Marilyn Maye: "The Best of Times is Now!"
"The great Marilyn Maye will be giving me the ultimate 80th birthday present by singing my songs at Feinstein's. I am absolutely thrilled. Jerry Herman
FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, will continue its Fall 2011 season with the return engagement of Grammy Award nominated singer and entertainer MARILYN MAYE. Her new show, The Best Of Times Is Now! which honors the legendary Broadway composer Jerry Herman on this 80th Birthday year features songs from his shows including Mame, Mack and Mabel, Hello, Dolly! and Milk and Honey. Marilyn starred in Hello, Dolly! many times and recorded a CD of all the songs from the Tony Award winning score. Her recent local appearances have been received with rave reviews and full houses. Stephen Holdens New York Times review of her Feinsteins show last May stated By the end of the evening, as is usually the case with her shows, I was walking on air, infused with a giddy certainty that life really is a cabaret. To quote Rex Reed in The New York Observer, Her show is not to be missed. Its a master class in singing conducted by a polished pro who majored in unforgettable. Maye will be joined by pianist/conductor Tedd Firth (Billy Stritch on November 8-11), bassist Tom Hubbard, and Jim Eklof, her drummer, who is celebrating 50 years with Ms. Maye. The show runs at Tuesday, November 1 to Saturday, November 12 at the Loews Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
