STARDUST: A NIGHT IN THE COSMOS
“If the quirky world of New York cabaret were a high school class, Jennifer Sheehan would qualify for valedictorian, prom queen and the person most likely to succeed. Her new show, “Stardust: A Night in the Cosmos,” which she performed at 54 Below on Saturday, is a leap forward.” –The New York Times
Multiple award-winning performer Jennifer Sheehan and her stellar quartet celebrate the beauty, wonder and romance of the night sky in a song-studded 54 Below evening featuring songs as dazzling and diverse as the stars above — including music from Pink Martini, Duke Ellington, Sergio Mendes, Melody Gardot, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell and Kurt Weill, just to name a few!
It’s a celebration of the many ways we come to love the night sky — as wide-eyed children who look up in wonderment, as young lovers who fall under its enchantment, and as star-gazers of all ages who contemplate love and life on this small blue dot in the universe. And, of course, the stars spark our imagination about what lies beyond… so the show also features some fascinating stories about new discoveries about our star-studded cosmos!
One might say it’s a show that goes where no show has gone before!
Jennifer Sheehan, a critically acclaimed, multi-award winning vocalist, starred in the premiere episode of the new WNET/WLIW (PBS) TV series, “66th and Broadway,” which aired throughout February 2015. It is now available for online streaming!
