INNA BARMASH: YIDDISH LULLABIES AND LOVE SONGS
November 27 at 7:30 PM
$20 Advance / $25 Door
Yiddish songs - twinkling lullabies and earnest songs of love and love gone wrong. Raw, beautiful and elegant in their simplicity, many of the songs are rarely heard treasures of old Soviet era anthologies of songs collected in the shtetls of Ukraine in the 1920s. Inna Barmash's first started singing in Yiddish back in her home city of Vilnius, Lithuania as a child in the late 80s. This concert celebrates the release of Inna's new recording of Yiddish love songs and lullabies and is a return to Inna's roots as a Yiddish singer after many years of performing gypsy and folk repertoire from Russia and Romania in her band Romashka and exploring contemporary folk-inspired music as part of her husband's band Ljova & the Kontraband. Joining Inna on stage are Lev 'Ljova' Zhurbin (viola/fadolin), Shoko Nagai (piano/accordion), Dmitry 'Zisl' Slepovitch (clarinet) and Dmitry Ishenko (bass).

PUBLIC FORUM DRAMA CLUB SERIES
THE LONG CHRISTMAS DINNER
December 10 at 7:00 PM
$40
The fourth season of Public Forum begins at Joe's Pub with the new Drama Club series, a book club for plays that will feature one-night-only readings and discussions. Authors, musicians, journalists, scholars, and actors will come together to give onstage readings of one-act plays that have some special resonance in our lives today. Each reading will conclude with a discussion of the hard questions that the play addresses about our politics, our culture, and the way we live now. Curated by Jeremy McCarter, the popular Public Forum series presents the theater of ideas: conversations and performances with leading voices in politics, media, and the arts. The Long Christmas Dinner by Thornton Wilder will be read and discussed by Lisa Kron (actor/playwright), Douglas Rushkoff (media theorist), Anne-Marie Slaughter (president of the New America Foundation), Edward Moravcsik (son of Anne-Marie Slaughter), Tappan Wilder (Thornton Wilder's nephew and literary executor), and others. Wilder’s ingenious, heartbreaking play traces 90 years in the life of an American family, and will spark a discussion about family and storytelling in a society that’s rapidly accelerating.

MIKE ERRICO: HOLIDAY SHOW
December 19 at 7:00 PM
$20
The Mike Errico Holiday Show is a highlight in a year that has been filled with them. While maintaining a career as a recording artist and producer for TV and film, he has been teaching at Yale University and NYU's Clive Davis School of Recorded Music, where his guests have included Amanda Palmer, Benny Blanco, Jonathan Coulton, Ryan Miller, and others. In keeping with a long-standing Holiday Show tradition, Mike will distribute gifts, known as “Holiday Omens.” Recipients will be invited to interpret the Omen’s personal significance in the coming year. Hilarious, poignant or cautionary, they have proven to be alarmingly accurate.

JACKIE HOFFMAN: HEEB FOR THE HOLIDAYS
December 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24 at 7:30 PM
$30
What happens to a Jewish straight woman on a gay cruise during Rosh Hashanah / Yom Kippur? How does an unwanted aging actress survive in a New York overtaken by billionaires’ toddlers? These questions may or may not be answered at Jackie Hoffman's long awaited return to Joe’s Pub in a brand new show Heeb for the Holidays. Let Jackie suck the joy out of your holiday season with an evening of anger and song. Directed by Michael Schiralli and Musical Director Bobby Peaco.

THE HOT SARDINES
December 20 at 9:30 PM
$15
Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a Fats Waller-style stride-piano virtuoso, and tie the whole thing together with a magnetic, one-of-the-boys front-woman whose voice recalls another era, and you have The Hot Sardines, an NYC outfit (with a tap dancer) that’s been called “consistently electrifying live” (Popmatters). The Sardine sound – wartime Paris via New Orleans, or the other way around – is steeped in the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Waller used to make: Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. Pianist-bandleader Evan “Bibs” Palazzo and Paris-born singer Miz Elizabeth (who owe their collaboration to meeting via Craigslist) describe their band as “born in the 1920s, but raised in the ’00s,” reflecting a philosophy that hot jazz, dixieland and Tin Pan Alley tunes are all pop music, not historical artifact to be handled with kid gloves.

