Ute Lemper: RENDEZVOUS WITH MARLENE, NOVEMBER 27 - 28 AT 9:30PM
This show is based on a 3 hour phone call and exchange between Marlene Dietrich and Ute Lemper in 1988 in Paris, 30 years ago. After receiving the French Moliére Award for her performance in Cabaret in Paris, Ute had sent a postcard to Marlene, who had lived at 12 Avenue de Montaigne since 1979, essentially apologizing for all the media attention comparing her to Marlene Dietrich. Ute was just at the beginning of her career in theatre and music, whereas Marlene looked back on a long, fulfilled life of movies, music, incredible collaborations, love stories, and stardom.
What a secret gift to hear Marlene talk about her life, her work and style, her love for the poet Rilke, her complicated relationship with Germany, her sorrow, and her fascinations.
Six days before Ute's opening night playing the part of Lola in the 1992 Blue Angel production in Berlin - the role that had made Marlene a star in 1928 - Marlene Dietrich passed away in Paris. After her glamorous funeral in La Madeleine, Marlene finally came back to Berlin to be put to rest.
In this unforgettable show, Ute tells us Marlene's story, along with singing her fabulous songs from all the chapters of her life, from the Berlin cabaret years to her fabulous Burt Bacharach collaborations. From "Just a Gigolo" to "Blowin' In The Wind," every musical moment is not to be missed.

At 26 years old, Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded songs, drew album art, and hand wrote lyrics for the release of her third studio album, Ladies of the Canyon, which Rolling Stone hailed as "An album of departures, overheard conversations and unquiet triumphs for this hymnal lady who mingles the random with the particular so effectively." Music director Benjamin Rauhala and Mientus will cover the album in full, stripping beloved songs such as "Big Yellow Taxi," "Woodstock," and "The Circle Game," down to find the hymns inside these unquiet triumphs.

Marieann Meringolo: IN THE SPIRIT, DEC 1 AT 9:30PM
Marieann Meringolo, an award-winning vocalist brings back her critically acclaimed Annual Holiday Show In The Spirit to Feinstein's/54 Below! It is not to be missed, and it's sure to put you "In The Spirit" this holiday season!
Expect classic holiday songs, sung in a way that'll make you feel you're hearing them for the first time, as well as original holiday songs that you could swear were already holiday classics! According to Cabaret Scenes, "Marieann Meringolo brings a dynamism all her own to the meticulous lineup of songs she chooses. She is a persuasive performer who can step on a stage and deliver songs with natural authority. Many holiday tunes are so familiar that audiences listen with half an ear, but when you hear her potent "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing," you have to sit up and pay attention. If a strong, belting vocal delivery is your preference, Meringolo has it. Prefer sensitive intensity? Just listen to "Mary, Did You Know?" (Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene), a song recorded many times by country singers, Meringolo's rich, resonant tone brings in a sophisticated layer of wisdom over the obvious religious tradition."
