What’s happening all over . . . I’ll tell you what’s happening all over . . .
Sheera Ben-David , the daughter and sister of accomplished musicians, is bringing her latest show “After The Rain” to Feinstein’s. This talented singer is dramatic and expressive and very down to earth.
Jennifer Sheehan is already a multi-award recipient and is bringing her new ‘60s show “I Know A Place” to Feinstein’s. She captures the essence of a star on the rise with her vocal talent and performance know-how.
Don’t be fooled when you are at the Metropolitan Room and being served by Lorinda Lisitza. She’s one of the best singers around. A winner of a Nightlife Award for Outstanding Performance in Cabaret Musical Comedy, as well as a Bistro Award, she is debuting her latest show “Triumphant Baby:The Songs of Iconis & Maddock” at that venue.
Steve Tyrell is a Grammy Award-winning vocalist and truly a renaissance man. In his four and a half decades in the music business, he has achieved great success as an artist, producer, songwriter, music supervisor, and performer and returns to the beautiful Café Carlyle.
Seth’s Broadway Chatterbox is a one hour weekly talk show hosted by Seth Rudetsky. The show features sassy Broadway celebrities and happens on stage Thursday evenings @ 6 PM at Don’t Tell Mama. You never know who you’re going to run into and it’s always lots of fun.