STARSKY + COX: YULE LIVE
December 21 at 9:30 PM
$20
It's a Winter Solstice tradition for our swinging, singing "psychics to the stars" (Vanity Fair) Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox to apparate at Joe's Pub on this darkest of nights to summon the return of light. Only this time they will be dragging some cosmic dirt from the shadows, revealing true identities, casting cats out of bags and skeletons from closets. In order for you to be reborn, our haute horoscopic heroes must first fix death square in the eye, conjure, and then kill off, a few demons. With divine assists from mincing snowmen, misfit toys, elvish dentists, queer adenoidal reindeer, musical director Matt Ray and Starsky + Cox's signature starry list of special guests. Starsky + Cox are internationally best-selling authors, TV personalities, metaphysicians, and intraplanetary performers who have staged eponymous shows in New York City at Joe’s Pub (Public Theater), Ars Nova and The Zipper Factory, and at Harvard's Oberon (American Repertory Theater) in Cambridge. They are authors of Sextrology and Cosmic Coupling and contributors to Glamour, Paris Vogue, Allure, Elle, Cosmopolitan and myriad other publications. Real-life consultants, Starsky + Cox boast many outspoken fans including Leo women J.K. Rowling, Charlize Theron and Tori Amos who wrote a song inspired by them, "Goodbye Pisces", which they often perform. Starsky + Cox have been featured on television’s “Live”, MTV’s “The Guy Code” VH1's "Big Morning Buzz" and are regular guests on “Chelsea Lately” on E! They are founders, with John Cameron Mitchell, of the Afterglow Festival in Provincetown and have produced and appeared with the most divinely talented artists in this or any other galaxy.

SANDRA BERNHARD: SANDYLAND

December 31 at 9:00 and 11:00 PM
***View Pricing***
In her own one-of-a-kind live show, Sandyland, that sharply blends theatre, rock-n-roll and stand-up with a little burlesque & cabaret, performer Sandra Bernhard returns in her annual holiday show from Thursday, December 26th through New Year’s Eve, December 31st. The shows are also in celebration of Joe’s Pub 15 Year Anniversary. The actress/singer/comedienne kicked-off her 2013 tour in early January, right after bringing 2012 to a riotous close by performing last year’s four night sold-out stint at Manhattan’s famed Joe’s Pub over New Year’s Eve. “Just below the surface, you sense the same roving critical eye that misses nothing” said the New York Times. Sandra’s live in-your-face performing combines her hysterical insight, outspoken views and outrageous mouth, along with her band, The Flawless Zircons. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture and classic rock attitude burns smart, still having all the raucous energy of youth. In addition to her numerous television and film appearances, audiences have raved about her work on the Broadway stage, including the critically acclaimed I’m Still Here… Dammit!, which opened Off-Broadway in 1997, moved to Broadway a year later, and was filmed for an HBO special. In 2006, Bernhard’s Everything Bad and Beautiful also opened to rave reviews.

Wladziu Valentino Liberace

New York: First Announcement:After a very successful and expansive New York workshop production, Dutch-American theatrical visionary Alexander DeJong’s opulent and lush Liberace musical, “ALL THAT GLITTERS” is preparing for its 2014-2015 Broadway Season Premiere.
 
Best defined as an eleven-years-in-the-making, gigantic musical event about the greatest showman on earth, a man whose single name changed the global entertainment industry into a money machine and a guaranteed good time, “ALL THAT GLITTERS” is on its way to establish the Liberace brand on Broadway, the most iconic address on the entertainment map and the only one Liberace did not conquer.
 
Now in talks with theatres in Toronto, Canada for the musical’s Fall 2014 World Premiere, Mr. DeJong is calling his profoundly brilliant creative team to the conference table in order to narrow the field of Broadway houses that can sufficiently hold the team’s opulent designs for a December 2014 Broadway Opening. 
 
To define the show as stunningly gorgeous would be understating the show’s glittering and thrilling theatrical effects that are being created by the breathtaking combination of its three award-winning, world-renowned designers.
 
