PERRY OJEDA: JUST IN TIME - The Songs Of Betty Comden and Adolph Green Come to Feinstein's/54 Below
After a hit run at Palm Springs' Coachella Valley Rep, a string of high profile performances at acclaimed jazz club Upstairs at Vitello's in Los Angeles and an exclusive engagement onboard the Norwegian Cruise Line's mega ship The Escape, Perry Laylon Ojeda brings his solo act: JUST IN TIME: The Songs of Betty Comden & Adolph Green to Feinstein's/54 Below in New York City on April 4th 2019 at 9:30pm.
The award-winning team of Comden & Green are the longest running creative partnership in Broadway History and have distinguished themselves as playwrights, screenwriters and lyricists who have collaborated with genre defining composers including Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman and Andre Previn, among others. This special cabaret performance, starring Perry Laylon Ojeda, is a musical tribute to the unparalleled contributions they have made to the American Musical Theatre and Hollywood's Golden Age, including culturally defining films and plays like SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, THE BAND WAGON, AUNTIE MAME, ON THE TOWN and many more.
Perry, a veteran of Broadway and London's West End, relates his personal experience working with the legendary songwriting team when he performed the leading role of "Gabey" in the 1998 Broadway revival of ON THE TOWN and reveals in his own touching words and memories how they mentored and touched his life as an actor & performing artist.
With musical direction and arrangements by Mark Hartman and staged by Ron Celona, Mr. Ojeda sings many familiar and not-so-familiar songs from such Comden & Green musicals as Bells are Ringing, PETER PAN, Subways are For Sleeping, On the Town, Fade Out - Fade In, On the Twentieth Century, Do Re Mi and Wonderful Town as well as hidden gems from some of their award-winning films.
