Rhyme, Women, and Song starring KT Sullivan & Company
Monday, September 16
KT Sullivan, artistic director of The Mabel Mercer Foundation, will present an evening of “Rhyme, Women, and Song,” saluting the great female songwriters: Dorothy Fields (The Way You Look Tonight); Betty Comden (The Party’s Over); Carole King (Will You Love Me Tomorrow); Billie Holiday (God Bless the Child); Carolyn Leigh (The Best Is Yet To Come); Joni Mitchell (Both Sides Now), and more. These classics will be presented by KT Sullivan: “vocally, comically, and theatrically assured as cabaret performers get” The New Yorker; Marissa Mulder: “one of the biggest break-out performers of the last five years” Time Out New York; Stacy Sullivan: “a commanding, willowy presence, who captures that rare combination of vulnerability and worldliness” The London Times; Natalie Douglas: “a true, true, star” BBC London Radio; and Marieann Meringolo, an exquisite vocalist and specializes in The Bergmans. The performers will be accompanied by the incomparable Jon Weber at the piano.
