7 PM Gretchen Reinhagen in HOW MUSICAL THEATER RUINED MY LIFE
Click Here to buy tickets.

Multi-Award-winning Singer, Actress, Comedienne Gretchen Reinhagen brings her brand-new Musical Theater-themed show to Urban Stages, with longtime friend and teaching partner David Gaines at the piano, for a special 1-night-in-NYC-only performance. Growing up in a musical theater world, Gretchen revisits some of her favorite shows, favorite roles and favorite songs, as well as exploring a 21st-century show tune or two. While the theater didn't really ruin her life, she was a fairly gullible kid who desperately wanted to believe that the sun would come out tomorrow, and you wouldn't be arrested for always hanging out on the street where she lived. She was also the kid who rooted for Oklahoma's Jud to get the girl and was convinced she was just a bagel on a plateful of onion rolls. This show is packed with the music that Broadways fans love, the songs that Gretchen's voice loves to sing, and, as always, Gretchen's special brand of "The Universe keeps trying to give me material" comedy. Directed by Barry Kleinbort.

5 PM UP 'TIL NOW" A SONGWRITER'S RETROSPECTIVE
Click Here to buy tickets

Veteran songwriter David Buskin has been writing, recording, and performing his music professionally since 1970. He's made about fifteen albums, most as half of the duo Buskin & Batteau or in his notorious "geezer band" Modern Man. His songs and jingles have been recorded by many great artists including Judy Collins, Peter, Paul & Mary, Johnny Mathis, Astrud Gilberto, Tom Rush, Dixie Carter, Roberta Flack, Mel Tormé, Take 6, Phoebe Snow, Richie Havens, and Arlo Guthrie. He is a New York Nightlife Award, Bistro Award, and Clio Award winner. He was also a recipient of the ASCAP Jamie deRoy Award for excellence in songwriting. His daughter Sophie Buskin saw her first solo CD, SWEET CREATURE, instantly establish her as a force to be reckoned with in the singer/songwriter world; it went to #1 on the Folk DJ charts and remained there for three weeks. While at school, she performed as a member of the prestigious Berklee Gospel Choir. She has backed up Jewel, Little Anthony, Alana Davis, Marci Geller, and Paul Shaffer, among others. Father and daughter blend thrillingly, as frequently seems to happen when there is shared DNA, and their writing styles - his out of folkie roots, hers more grounded in alternative bands - combine in a compelling and nuanced multi-generational hybrid.

"David Buskin delighted a packed house with his irresistible amalgam of melodic, sensual pop, folkie grit and killer wit." -- The Washington Post

3 PM Susan Winter SINGS THE SIXTIES!
Click Here to buy tickets.

The 1960s was a decade teeming with glorious triumphs and life-altering upheavals: Vietnam, the optimism of a youthful President, miniskirts, the birth of the women's movement, political assassinations, student unrest, and Black Power. It was also a particularly fertile period for popular song; a time when, as a young girl, award-winning vocalist Susan Winter listened to the likes of Motown, Tony Bennett, Eydie Gorme, Tom Jones, Petula Clark, and the Beatles all at the same time. In her delightful new show, "Susan Winter Sings the Sixties", Ms. Winter musically revisits the many unforgettable innovations of the day: Girl Groups, Bacharach and David, Sergio Mendes and Brazil '66, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Roger Miller, and Tom Lehrer. She also gets to tangle with "Hair" and blame it on the Bossa Nova. Directed by Barry Kleinbort, with musical direction provided by Christopher Denny, Ms. Winter offers an evening of irresistible rhythms and musical richness, punctuated with personal observations about one of this country's most turbulent and musically diverse decades.

URBAN STAGES (Producer) is an award-winning, not-for-profit, Off-Broadway Theatre Company founded in 1984 by current Artistic Director Frances Hill. The play Eleanor and Alice, Conversations between two Remarkable Roosevelts by Ellen Abrams just closed with excellent reviews. For over 30 years, Urban Stages has produced dozens of world, American and NYC premieres including Pulitzer Prize Finalist Bulrusher (2007) by Eisa Davis. We have been honored with awards, nominations, and recognition from the Drama Desk, Obie Awards, Audelco, Outer Critics Circle, and much more. For instance, our world premiere of the musical Langston In Harlem by Walter Marks (music and book) and Kent Gash (book and direction) garnered a Drama Desk Nomination, a Joe A. Calloway award, and 4 Audelco awards including Best Musical Production of 2010. More recently, Trezana Beverly's Mabel Madness (2016) was nominated for an Audelco Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, Unseemly by Oren Safdie (2015) was a NY Times Critics Pick, Jim Broch Character Man (2014) was nominated for a Drama Desk and an Outer Critics Circle award for Best Solo Performance and Honky (2013) by Greg Kalleres saw a regional run at San Diego Rep and was televised nationally on PBS in late 2015. After production, most plays move on to larger venues. Men On the Verge of a Hispanic Breakdown by Guillermo Reyes and Minor Demons by Bruce Graham both moved to commercial theatres. Chili Queen, a play by newscaster Jim Lehrer, transferred to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (1989). My Occasion of Sin (2012) by Monica Bauer won critical acclaim when it moved to Detroit Rep. Bill Bowers has toured the United States and the world with his two Urban Stages premieres blending mime and theatre - Beyond Words (2012) and Under a Montana Moon (2002)! Some Urban Stages premieres have even been developed into film and television projects such as Scar by Murray Mednick, Conversations with The Goddesses by Agapi Stassinopoulos, and Cotton Mary by Alexandra Viets. In addition to plays and musicals, annually we hold a music festival - Winter Rhythms - that features famous and up-and-coming Cabaret, musicians, lyricists, and other music artists. In 2016, Winter Rhythms was honored with the Bistro Award for Outstanding Series, and in 2015, it received the Ruth Kurtzman Benefit Series MAC Award from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs. Urban Stages is currently in rehearsals for the World Premiere of acclaimed playwright Zhu Yi's A Deal, running from November 15 through December 10th.

Tom Toce (Producer, Winter Rhythms) is a veteran theater and cabaret songwriter. He won the MAC Award for Comedy Song for "Shalom, Santa" in 2014.

In 2015, he conceived the Harvard-Yale Cantata at Feinstein's/54 Below. This now annual event just celebrated its fifth year, with Tom producing and hosting each one. Other recent shows include Mr. Victor's Cabaret for Hipsters: Songs of the 1990s (director and producer) at the Laurie Beechman Theater, MAC Award-Winning Songs at Urban Stages (director, host, and producer) and Living Standards (director and producer), starring Marissa Mulder, at the Metropolitan Room. Hopelessly in Love: The Lyrics of Tom Toce was one of the most successful shows at the Metropolitan Room in 2012 and 2013. The HIL recording was also nominated for a 2014 MAC Award. Tom has written a number of shows for children, and his cabaret songs have been sung and/or recorded by Jane Monheit, Andrea Marcovicci, Tovah Feldshuh, Maude Maggart, KT Sullivan, and many others. Tom is a two-time Jeopardy! champion (his encyclopedic knowledge of the Great American Songbook helped) and a member of the Jeopardy Hall of Fame, for high score in a single game.
