NYC: DEAR HENRY BY ARTHUR WOOTEN, STARRING LUKE DOYLE
ASD Media & Entertainment is proud to present Dear Henry ... a charming, funny, slightly risque, and ultimately moving piece of theater, at THE DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE (61 Christopher Street, NYC - 212-255-5438) on Sunday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm. In 2008 & 2009 Arthur Wooten was the humorist for the London based Magazine reFRESH. The column revolved around a man writing letters to his exasperating boyfriend, Henry, regaling readers in numerous crazy shenanigans (both sexual and non) that the two had gotten into during their relationship. reFRESH readers fell in love with Arthur and couldn't wait for the next installment of Dear Henry. Wooten became the Carrie Bradshaw of London with Brits (both gay and straight) waiting to see what the two would get into next. Ultimately each letter explained the never-ending reasons why they must end their relationship. But as we all know, sometimes breaking up is really hard to do. Now that column has become the jumping off point for this hilarious and irreverent one man show. While reexamining his colorful yet complicated relationship with his on again/off again lover Henry, Clark Compton Lowell III makes the best discovery anyone can make. He finds ... himself. ASD Media & Entertainment is an Indie company specializing in book publishing, stage, and film productions. There is a $16 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: HEATHER MALONEY: ALBUM RELEASE TOUR
Singer-songwriter Heather Maloney celebrates the release of her newest LP, Making Me Break, at JOE'S PUB at THE PUBLIC THEATRE (425 Lafayette Street, NYC - 212-967-7555) on Sunday, May 3rd at 7:00 pm. Working with Grammy- nominated producer Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses, Avett Brothers), the two crafted and delivered on an artistic vision to merge Maloney's folk roots with indie rock. Maloney's new music has a definite edge, but it also has a classically trained voice that delivers well-crafted lyrics over a technical arrangement - a combination we've recently seen getting mainstream appreciation once more. Suddenly, the term "singer- songwriter" carries serious weight again. She teamed up with producer Bill Reynolds and an all-star group of players with extraordinary talent, including engineer Jason Kingsland (Iron & Wine, Delta Spirit), guitarist Tyler Ramsey (Band of Horses), and guitarist and sax player Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket). Throughout the new musical heights and depths on this record, Maloney's voice and lyrics remain center stage, truthfully articulating the insights and emotions of growing up, without clich•s nor quirks for their own sake. Maloney's journey to finding herself as a singer-songwriter took some unexpected routes. She studied classical operatic, improvisational jazz vocals, and music theory for several years in New Jersey, in addition to a brief stint studying classical Indian vocals with a tutor. Maloney found herself at a silent meditation retreat center in Central Massachusetts. She lived and worked there for nearly 3 years, taking vows of silence from seven to ten days at a time. The silence, oddly enough, became conducive to finding one's true voice. This was the breakthrough Maloney had been waiting for, the first moment she had a reason to get up on stage. Armed with guitar and her fresh sense of purpose, Maloney traversed across the northeast - playing coffeehouses, libraries, and even meditation centers - before eventually getting signing with celebrated independent record label Signature Sounds (Lake Street Dive, Josh Ritter). Maloney's self-titled label debut followed in 2013, launching her from the small stages of New England to nationwide audiences, sharing stages with renowned musicians like Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Shakey Graves, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Anais Mitchell, among others. In 2014, Maloney released a collaborative EP with Boston quartet Darlingside called Woodstock, on which she covers Joni Mitchell's anthemic "Woodstock" - and absolutely nails it. An ensuing nation-wide collaborative tour with Darlingiside gave birth to new experiences, emotions, and perspectives. Maloney began to find moments in the van, in hotel rooms and on days off at home to write the songs that would eventually become Making Me Break. There is a $15 cover.
NYC: AMBER MARTIN: THE DAYS OF MY LIVES
Amber Martin returns to JOE'S PUB at THE PUBLIC THEATRE (425 Lafayette Street, NYC - 212-967-7555) on Sunday, May 3rd at 9:30 pm for the final installment of her The Days of My Lives residency. This new show is Martin's blending of music, raunch, stories, movement, and acid-capped comedy with a powerful, multi-octave singing voice. Amber shares hilarious recollections of her life growing up around the swamps and dirt-road backwoods of Southeast Texas through the 70's ... her church camp, hair-metal, pageant queen 80s and her college, LA Riot, flight attendant, acid-dosed 90's. Amber's featured guest for this triumphant final show is her mom, Cheryl Martin, live onstage. With live music by Ray Rizzo, Nath Ann Carrera, Brett Every, Claudia Chopek, Jan Tilley and Patrick Johnson. There is a $20 cover.
