"In a restless world like this is - you have to ‘accentuate the positive’ , ‘elim - I – nate’ the negative. And we won’t mess with Mr. In - Between!” With that thought, John Philip - lawyer, actor - lover of the Great American Songbook - and pirate?? - will sail you away with songs written by great composers, arrangements and meaningful medleys created and directed by Marilyn Maye.

"I'm sending you a message of optimism as I look ahead to my encore performances” shares John. “I hope you'll be there to ‘latch on to the affirmative’! Together we'll smile and have a meaningful, musical evening."

John Philip: Oceans of Love and Life plays Don’t Tell Mama (343 West 46th Street) on Friday, March 22 @ 7pm, Sunday, April 28 @ 4pm, Friday May 17 @ 7pm, and Friday, June 14 @ 7pm. There is a $20 cover charge and a $20 food and beverage minimum – cash only. Reservations and additional information are available here or by calling (212) 757-0788.

John Philip has had many of the jobs New York City could offer anyone in the arts – from several stints as a waiter, advertising, non-profit work – and then finally law. The last was a surprise – rather than making him a lawyer full time, it allowed him to develop his own practice and return to performing – where his work has ranged from daytime television to a principal role in the Merchant-Ivory film The Bostonians, and many Off-Off Broadway productions. Most recently he appeared in the George R Carr work Poem. It is New York City – it’s acting teachers, workshops, and fellow performers, that taught him what he has learned about the art of performance. And no coach/performer has inspired and taught him more than Marilyn Maye. AEA SAG AFTRA.
