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, 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, Boardwalk Empire and the haunting Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego Theme strut his piano-banging stuff.
Featuring special guests Adam Kantor (Fiddler on the Roof) and Stephen Hill.
Read the rave review from The New York Times.
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.
