Merideth Kaye Clark: At the Intersection of Broadway and Blue

Join singer, songwriter, and actress Merideth Kaye Clark for a spellbinding evening, as she juxtaposes an extraordinary rendition of Joni Mitchell's masterpiece, Blue, with a beautifully curated song list of Broadway's most intimate songs.

Merideth Kaye Clark performed as Elphaba in the First National Tour of Wicked. She has played definitive leading theatrical roles nationwide, such as Eva Pero?n in Evita and Nancy in Oliver!, and has originated roles in two off-Broadway musicals. Clark is a sought-after concert artist described as "plain astonishing" (Broadway World) with "powerhouse pipes (The Seattle Times)." She is a multi-instrumentalist and plays anything with strings, most notably the guitar, dulcimer and viola.

ABOUT Symphony Space

Symphony Space traces its beginnings to a winter's day in 1978 when our two visionary co-founders, Isaiah Sheffer and Allan Miller, threw open the doors of a dilapidated theater for a free marathon concert, Wall to Wall Bach. Wall to Wall, Symphony Space's annual gift to the city, has since become one of our signature events. Today, Symphony Space presents more than 600 events each season, including literature in performance, music, film, theater, dance, and performance in HD. Our original programming focuses on bringing art, artists, and audiences together in an intimate setting, creating a sense of mutual access that is unique to Symphony Space. Some of our best known programs include Selected Shorts, a reading of short stories by stars of stage and screen, and one of the most popular series on public radio; and our music series, which this season alone is bringing everyone from Sweet Honey In The Rock to The Hot Sardines, Wye Oak, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo to our stages. Symphony Space's original comedy debate series, Uptown Showdown, has been called "New York's best comedy series" by New York Magazine, and our Thalia Book Club series brings authors ranging from George Saunders to Trevor Noah to Jennifer Egan to Symphony Space to discuss their writing, with celebrated actors reading excerpts from their works.

For more information, visit symphonyspace.org. Symphony Space is located at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street. Box office hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 1 pm - 6 pm, open one hour prior to performances and events. Tickets can also be purchased through symphonyspace.org, or by calling 212-864-5400.
