David Yazbek returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with special guest, The Band’s Visit star and Lortel Award winner Katrina Lenk. Here’s a rare opportunity to see one of the theater’s most innovative composers do what he’s actually best at— thrilling a live audience. The New York Times has called his live performance “A thrill-ride at a volcano’s edge”. Together with a band of the most exciting musicians in NYC (including a mighty full horn section!), Yazbek will perform songs from his albums and shows— old, new and upcoming.
Don’t miss this chance to see the composer/lyricist of The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Women On The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, The Band’s Visit, Boardwalk Empire, and the haunting Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego Theme strut his piano-banging stuff. Join David Yazbek and special guest Katrina Lenk for a celebratory evening of David’s incredible body of work!
David Yazbek makes music that jumps out of its skin. [He is] ferociously smart and intimidatingly hip. [His show] at Feinstein’s/54 Below [is] a raucous evening of unclassifiable musical comedy.
