Review: MARNIE KLAR SINGS CARLY SIMON Finds The Right Tone at Don't Tell Mama

It is a brave artist indeed who tries to capture the complex nature of the career of Carly Simon. That is the task that Marnie Klar sets for herself in her show MARNIE KLAR SINGS CARLY SIMON, which had an encore performance Monday evening at Don’t Tell Mama. It is clear that Ms. Klar has great respect for Carly Simon and possesses a great deal of knowledge about how her songs came to be. Like Simon, she is quite a beauty and has a great dexterity with language. She also shares with Simon a wide emotional range.

Gracie Lee Brown Records Live Album Of Thomas Hodges Original Music At Don't Tell Mama

After over a decade of collaboration, Gracie Lee Brown and Thomas Hodges are recording a Live Album of their show 'Say Goodnight, Gracie' at Don't Tell Mama in New York City. Gracie explores the great loves of her life while singing a heartbreaking setlist of original songs by Thomas Hodges.

Gracie Lee Brown and Thomas Hodges Bring Ten Years of Performing Together to Don't Tell Mama NYC With SAY GOODNIGHT, GRACIE

A light-hearted, gut-punching, mournful dissection of singlehood, love, romance, loss, and maybe most importantly: an indomitable desire for Gavin Creel. But, every Say Goodnight, Gracie is different. There's a wonderful rotation of musicians including bassists, vocalists, saxophonists, and my personal favorite: a very nervous dad, playing the Ukulele.
