IN HER OAK ROOM RETURN FEBRUARY 15-MARCH 12 MAUDE MAGGART DECLARES “EVERYBODY’S DOIN’ IT”

Leave a comment

maud maggot

Beautiful and beguiling, sultry with a touch of coyish kink, young vocalist Maude Maggart, who first captivated Oak Room audiences six years ago with her “transformative interpretations” of the Great American Songbook, returns with a new show exploring varieties of romantic experience.

Proving once again that when it comes to voice, size doesn’t matter. Maggart’s vocal instrument makes up for low decibels with a unique vocal quality, filled with unexpected emotional nuances an an uncanny rapport with her audience.
Sporting a new hairdo and an eye-catching red gown, cut low in the back, the evening begins with a playful riff on Irving Berlin’s “Everybody’s Doin It.” Ms.Maggart continues with such Sinatra classics as “The Lady Is A Tramp,” “The Best is Yet To Come” and “I Wished On The Moon” (recorded by Sinatra with lyrics by Algonquin Round Table doyenne Dorothy Parker). Two by Stephen Sondheim, “More” and “Everybody Says Don’t,”come off with a contrast of humor and humility. But neither can match the poignancy of an exquisite rendition of Sondheim’s “Anyone Can Whistle” which is withheld till much later in the program.

The mood shifts to the 20s, an iconic era for Maude, “A New Kind of Man with a New Kind of Love for Me” and shuttles to the most subtle rendition of Cole Porter’s “Down In The Depths” we’ve encounted in many years.

Maude is beautifully accompanied on piano by John Boswell. The Oak Room does it again. Great value, ever improving food and service, and an array of acts that never disappoint. Maude Maggart is a delight. Don’t miss her.

Shows—from February 15th to March 12th–are Tuesday through Thursday at 8:30 and Friday and Saturday at 8:30 and 11, with dinner seating at 7 and drinks seating at 8. There is a $50 cover charge per person plus either a $30 food and beverage minimum or a $60 prix fixe dinner. Reservations: 212 419 9331 or bmcgurn@algonquinhotel.com.

STEVE ROSS CELEBRATES “RHYTHM & ROMANCE” IN HIS NEW OAK ROOM SHOW JANUARY 18-FEBRUARY 12

“Better than ever, Ross is the consummate performer. His piano, voice and  and movement have never been better. The act is a gem. Don’t miss it! The Walman Report”

Steve Ross’ recent Oak Room triumphs celebrated the genius of Stephen Sondheim, Alan Jay Lerner and Fred Astaire. In his new show, “Rhythm and Romance,” Steve segues from tributes to individual artists to an exploration of two essential aspects of the Great American Songbook. Rhythm and Romance are just two simple words with endless variations, as Steve will reveal with…“Broadway Rhythm,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “My Romance,” “Isn’t It Romantic” and “I’ll Take Romance,” among others. Brian Cassier assists beautifully on bass.

Medleys, always a highlight of Mr.. Ross, were outstanding and included Cole Porter’s "I Am In Love," "Down in the Depths," and "Just One of Those Things;" Rodgers & Hart’s "Falling In Love With Love" and "You Took Advantage of Me; and a haunting tribute Edith Piaf on piano. Other fond memories recall Brel’s moving "Fanette." Flanders & Swann’s delicious "Have Some Madeira, M’Dear" has never had a more intoxicating interpretation.

Shows are Tuesday through Thursday at 8:30 pm and Friday and Saturday at 8:30 and 11 pm, with a $50 cover charge plus either a $30 food and beverage minimum or a $60 prix fixe dinner. Reservations: 212 419 9331 or bmcgurn@algonquinhotel.com

Steve Ross, dubbed the Crown Prince of Cabaret in New York, has long since expanded his realm to embrace other cities, countries and continents. He has helped sustain the popularity of the songs of Cole Porter, Noel Coward and their matchless peers in such varied venues as the Ritz in London and Paris, the Imperial in Tokyo and festivals in Hong Kong, Perth and Spoleto. He has hosted radio series for BBC and NPR, and continues to participate in popular concert and lecture series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the 92nd Street Y. He recently enjoyed a month’s sojourn in Australia where he headlined the first Melbourne Cabaret Festival and the world renowned Sydney Opera House. This past December he appeared in New Haven with the world famous Yale Concert Band celebrating the songs of Yale alumus Cole Porter. He finished the year with performances in South Florida at the Kravis Center, which the Palm Beach Daily News called “a master class on the cabaret style..weaving in and out of one great song after another.”