Baldwin Pianos, now a subsidiary of Gibson Guitar Corporation and the original sponsor of Liberace himself, will supply the various pianos for the Broadway production, including the last one Liberace ever played, the Swarovski rhinestone-encrusted piano that was on stage at the legendary and record-breaking 1986 run at Radio City Music Hall. Two global jewelry companies are being approached to gallantly meet Mr. DeJong’s outrageously blinged-to-the-millionth-degree challenge; the wrapping of the chosen Broadway and out-of-town Theatres in diamond crystals, the outcome of which will be seen from Space when the rising Manhattan sun drenches their bedazzling design.     
 
Directed and choreographed by Alexander DeJong, “ALL THAT GLITTERS” has a book by Mr. DeJong and James A. Walsh, music and lyrics by Mr. DeJong and additional music by Tom Nelson.
The Creative Team includes Bob Mackie (Costumes), John Arnone (Scenery) and Howell Binkley (Lighting).
Broadway’s revered Jack Lee is providing the Musical and Vocal Supervision.
 
AX Productions, Inc. is producing.  Town Square Productions’ Don Frantz and Laurie Brown are General Managing.
 
Wladziu Valentino Liberace will be played by three men. 
 
Richard Kline will play him as the emotionally wrecked superstar who reinvented television, kidnapped Las Vegas and unapologetically cleaned up financially in Europe.
 
Final decisions are still to be made as to the two men who will play the maestro as a child prodigy in Milwaukee and as the neutron explosion that was Lee’s ascension to stardom.
 
Liberace spoke the language of Broadway. Sadly, he died before he played that neighborhood.
 
Alexander DeJong is about to resurrect the earthquake and finish the job.
  Cue the crowds. ABOUT “ALL THAT GLITTERS”

“ALL THAT GLITTERS” is as dramatic as Mr. Liberace’s life, every bit as funny as he was, and even more spectacular than any of the man’s own shows ever were.
 
The musical has been written, directed and choreographed as an overwhelming odyssey of opulence and an undeniable no-holds-barred tribute to the greatest entertainer of the 20th Century.
 
Launching with the nearly mythical audition by a ten-year-old Liberace on the great stage of the Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee, “ALL THAT GLITTERS” rockets through a career that defied reason in its stratospheric trajectory.
 
Liberace believed that just-plain-folks wanted to see the kind of “stuff” they would never have.  He was also convinced they wanted to hear the most profound music ever written throughout the ages.  He was right on both counts.
 
With the money that the world’s audiences threw at his feet he bought Louis XIV furniture, candelabra from the Palace of Versailles, one of the only five Phantom V Limousine Rolls Royces in existence, diamond encrusted coats, bejeweled pianos - and plastic surgery.   Lots of plastic surgery. His control of an audience wrote the rock star handbook.
 
His musicianship was revered by the greatest piano manufacturers on earth; as it still is today.
 
At home, his father broke his heart.   His mother smothered his soul.   And.  His boyfriends ruined his life.  But all of this emotional carnage was drowned out by the deafening ovations of audiences all over the world.
 
That is until the phone rang one day in the most expensive mansion in Las Vegas – his – and the voice on the other end of the line calmly announced to Mr. Liberace’s secretary, “This is the Doctor’s office, the blood-test results are in and the Doctor would like to see Mr. Liberace right away.”
 
“ALL THAT GLITTERS” has a score so huge it dwarfs the heart-break and reassembles Liberace’s otherworldly power to provide an escape from the mundane.

Julie Harris

 

BROADWAY TO DIM ITS LIGHTS

WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 7:45PM

IN LOVING MEMORY OF LEGENDARY
STAGE AND SCREEN ACTRESS

JULIE HARRIS

The Broadway community mourns the loss of celebrated stage, screen and television actress Julie Harris, who passed away on Saturday at age 87. The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in her memory tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 28th, at exactly 7:45 p.m. for one minute.

Julie Harris was one of the most admired performers of her generation, widely acclaimed for her work on small screens and large ones, but most especially in the theatre where her career lasted more than six decades. She won five Tony Awardsâ, three Emmy Awards, a Grammy Award, and was nominated for an Academy Award. She was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1994, a Special Tony Award in 2002, and in 2005 she was a Kennedy Center honoree.

She was the first person to win five Tony Awards for performance (Angela Lansbury and Audra McDonald have since won five each) and was nominated ten times, the most ever for a performer. Her Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre made a total of six Tony Awards.

