NYC: ERIC COMSTOCK AT CAFE NOCTAMBULO AT PANGEA
FINAL SHOW UNTIL FALL
FINAL SHOW UNTIL FALL
Eric Comstock returns to his residency at New York's newest music venue, CAFE NOCTAMBULO AT PANGEA (178 Second Avenue, NYC - 212-995-0900) from 8:00 pm to midnight every Tuesday night through May 26th. An acknowledged master of the American Songbook, Comstock has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and virtually every important nightclub in New York and across the country. He is one of only a handful of singer/pianists who can command a room merely by sitting at the piano, singing and telling stories. In addition to his extensive knowledge of repertoire, Comstock has a seemingly unending supply of anecdotes about the songs, the writers, and the stars who sang them. His unique combination of musicianship, history and charisma creates an experience that is as entertaining as it is musically savvy, and his audiences feel they've been to a terrific party where the music and the stories have been equally great. There is a $20 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

NYC: THE JULIANA PROJECT BY VANDA
The JULIANA PROJECT returns to THE DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE (61 Christopher Street, NYC - 212-255-5438) on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Each month the cast of the JULIANA PROJECT performs a number of chapters from the novel, JULIANA, in a way that is similar to a mini-series. In each "episode" the story is brought to life as the actors recreate scenes from 1940s New York. Often these scenes occur in places familiar to modern day audiences, such as Times Square, MacDougal Street and Cafe Reggio. The "episodes" contain live musical performances, comedy, sex and drama, performed in clothing suggestive of the time period. The audience becomes engulfed in this bygone era and soon finds itself in the midst of a gripping story of gay men and women living through a tumultuous time of fear, triumph, secrecy, love and excitement. Vanda, the writer, has earned numerous awards as a playwright. In addition to being an Edward Albee Fellow, Vanda was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, and recently won Best New Play in Celebration Theater's New Play Contest (originators of Naked Boys Singing). Her play, PATIENT HM, won first place in Pride Stage and Screen's Women's Contest and another play, THE FORGETTING CURVE, which is under option to Theatrum Mundi, was produced at Boston Arts Center this past September. Her work has been produced in New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Scotland. Her prose has been published in Prairie Schooner, The Outrider Review and Pentimento. No cover, just a 2-drink minimum.

NYC: BESS MCCRARY CD RELEASE WITH SPECIAL GUEST SARAH KERVIN
Bess McCrary celebrates the release of her sophomore album, Resurrect Me at THE CUTTING ROOM (44 East 32nd Street, NYC - 212-691-1900) on Tuesday, May 26th at 7:30 pm. The CD is a bracing collection of genre-demolishing tunes that draws on a soulful combination of pop, jazz, and funk. Based in New York City, Bess is an alchemist of both pain and joy; her brave songwriting and profound lyrics providing purpose for her unique, classically trained voice. A North Carolina native and lifelong performer, Bess has always crossed genre lines and let her most personal experiences dictate the path her music takes. In 2013, her first full-length album, for Happy, was released as a love letter to her late mother. Resurrect Me is another powerful collection of songs inspired by McCrary's own recent bout with cancer, an experience that caused permanent nerve damage to her voice, but left her spirit and talent intact. Her newest single, "Conquer and Thrive," serves as an ode to resurrection and as an anthem to encourage us all to be our best selves. Recently chosen as an Artist-in-Residence by the Serenbe Community for May 2015, Bess also performs regularly around the country with her full band and smaller ensembles.
