BREAKING NEWS - NEW ORLEANS, LA.:WELL-STRUNG'S DEBUTS BRAND NEW SHOW "PARTY IN THE USA" AT CAFE ISTANBUL MAY 6 - 8
Producer Mark Cortale has announced the world premiere of "Party in the USA," a brand new show by the internationally acclaimed singing string quartet Well-Strung, and directed by New Orleans' own drag superstar, Jeffery Roberson (aka Varla Jean Merman). The four performers, who specialize in pairing classical compositions by Mozart, Beethoven, and Bach with pop hits by Adele, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Clarkson, will perform for three performances only, at CAFE ISTANBUL (2372 St. Claude Avenue, New Orleans, LA - 1-800-838-3006 - http://broadwaynola.com/ ) on Friday & Saturday, May 6th & 7th at 8:00 pm and Sunday, May 8th at 7:00 pm. The performances will benefit Krewe of Armeinius. Described as talented and seriously trained musicians, as well as hunky and gorgeous, Well-Strung is composed of first violinist Edmund Bagnell, second violinist Christopher Marchant, violist Trevor Wadleigh, and cellist Daniel Shevlin. The group was conceived by producer Mark Cortale and Christopher Marchant. They have received critical acclaim at New York's prestigious Feinstein's/ 54 Below and well beyond, from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Leicester Square Theatre in London. They have performed recently at the Vatican in Rome, appeared on Watch What Happens Live, and they have also performed with artists such as Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, and Deborah Voigt. Well-Strung made their second appearance on The Today Show this past October, and the foursome has quickly gained international attention playing in London, Rome, and Vienna, as well as selling out venues all across the United States. Well-Strung's new CD, titled "POPssical," debuted at #8 on Billboard's Classical Crossover Chart and #9 on Billboard's Classical Chart last fall. The album is available now at iTunes or on CD at CDBaby. Tickets at 1-800-838-3006 - http://broadwaynola.com/ .
