Martha Plimpton ALL THE PRESIDENTS MANN Plays This Friday At Spiegeltent
This Friday (June 29), Spiegeltent at Bard SummerScape welcomes Emmy, Obie, Outer Critics Circle award winner and three-time Tony Award nominee Martha Plimpton (The Goonies, The Real O'Neals) with her acclaimed cabaret show "All The Presidents Mann." In the spirit of Independence Day, Plimpton and her brilliant musical director Dan Lipton (The Last Ship, The Other Josh Cohen, Kelli O'Hara) pay tribute to genius songwriter Aimee Mann, dedicating songs to some of their most (and least) favorite U.S. Presidents. With wit, charm, and vocal prowess, Plimpton and Lipton lead their audience through a minefield of love, loss, and electoral misjudgment, with the music of one of America's greatest living songwriters.
"I adored 'All the President's Mann'. It was funny and brilliant." - Mark Rylance, actor/director
"Martha is effortlessly musical, howlingly funny, fearless and wildly entertaining. Her voice is a mixture of the finest interpreter of Sondheim with the gale force and raw honesty of a Janis Joplin." - Amanda Green, lyricist
"All The Presidents Mann" will feature special guests Julian Fleisher and Lucy Wainwright Roche with music direction by Dan Lipton. Plimpton will be joined by Alexandra Eckhardt on bass, Matt Beck on guitar, and Damien Bassman on drums.
Martha Plimpton "All The Presidents Mann" will play at 7:00pm and 9:30pm on Friday, June 29th at the Fisher Center, Spiegeltent (Richard B.
