David Yazbek returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with special guests,The Band’s Visit actors Ari’el Stachel (Lortel and Drama Desk Award nominee) and John Cariani (Something Rotten!, Tony Award nominee for Fiddler on the Roof). 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 guests Ari’el Stachel and John Cariani 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.
