Much of Hollywood's greatest film music was written by émigré and exiled composers who fled Nazi Europe for Southern California. Kurt Weill, Max Steiner, Erich Korngold, Dimitri Tiomkin, Miklós Rózsa, and other European composers brought from their respective homelands the highest level of culture, which they poured into American movies. On Hollywood and Weimar celebrates the blending of the old world and the new to produce the uniquely hybrid sound of Hollywood's Golden Age. From dusty westerns and sweeping romances to the thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock, soprano Karyn Levitt and pianist Jed Distler perform songs ranging in style from Weimar cabaret, musical theater, and country-western to operetta, art song, and jazz... from "Falling in Love Again" to "Green Dolphin Street," from "San Francisco" and "Cosi Cosa" to "Spellbound," from "Rawhide" and "(High Noon) Do Not Forsake Me" to Kurt Weill's "Song of Ruth," selections from Hanns Eisler's Hollywood Songbook, and more!

Karyn Levitt is a leading interpreter of this impressive repertoire. She curated all the songs and wrote the narration, which together make the program a perfect homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood. As a distinguished artist/producer, Ms. Levitt is known for her historic collaboration with the foremost Brecht translator, Eric Bentley - whose centennial tribute (hosted by Michael Riedel and featuring Tony Kushner, Austin Pendleton, and other theater luminaries) she produced at The Town Hall and whose work she performs in concert and recorded on her CD, Eric Bentley's Brecht-Eisler Song Book.

Music Director/Pianist: Jed Distler

Directed by Michael Unger

Written, curated, and produced by Karyn Levitt

$25-$35 cover charge. $60 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.

Broadway stars Kate Baldwin, Gavin Creel, Erika Henningsen, and Ethan Slater relive their most embarrassing onstage moments and then try to redeem themselves by recreating that moment live in Let Me Try That Again: Take 7 on November 17th. At the end of the evening, the audience votes on the star performer who most redeemed themselves through their efforts that night. More performers will be added in the coming weeks.

About The Performing Arts Project: TPAP is a not-for-profit organization that provides vibrant theatrical training to a generation of young performers through dynamic and constantly evolving programming, the cornerstone of which are summer intensives Blueprint, Compass, and Panorama. Funds raised during this benefit will go directly towards scholarships and student programming. For more information, visit https://www.performingartsproject.com/.
