HOTLINE MEMBER CABARET EVENT TONIGHT IN NYC: MAUREEN TAYLOR - TAYLOR MADE: BOB MERRILL - ONE NIGHT ONLY
In 2009 and 2010, opera singer turned cabaret performer Maureen Taylor staged a cabaret show tribute to Bob Merrill's music and critics raved. Six years later, on Wednesday, July 13th at 7:00 pm, Maureen Taylor will reprise her highly praised show, TAYLOR MADE: BOB MERRILL at THE METRO-POLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440). Taylor's Musical Director is Matt Castle on piano, with Joe Brent on guitar, mandolin, and violin. Her special guest performer is two-time MAC Award winner Rev. Yolanda (Roger Anthony Yolanda Mapes). Composer and lyricist Bob Merrill might not have had the name recognition of songwriters such as Jule Styne, Lerner & Lowe, or Rodgers & Hammerstein, but he wrote songs for some of the classic musicals of the 1960s•such as Carnival!, Hello Dolly! Funny Girl, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Merrill, a Tony Award, Academy Award, and Golden Globe nominee was also responsible for composing pop hits for singers such as Patti Page ("How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?"), Jimmie Rodgers ("Honeycomb"), Rosemary Clooney ("Mambo Italiano"), and Jane Morgan ("Love Makes The World Go 'Round"). In addition to cabaret shows in New York, Maureen Taylor has performed as an opera singer with the Chicago Lyric Opera, the Chicago Symphony, and Chamber Opera of Chicago, as well as with opera companies in Philadelphia and West Palm Beach. Taylor has also performed musical theater with international and regional theater companies from New York to London to Switzerland. There is a $25 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
