Mamie Parris to Present SURRENDER: AN ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER THRILL RIDE at The Green Room 42

THE GREEN ROOM 42 will present Mamie Parris, star of Broadway’s Cats, School of Rock and more, in “Surrender: An Andrew Lloyd Webber Thrill Ride” for two performances on Thursday, October 19 and Monday, November 6, both at 7:00 PM. This is the Andrew Lloyd Webber evening you didn’t know you needed – or maybe it’s the Andrew Lloyd Webber evening you've been waiting for. Now is your chance to think back on those playlists you belted along with in high school, surrender to the music of the night, and let the memory live again. Mamie Parris, who starred as Grizabella in the Broadway revival of Cats for 14 acclaimed months, wraps her impressive vocal cords around such fan favorites as “Rainbow High,” “Tell Me on a Sunday,” and “As If We Never Said Goodbye.” She also includes her own number from School of Rock, “Give Up Your Dreams,” and more surprising choices ranging from “Chanson d’Enfance” to “Starlight Express.” Conceived and directed by Ben Rimalower (“Countess and Friends,” “Leslie Kritzer is Patti LuPone at Les Mouches”) with musical direction and arrangements by Brian J. Nash (Natalie Joy Johnson, LuAnn de Lesseps), “Surrender: An Andrew Lloyd Webber Thrill Ride” promises something for everyone and more than just a little touch of star quality.
Mamie Parris makes her solo debut at The Green Room 42 with a song collection near and dear to her heart. After finding the two-cassette Original Broadway Cast Recording of Cats in a lost and found box at 12 years old, the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber became an indelible part of her life and career. Mamie starred as Grizabella in the 2016 Broadway revival of Cats after originating the role of Patty in Lloyd Webber’s School of Rock, then returned to close School of Rock on Broadway in the role of Rosalie. Soon after, she joined the cast of the US premiere of Lloyd Webber’s Unmasked at Paper Mill Playhouse, marking 5 years of singing Lloyd Webber’s music nearly non-stop. On Broadway, her other credits include On the Twentieth Century, The Drowsy Chaperone, Ragtime, 110 in the Shade, and the First National Tours of Wicked (Elphaba), 9 to 5 (Judy), and Legally Blonde. She was seen Off-Broadway in Anything Can Happen in the Theatre (OOBCR), Pump Boys and Dinettes, and See Rock City (OOBCR). Regional credits include roles at Paper Mill Playhouse, Goodspeed, The Muny, Pittsburgh CLO, and more. Mamie is a sought-after symphony soloist with upcoming dates in Columbus, Milwaukee, Baltimore, and more. Visit for more info. Find her on Audible, Instagram, and TikTok or just wave passionately when you see her on 8th Avenue, babe! 
Ben Rimalower is the author and star of the long-running solo plays Patti Issues (New York Times “Critic’s Pick,” MAC and Bistro Awards) and Bad with Money, available as a double audiobook, as well as producer and host of Broadway Podcast Network’s “Giants in the Sky: How Sondheim and Lapine Went Into the Woods.” He writes the theatre column in Metrosource Magazine and has been a frequent contributor to Vulture, Playbill, Out, Decider, and Huff Post. Ben directed Snoopy! (starring Tony winners Sutton Foster and Christian Borle), the Off-Broadway plays Joy and The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero (starring Gillian Jacobs and Anna Chlumsky), and a slew of solo shows, most notably conceiving and directing “Leslie Kritzer Is Patti LuPone at Les Mouches” and subsequently producing Ghostlight Records’ Patti LuPone at Les Mouches. He is recognizable around the world for his four seasons on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” as the writer-director of LuAnn de Lesseps’s record-breaking cross-country cabaret sensation, “Countess and Friends.” He also co-wrote de Lesseps’s single, “Feelin’ Jovani.” Ben serves as the Director of Programming for The Green Room 42.

The Musical Comedy Stage Hit – Direct from London
The online and in-person musical comedy stage hit The Fabulist Fox Sister makes its New York début. Come see Michael Conley's “staggering performance” (The Spy in the Stalls) in this “bewitchingly hilarious play” (Younger Theatre) that’s a “superb entr’acte of history and comedy” (The Reviews Hub) which the critics called “bloody brilliant” (The Family Stage), “eccentric and beguiling” (iNews), “brash and sardonic” (The Stage) and “simply fabulous” (QueerGuru). New York, 1892: Kate Fox, the woman who inadvertently invented séances is holding her last one. Loosely inspired by the loosely true story of Kate Fox, The Fabulist Fox Sister is a silly, scathing and sardonic one-person musical inspired by our own era of approximate truth. The Spectator said that “Netflix should turn this into a series.” The show has music by Luke Bateman and book and lyrics by Michael Conley.

Reeve Carney
After countless sellout performances, Reeve Carney returns to play another solo concert while starring in Hadestown on Broadway. He is best known for his portrayal of Dorian Gray on Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” Riff Raff in Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show Reimagining, as well as originating the role of Peter Parker in Julie Taymor/U2’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Featuring selections from his 5-time Independent Music Award-winning album, Youth Is Wasted, as well a few surprises from the Broadway canon and the Great American Songbook, Reeve delivers a one-man-show cabaret that feels more like an invitation-only after-party than a traditional concert performance.
