HOTLINE MEMBER CABARET EVENT TONIGHT IN NYC: "A LIGHT IN THE WINDOW – SONGS OF JUDY COLLINS" AT THE MET
Singer/ songwriter Ruth Carlin is bringing back her critically acclaimed show, "A Light in the Window – Songs of Judy Collins," to THE METRO-POLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Thursday, July 14th at 7:00 pm. The show is directed by Scott Barnes, with Carlin's Musical Director Paul Greenwood on piano, Dick Sarpola on bass and John Redsecker on drums. Ruth Carlin premiered her critically acclaimed show at the Laurie Beechman Theatre last year, and then reprised it at The Duplex, Don't Tell Mama, and the Metropolitan Room. Now Carlin brings this illuminating exploration of the eclectic anthology of songs sung by Judy back to the cabaret mecca, Metropolitan Room. She touches on Ms. Collins' 50-year career spanning her early days in the '60s, her embrace of the Great American Songbook, musical theater and pop music. The show includes songs written by: Joni Mitchell, Stephen Sondheim, and Richard Farina. Along with other songwriters, Ms. Carlin will sing four songs written by Judy Collins herself. Rarely covered, these songs reveal another facet of this musical legend. In 2013, Carlin released her debut CD, Moon Song, which includes several of her own compositions. Her previous shows included Carlin originals, as well as music by many of our greatest songwriters. Music director Paul Greenwood is a sought after pianist, arranger, and singer who has accompanied countless performers including George Burns, Elly Stone, Jane Olivor, Art Garfunkel, Ann Hampton Callaway, Loni Ackerman, Anita Gillette, Penny Fuller, Nancy LaMott, and Sylvia McNair. Paul is a recipient of the Backstage Magazine Bistro Award, and the Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC) Award. Director Scott Barnes has created acts for award-winning singers Bette Midler, Rita Moreno, Kathie Lee Gifford, Barbara Brussell, Marianne Challis, and Alix Korey, and for five years directed, publicized and managed the career of the late, legendary Nancy LaMott. He received the 1994 and 1996 MAC Awards for Best Director. Call for reservations and cover/minimum information.
