If Leona Helmsley were in purgatory and she had a free pass to spend an hour topside, would she do a cabaret? It’s a great premise. You’ve got to hand it to Alex Lippard for thinking that this would be a timely moment to wonder how a nasty, larger-than-life New York real estate mogul could […]

Steven Zumbo

Steven Zumbo

“You know, we eschew themes,” Steven Zumbo announced early in his recent show at Don’t Tell Mama, a two-night engagement directed by Helen Baldassare. (He could have added that show titles would also be shunned—he dispensed with that convention as well.) The theme-free policy was fine by Zumbo’s enthusiastic audience, and fine by me, too. […]

Rachelle Garniez

Rachelle Garniez

Pangea Tuesday July 17, 7:00 pm 2018 Bistro Award winner, singer-instrumentalist-songwriter Rachelle Garniez is a true original. Her musical sensibilities are grounded in classic American popular music, but her lyrics have a wry, offbeat, and very contemporary wit and attitude. Her show this evening will focus on the songs she’s written about New York over […]