ERIC COMSTOCK & BARBARA FASANO GREET NEW YEAR IN “HELLUVA TOWN:A NEW YORK SOUNDTRACK” JANUARY 4-15

Leave a comment

eric and barbara

Eric Comstock and Barbara Fasano, the popular husband-and-wife team equally at home in the worlds of pop and jazz, will debut their new show,
”Helluva Town: A New York Soundtrack,” from January 4th to 15th during their annual sojourn in the legendary Algonquin Oak Room Supper Club. The duo will celebrate the love/hate affair most New Yorkers have with their city through the songs of Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers & Hart, Comden & Green, Strouse & Adams, Coleman & Leigh, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell and other explorers of the Big Apple in good times and bad. Among their selections are “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Comes Once in a Lifetime,” “My Time of Day,” “Lucky to be Me” and “How About You?”

Shows are Tuesday through Thursday at 8:30 and Friday and Saturday at 8:30 and 11. There is a $50 cover charge plus either a $30 food and beverage minimum or a $60 prix fixe dinner. Reservations: bmcgurn@algonquinhotel.com or 212 419 9331.

Winners of the 2010 Nightlife Award as Outstanding Cabaret Duo, Eric and Barbara last appeared in the Oak Room in February with their highly praised show, “This Thing Called Love,” of which Rex Reed observed, “If love is a wave, they are riding the crest of it.” Though they’ve been compared to Nick and Nora, Fred and Ginger and Lunt and Fontanne, Comstock and Fasano’s unique blend of wit and sensuality is all their own. They’ve performed at Carnegie Hall, Feinstein’s, The Carlyle and Birdland, and have headlined at Caramoor, Cooperstown Music Festival, Guild Hall in East Hampton, St. Louis, Philadelphia and Palm Beach. Eric Comstock created and contributed his masterful piano and vocals to the hit revues “Singing Astaire,” “Made for the Movies” and “Our Sinatra” (which debuted in the Oak Room and played 1300 performances off-Broadway). His new CD, “bitter/sweet” debuts this month, joining previous releases “Young Man of Manhattan” and “All Hart.” A multi-award winner from Manhattan Association of Cabarets, Barbara Fasano has appeared in musical theatre productions of Wonderful Town, Grease and Side by Side by Sondheim. She won a Back Stage Bistro Award Record of the Year for “Written in the Stars,”a Harold Arlen songbook, and another for “The Girls of Summer,” featuring songs from Springsteen to Sondheim. She will release “Roundabout,” based on her one-woman show, later this year.

Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Week One

January 12 – 15, 2011

The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th Street

Wednesday, January 12, 2011, 8:30 pmBarbara Cook has been called “the greatest singer in the world,” and six decades after her professional debut her voice still astounds. Cook changed the way we listen to the American songbook, treating popular tunes as the art songs they are and investing the lyrics with an actor’s understanding and sensitivity. Her recent turn on Broadway in “Sondheim on Sondheim” reminded everyone of her place in American musical history. This night in The Allen Room will add to her firmament.

Thursday, January 13, 2011, 8:30 pmThe Low Anthem Formed in 2006, The Low Anthem is a newly-hot indie folk band from Providence, Rhode Island. They specialize in close harmonies often sung in guttural growls, and unexpected instruments such as the crotales (a percussion instrument of bowed cymbals) and a World War I-era pump organ.  As was apparent on their critically acclaimed album, Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, their songs are beautifully crafted and infused with a human touch.   Their eagerly-awaited second album on the Nonesuch label, Smart Flesh, will come out in February, 2011.

Friday, January 14, 2011, 8:30 pm and 10:30 pmLance Horne: First Things Last, with special guests from Broadway and the West End, including Alan Cumming and Cheyenne Jackson A composer on the rise! An arranger, songwriter and performer, Lance Horne is a musician who takes no prisoners. He composes and arranges songs for diverse talents from Broadway and the West End – many of whom will join him in The Allen Room for a night of musical theater to launch his new album, First Things Last.

Saturday, January 15, 2011, 8:30 pm: Mary Chapin Carpenter This five-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter recently released The Age of Miracles, a collection of songs that she calls a personal exploration of regret and resilience. She combined folk, country, acoustic, rock and blues to craft songs that speak to life’s most personal details as well as their most universal. Carpenter will perform songs from this album, as well as others, accompanied by a unique band of instrumentalists in a show created especially for the intimacy of The Allen Room. Sponsored by Logicworks. The album was just nominated for a 2010 Grammy as Best Contemporary Folk Album.
