GREAT CABARET COMING WEDNESDAY TO NYC: MARISSA MULDER'S "LIVING STANDARDS" AT THE MET ROOM
Marissa Mulder's new show "Living Standards" will be performed at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Wednesday, May 14th at 9:30 pm; Wednesday, May 21st at 9:30 pm; Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00 pm; and Friday, June 6th at 7:00 pm. "Living Standards" is an exciting new cabaret show that addresses the complaint "they don't write 'em like they used to." Produced and directed by Tom Toce, "Living Standards" presents later entries to the Great American Songbook. Songs written by living composers and lyricists. Songs that are every bit as witty, elegant, touching, and intelligent as the Gershwin/ Kern/ Porter standards of days past. "Living Standards" will include work by the best of today's cabaret songwriters, writers such as Francesca Blumenthal, John Bucchino, Craig Carnelia, Julie Gold, and Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, as well as songs from singer-songwriters like Christine Lavin and Anais Mitchell. Celebrity songwriters like Randy Newman and Joni Mitchell will be included as well. Some songs will be well known in the cabaret community, having achieved "standard" status through numerous recordings or industry awards. Other songs will be less well known, but in the opinion of the show's creators, equally deserving of the high status. Marissa Mulder recently won two MAC Awards, for Major Artist and for recording of the Year. Both awards pertained to her last show at the Metropolitan Room, "Tom...In His Words," devoted to the songs of Tom Waits. Tom Toce is a veteran theater and cabaret songwriter. There is a $25 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
