A 76-time guest on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, Marilyn Maye has been both an under-the-radar performer and enthusiastically celebrated star for decades. From playing a Kansas City supper club for 11 years to selling out Carnegie Hall, she has used her expert interpretive skills and showmanship to wrap audiences in her dulcet tones. And history has noticed. Her recording of “Too Late Now” holds a spot in the Smithsonian Institute’s Best Performers of the Best Compositions of the 20th Century collection. Modern music fans have taken notice too. The Wall Street Journal’s Will Friedwald writes, “Marilyn Maye is pretty much every singer you ever wanted to hear: She has the rhythm and musicianship of a great jazz singer, the projection and personality of a heavyweight Broadway diva, and creates the intimate bond with her audiences that we demand from a cabaret artist.”<p>
Veteran Broadway star Jason Graae blends his singing talents and comedic timing into a delightful aural soup for the premiere of his one-man show, “Perfect Hermany.” An homage to his mentor Jerry Herman, composer of Hello, Dolly, Mame, and La Cage Aux Folles, the performance sees Graae dancing and belting out feel-good musical numbers with his signature charisma. He also showcases the acting chops that have earned him guest appearances on Six Feet Under, Friends, and Frasier, and have allowed him to slip into countless family dinners as the guest dad.<p>
