Welcome to Sammy’s Bowery Follies, a new romantic musical comedy about a famous nightclub on the Lower East Side of New York City from 1934-1970.

Written by Sharon Barnett in tribute to her father, the beloved MC at Sammy’s for 22 years, this show captures the ambiance of a rare Shangri-La melting pot where classes and races mixed, and top stars of the day, tourists, and locals alike gathered nightly to revel in the atmosphere created by the outrageous cast of characters both on stage— and in the audience!

The show follows Barney Marks, who returns from World War II to follow his dream of being a New York City performer. His journey from the USO lands him behind the scenes of Sammy’s— where real life and on stage life collide to provide us with a heartwarming story filled with drama, romance, and colorful characters. Add a rousing score spanning musical styles from the 1920s to the 1940s, and you have Sammy’s Bowery Follies, a musical love letter to show business and the famous nightclub that was a historical piece of the fabric of New York nightlife.