“Julie Harris was an actor’s actor, universally admired and respected. There was always an innate truth in the characters she portrayed,” said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League. “She was a Broadway virtuoso who touched many lives throughout nearly six decades of extraordinary performances. Julie Harris was the first performer to win five Tony Awards, and later received a special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. She was nominated ten times, the most ever for a performer. Seeing her on stage was always the kind of experience that takes your breath away in the most subtle and satisfying way. Generations of fans discovered her on Broadway and in various mediums, and our thoughts are with them, her friends, and her family.”

The first of Ms. Harris’s five Tony Awards came for creating the role of Sally Bowles in I am a Camera in 1952, which playwright John van Druten adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin and later became the source material for the musical Cabaret. Her second came in 1956 for her performance as St. Joan in Jean Anouilh's The Lark, a third in 1969 for Forty Carats, followed four years later for The Last of Mrs. Lincoln. She won her fifth Tony in 1977 for William Luce’s one-woman play The Belle of Amherst. She received five additional nominations, for her work in Marathon ’33, Lucifer's Child, The Au Pair Man, a revival of The Gin Game, and the musical Skyscraper.

She made her Broadway debut in 1945 in It's a Gift and went on to appear in more than 30 Broadway productions. She also toured North America in numerous plays including Lettice and Lovage, The Belle of Amherst, Driving Miss Daisy and The Gin Game.

Throughout her career, Ms. Harris was drawn to historical figures. Three of her Tony Awards came from portraying characters from real life. In 1955, she won her second Tony in The Lark, an adaptation by Lillian Hellman of Anouilh’s retelling of the martyrdom of Joan of Arc, leading a cast that included Christopher Plummer, Boris Karloff and Joseph Wiseman. In December 1972, she opened in The Last of Mrs. Lincoln, a play by James Prideaux. Ms. Harris portrayed the poet Emily Dickinson and more than a dozen other characters in The Belle of Amherst, a one-woman show written by William Luce that appeared on Broadway in 1976, followed by a national tour. The show was filmed for public television, and she received a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Recording for the audio recording of the play.

Her final two Broadway performances were in Tennessee Williams’s The Glass Menagerie, in which she played Amanda Wingfield in 1994; and opposite Charles Durning in D. L. Coburn’s The Gin Game three years later. She had previously starred alongside Durning in another two-person play, Hugh Leonard’s The Au Pair Man, in 1973, receiving Tony nominations both times.

Away from Broadway, she played Juliet at the Stratford Festival in Canada, Ophelia in the New York Shakespeare Festival’s Hamlet in Central Park and Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire on Cape Cod, to list just a few of her many credits.

Ms. Harris’s screen debut came in 1952 when she repeated her Broadway success as teenage girl Frankie in Carson McCullers’s The Member of the Wedding, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. She repeated her Tony-winning stage performance as Sally Bowles in the film version of I Am a Camera (1955). That year she appeared in Elia Kazan’s film of the John Steinbeck novel East of Eden with James Dean. Other film credits include Requiem for a Heavyweight, Harper with Paul Newman, The Haunting, Reflections in a Golden Eye, The Bell Jar, Gorillas in the Mist, The Hiding Place, HouseSitter, and the screen version of The Last of Mrs. Lincoln.

Her TV appearances brought her 11 Emmy Award nominations. She won for James Costigan’s “Little Moon of Alban,” a role she later reprised on Broadway; as Queen Victoria in “Victoria Regina”; and in 2000 for providing the voice of Susan B. Anthony in “Not for Ourselves Alone.” Her longest and best known TV role was in the 1980s, playing Lilimae Clements on the CBS series “Knots Landing.”

Other major TV roles included Nora in “A Doll’s House” and Eliza Doolittle in “Pygmalion,” both on the Hallmark Hall of Fame; and adaptations of The Heiress and The Belle of Amherst.

Numerous TV credits include appearances on “Scarlett,” “Secrets,” “The Christmas Wife” with Jason Robards, “The Christmas Tree,” “Ellen Foster,” and guest spots on a variety of popular dramas, comedies and romances, including “Family Ties, “The Love Boat, “Columbo, “The Name of the Game,” “Tarzan” and “Medical Center” and a remarkable number of westerns including “Rawhide,” “Laredo,” “Daniel Boone,” “The Big Valley,” “Bonanza,” and “The Virginian.”

