NYC: LUCILLE CARR-KAFFASHAN SINGS THE PRAISES OF 21ST CENTURY FEMALE SINGER-SONGWRITERS! - OPENS MAY 7th
MEMBER DISCOUNT - $5 OFF THE COVER

This May, Lucille brings her love for songwriting artists to DON'T TELL MAMA (343 West 46th Street, NYC - 212-757-0788), New York City's legendary cabaret theater and piano bar. Lucille Carr-Kaffashan's last two cabaret outings were critically acclaimed shows that celebrated the work of the Beatles and of 1970's female singer-songwriters. She continues this tradition with her brand new show "Unwritten, Celebrating 21st Century Female Singer-Songwriters." With musical director Jeff Cubeta on piano and back-up vocals, Sean Harkness on guitar, and Matt Scharfglass on bass, Lucille will perform Unwritten on Saturday, May 7th at 3:00 pm; on Thursday, May 19th at 7:00 pm; and on Friday, May 20th at 7:00 pm. With direction by David Hilder, this show features a diverse collection of 21st century songs written by outstanding artists such as Adele, Annie Lennox, Sara Bareilles, Susan Werner, Meghan Trainor and Tracy Chapman. The program reflects the voices of women in their early 20's as well as those in their 60's, and every decade in between, opening a window to the hearts and minds of contemporary women. Lucille is the recipient of the prestigious Hanson Award, presented each year to one individual by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. Lucille performed for a number of years in the regional productions of the New Jersey-based Entertainers Theater before developing her first cabaret act. Since her Don't Tell Mama debut in 1999, she has presented nine different one-woman shows at clubs in New York City, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, including Mama Rose's, The Encore, Helen's, Odette's, The Stockton Inn, and Bob Egan's Cabaret Supper Club.

NYC: "LATE NIGHTS IN SMOKY BARS", WITH BARBARA BLEIER and AUSTIN PENDLETON

Barbara Bleier And Austin Pendleton present 'Late Nights In Smoky Bars' at PANGEA (178 Second Avenue, NYC - 212-995-0900) on Wednesdays, May 11th & 25th at 7:00 pm. The show is an exploration of the relationship of two old friends, in story and song, who meet up in bars through the years. Barbara And Austin have known one another in many roles through several decades, and have shared much of their past and current lives with one another, usually over drinks at a bar. Through an interesting selection of known and unpublished musical material, the relationship gets described and acted out in the present and past, one night at a bar, as it becomes increasingly clear to them, and to the audience. Austin Pendleton is an actor, director, playwright and teacher of acting. He has appeared frequently on, off and off-off Broadway. (His first Broadway appearance was as Motel the Tailor in the original production of Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Jerome Robbins, and starring Zero Mostel.) He can be seen in approximately 200 films. He has appeared regularly on TV on such shows as Oz, Homicide, Law and order and Billions. He curently also teaches acting in New York at HB Studio, where he studied with Uta Hagen and Herbert Berghof. He also studied acting with Robert Lewis. Barbara Bleier is a singer, actor and playwright who has appeared in solo shows and revues in national and international cabaret, as well as appearing on stage, in film, and on TV. The mother of a psychopathic killer in the cult classic, SWOON, she appeared most recently in THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, with Jane Fonda and Tina Fey, and in THEY CAME TOGETHER, with Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler. She just completed a cabaret engagement in Los Angeles, at the Gardenia. Her solo show, WHO'S YOUR MAMA? was selected for production in the NYC Women at Work Festival, and her two-person revue with Austin Pendleton received critical praise in New York and Chicago. She has studied acting with Austin Pendleton, singing with Barbara Maier, and musical performance with Julie Wilson at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center. There is a $25 cover ($20 if purchased online) and a $20 food/drink minimum.
