Green Room 42 Hosts AN EVENING WITH PATTI PAGE
Patti Page is being celebrated October 12 9:30PM at Green Room 42 as part of Blake Allen's "An Evening With..." series. Called "an important vehicle for musical preservation" (BroadwayWorld), the series is committed to honoring and educating audiences about the music of America from the early-mid part of the 20th century by setting these celebrated works with notable contemporary voices and new arrangements.
The Green Room 42 and Danny Marin present "An Evening With..." Patti Page, the fourth installment of this important series, on Friday October 12 at 9:30 p.m. inside the Times Square Yotel. Curated by Blake Allen, known for his innovative bridging of contemporary music and theater through composition, he also orchestrated the evening and provides a deeper inside to the life of Patti Page with video clips, facts, and a slide show.
The evening will feature the songs we all know from the 40s-70s, spanning Patti Page's legendary Grammy winning career, with beloved songs from "Tennessee Waltz" to "Allegheny Moon," "(How Much is That) Doggie in the Window," "I Went to Your Wedding" and "Old Cape Cod," to Broadway songs she made into pop standards, wonderful vocal quartets such as "And So to Sleep Again," "I Adore You,"!and unexpected mashups with a nostalgic flair.
The cast will include the smooth vocal stylings of theatre, radio, and voice over actress Christine DiGiallonardo (A Prairie Home Companion, Candide, Me and My Girl, Fabreze), singer-songwriter Nicole Weiss (The Imbible..., Folk Wandering), Vanjah Boikai (Porgy and Bess), and more announced soon.
