Born in Boston in January 1953, Stern grew up in Washington, DC, then returned to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music. After college, he got his start as a guitar player with Blood, Sweat & Tears at age 22. Following a brief stint with Billy Cobham's powerhouse fusion band from 1979 to 1980, he moved to New York City, where he was recruited by Miles Davis to play a key role in Miles' celebrated comeback band of 1981 (which also included bassist Marcus Miller, drummer Al Foster, percussionist Mino Cinelu and saxophonist Bill Evans). During his three-year period with Miles, Stern appeared on three recordings with the jazz maestro: Man with the Horn, Star People and the live We Want Miles. He toured with Jaco Pastorius' Word of Mouth Band from 1983 through 1985 and returned to Miles' lineup for a second tour of duty that lasted close to a year. Read more here.

CABARET TONIGHT IN NYC: PHOEBE LEGERE'S "SHAKESPEARE AND ELIZABETH I: THE REALITY SHOW"

CABARET TONIGHT IN NYC: PHOEBE LEGERE'S "SHAKESPEARE AND ELIZABETH I: THE REALITY SHOW"

Phoebe Legere, the renowned singer, author, composer and multi-format artist, has written a full-length musical comedy, "Shakespeare and Elizabeth I: The Reality Show." THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (155 First Avenue, NYC - 212-254-1109) will present this world premiere from Saturday, November 29th through Sunday, December 15th. The show plays Thursdays through Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sundays at 3:00 pm.

Director David Zen Mansley plays the Bard and trumpeter Rhys Tivey plays Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, the Queen's noble heartthrob. After analyzing the life, letters, translations, poetry and iconography of Queen Elizabeth I, Legere concluded that "Shakespeare" was, in fact, Elizabeth Tudor and her inner circle. Her new musical is a heady brew of "eye of newt, toe of frog," gigantic neck ruffs, amazing scenery and special effects. It features numerous quotes from the complete works of both Shakespeare and Elizabeth presented with Legere's signature social commentary and comic flair. This "Reality Show" is a feel-good feminist reading of the Shakespeare Brand enlivened by the music of Phoebe Legere.

And Linn was exotic, coming from New Zealand. "Nobody knew where that was!" This cool Kiwi lady has a reputation of being charismatic and upbeat and her original songs and anecdotes evoke a golden bygone New York, 1977-1985.

CABARET TONIGHT IN NYC: PHOEBE LEGERE'S "SHAKESPEARE AND ELIZABETH I: THE REALITY SHOW"

Phoebe Legere, the renowned singer, author, composer and multi-format artist, has written a full-length musical comedy, "Shakespeare and Elizabeth I: The Reality Show." THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (155 First Avenue, NYC - 212-254-1109) will present this world premiere from Saturday, November 29th through Sunday, December 15th. The show plays Thursdays through Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sundays at 3:00 pm. The musical is about love, war, espionage and creative genius, and includes music written by Legere, who heads the cast of ten as Queen Elizabeth I. Director David Zen Mansley plays the Bard and trumpeter Rhys Tivey plays Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, the Queen's noble heartthrob. After analyzing the life, letters, translations, poetry and iconography of Queen Elizabeth I, Legere concluded that "Shakespeare" was, in fact, Elizabeth Tudor and her inner circle. Her new musical is a heady brew of "eye of newt, toe of frog," gigantic neck ruffs, amazing scenery and special effects. It features numerous quotes from the complete works of both Shakespeare and Elizabeth presented with Legere's signature social commentary and comic flair.
