SIMON GREEN: TRAVELING LIGHT Comes To Feinstein's One Night Only 5/24
FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, will continue its Spring 2010 season with the debut of Simon Green and musical director and longtime collaborator David Shrubsole in their 2010 Drama Desk Award nominated show, "Traveling Light." The show explores the practical nature of travel; passports, suitcases and sunscreen, as well as the experience of simply traveling through life featuring some of the greatest musical writings of the 20th Century from Lennon and McCartney to Leslie Bricusse to an inspired piece of collaboration between J.R.R Tolkein and Donald Swann. The show, which was nominated for the 2010 Drama Desk award for Outstanding Musical Review, will be performed at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
