Nancy And Beth Return To Cafe Carlyle, May 14-25
Nancy And Beth (starring Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt) return to Café Carlyle, May 14-25. The self-described punk-showbiz band has been praised by NPR's All Things Considered as "musical misfits," and "as sharp as any revivalist act going today" by The Los Angeles Times. Nancy And Beth's previous residency was hailed as "the most avant-garde show to play the Café Carlyle in recent memory" by TheaterMania. With a combination of psychic twinship, childlike enthusiasm, rigorous preparation of songs, and zero preparation of what happens in between, Megan and Stephanie and the five doll faces that back them up have created a musical outfit that is celebratory, surprising, sweet, tuneful, eye-catching, thought-provoking, and amusing. The band is comprised of Megan Mullally (vocals, choreography); Stephanie Hunt (vocals); Datri Bean (keyboards, vocals); Joe Berardi (drums); Petra Haden (strings, vocals); Roy Williams (guitar, vocals); Andrew Pressman (bass, vocals).
Performances will take place Tuesday - Saturday at 8:45pm. Weekday pricing begins at $110 per person / Bar Seating: $75 / Premium Seating: $160. Weekend pricing begins at $135 per person / Bar Seating: $95 / Premium Seating: $185. Reservations can be made online via Ticketweb. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).
