Join award-winning NYC cabaret artist and actor, Valerie diLorenzo, as she delivers her unique blend of vocal nuance and humor to selections from the Sondheim catalogue including Into The Woods, Follies, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, A Little Night Music, West Side Story and more. Having been introduced to Sondheim at a very early age, this thespian feels like she “kinda grew up with Steve.” The joke about Sondheim’s songs is that there are just a million words in an often odd melody line, but, in this special evening of Sondheim, audiences will hear how he captures the human condition (and speech pattern) as no else quite can. And, in the case of Sondheim, first impressions do indeed merit a second glance.
Accompaniment by Amanda Borsack Jones (piano), David Elliot (Drums), and Steve Shaughnessy (Bass).
Cash Bar and Concessions will be available from The Golden Pear Café.

RENTAL EVENT Leningrad, 1970. A group of young Soviet Jews who were denied exit visas, plots to “hijack” an empty plane and escape the USSR. It started as a fantasy, Operation Wedding, as outrageous as it was simple: Under the disguise of a trip to a local family wedding, the group members would buy every ticket on a small 12-seater plane, so there would be no passengers but them, no innocents in harm’s way. The group’s pilot would take over the controls and fly the 16 runaways into the sky, over the Soviet border, on to Sweden, bound for Israel.
