music director Ian Herman and director Jeff Harnar worked with Dawn to craft this stunning, vibrant performance. This multi-award winning production trio previously worked together on MY SHIP: Songs from 1941, and have teamed up again for this journey through the music of Eydie Gormé. Mr. Harnar, in fact, will be joining Ms. Derow as a special guest in the show, alongside another special guest, renowned singer and musician, Danny Bacher. Find information on the performance and the virtual broadcast HERE.

"Eydie Gormé is one of the best vocalists of all time, in my opinion and many others," Dawn shares on why she chose Eydie Gormé for her latest cabaret offering. "I didn't start listening to her until about 2015 and once I did, her powerful vocal ability won me over. In this show, I'm not trying to impersonate her or sound like her. I am bringing her vast catalogue of songs she recorded throughout her five-decade career to audiences of today. She's worth a tribute, and I wanted to shine my light on her story and career, so that today's listeners will embrace and love her music as much as I do."

The debut performance for GYPSY IN MY SOUL: Dawn Derow Sings Eydie Gormé was originally slated for March 14th, 2020 at The Beach Cafe in New York City. As the show grew closer, COVID-19 took hold of New York City and forced Dawn to cancel her event. While disappointed, Dawn continued to prepare for the show's debut, and aimed to premiere it in 2021. With live music slowly returning to New York City and beyond, Dawn decided to work with The Bijou Theatre in Bridgeport, CT and the Musae platform to bring the music to audiences both in-person and virtually. Ticketgoers have the choice to attend the performance in-person, socially distanced at the venue, or to stream the show live from home. With revolutionary 360° cameras, audience members can watch the show from the comfort of their home while immersing themselves in the venue and setting through virtual reality technology.