She fought her way into the record business as a teenager and, by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll.  But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice.  Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history.   Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation.

Tickets for the San Francisco World Premiere go on sale this Friday, August 16th, and tickets for the Broadway Premiere of Beautiful will go on-sale in the coming weeks.  For more information, visit www.beautifulonbroadway.com.

BROADWAY TO DIM ITS LIGHTS WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 8PM

IN MEMORY OF LEGENDARY THEATRICAL PUBLICIST SHIRLEY HERZ

New York, August 12:-- The Broadway community mourns the loss of celebrated theatrical publicist Shirley Herz, who passed away on Sunday at age 87. The marquees of Broadway theatres in New York will be dimmed in her memory on Wednesday, August 14th, at exactly 8:00 p.m. for one minute.

During her nearly 65 years of working in the world of theatre, Shirley Herz received numerous honors: In 2009, she was awarded TonyâHonors for Excellence in the Theatre, given to “individuals that have demonstrated extraordinary achievement in theater but are not eligible in any of the established Tony categories." A year later, she received the Theatre Hall of Fame Founders Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Theatre. In 2008, the Manhattan Theatre Club named the lobby of its Broadway home (The Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on West 47th St.) the “Shirley Herz and Bob Ullman Lobby.” Mr. Ullman is a longtime colleague.

“Shirley Herz was a legendary theatrical publicist who was honored by many including the Tony Awardsâduring her long and extraordinary career on Broadway,” said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of the Broadway League. “In addition to publicizing many of Broadway’s most iconic shows for nearly 65 years, she was a fascinating person who lived a fascinating life; always passionate about her chosen profession. A well-respected mentor and leader, she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to her family, friends and colleagues.”

She worked on nearly 100 original Broadway plays, revivals, and musicals, including Do Re Me, 3 Penny Opera, Jerry’s Girls, Perfectly Frank, Legs Diamond, La Cage aux Folles, Gypsy starring Tyne Daly, The Royal Family, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Singin’ in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof, On Golden Pond, Oh! Calcutta! and Dancing at Lughnasa.

Ms. Herz became Rosalind Russell's personal press representative after their long tour of Bell, Book and Candle, and a Broadway run of Wonderful Town (1953). As an apprentice to Broadway publicity legend Dorothy Ross, she worked on House of Flowers, a 1954 musical by Harold Arlen with book by Truman Capote, and a cast that included Pearl Bailey, and newcomers Diahann Carroll, Carmen de Lavallade, Geoffrey Holder and Alvin Ailey. Working with Bill Doll, another publicist, she represented the legendary performer Josephine Baker.

In 1971, she launched her own agency, Shirley Herz Associates. As a longtime member of the Association of Theatrical Press Agents and Managers (ATPAM), she served on its Board of Governors for decades. She was a member of The Broadway League and also served on the board of the nonprofit Dorothy Strelsin Foundation.

Longtime clients include Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly and producer Barry Brown. Other clients were Zoe Caldwell, Colleen Dewhurst, Arthur Laurents, June Havoc, Fritz Holt, Rosemary Harris, Ellis Rabb, Julie Harris, Eva Le Gallienne, Peter Allen, Tallulah Bankhead, and many more.

The many writers whose productions Ms. Herz publicized included Edward Albee, Brian Friel, Frank McGuinness, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Sam Shepard, Harvey Fierstein and Jerry Herman.

Among Off-Broadway companies, she represented The Irish Repertory Theatre, Abingdon Theatre Company, The Living Theatre and Theater Breaking Through Barriers; in 1984, she opened Charles Busch's Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, his first hit show.

Her vast resume contained a number of productions that performed all over the country: dance companies as varied as the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Vail, CO., The Feld, San Francisco Ballet, among others, as well as numerous companies at The Joyce Theater. She publicized the first U.S. engagement of the Moscow Circus, as well as World's Fairs, films, television, books, nightclubs, restaurants and many other projects.

Ms. Herz served on the American Theatre Wing’s Advisory Committee for more than 25 years. Through the decades, she donated her services for numerous AIDS benefits, including “Best of the Best” at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1985; “Angela Lansbury – A Celebration;” GMHC's “Mack and Mabel” concert; “Mr. Words – Ira Gershwin;” “Nothing Like a Dame;” and the historic reading of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” starring Uta Hagen.
