NYC: JEFF MACAULEY BRINGS BACK "IT WAS ME - THE LYRICS OF NORMAN GIMBEL"
Jeff Macauley brings back his acclaimed show "It Was Me - The Lyrics of Norman Gimbel" toDON'T TELL MAMA (343 West 46th Street, NYC - 212-757-0788) for one more performance, on Saturday, March 30th at 7:30 pm. He will be joined by the superbly talented Tex Arnold, who also wrote the arrangements and the wonderful Jon Burr on bass. "It Was Me - The Lyrics of Norman Gimbel" has been performed in both Los Angeles and New York since August, 2012. In his previous shows, Jeff Macauley explored the rich world of early musical films in "Hollywood Party - Movie Songs 1928-1934," and paid tribute to the most popular female singer of the 40's and a beloved Hollywood icon in "MWAH! The Dinah Shore Show," for which he received Backstage magazine's Bistro Award. After examining the popular songs of the '20s through the '40s, Jeff is now taking a look at the popular music of the '50s, '60s and '70s through the extensive catalog of Norman Gimbel. Norman Gimbel won an Oscar for "It Goes Like It Goes" from Norma Rae and is responsible for some of the most recognizable and best-loved lyrics of the last half-century. In a career that goes back to the early '50s, Mr. Gimbel, working with such composers as Charles Fox, Michel Legrand, David Shire and Antonio Carlos Jobim, gave words to such standards as Meditation, Sway, So Nice, The Girl From Ipanema, I Will Wait For You, Watch What Happens, I Will Follow Him, Killing Me Softly With His Song, Bluesette, and Canadian Sunset, as well as the themes to Wonder Woman, Laverne & Shirley and Happy Days. He also wrote two Broadway musicals with composer Moose Charlap, "Whoop Up!" and "Conquering Hero." There is a $15 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
