Tonight, at the High Line Ballroom. I've seen him at Castle Clinton and last fall at the Village Vanguard. Taking a night off from the show to listen to some jazz, baby. High Line has been programming some great stuff recently - a week ago I saw the great McCoy Tyner there.
Recordings are great, but no substitute for live music.

Coming up...my new show. It's based loosely on Euripides' "Iphigenia in Tauris." And "Twelfth Night." And honestly, there's some Simpsons in there. Also Abbott and Costello. And a bit from Mary Tyler Moore. And "Valley of the Dolls." And yes, it's for kids. Stop making that sound. It is so for kids. Not everything I write is about doing terrible things to babies. I have facets.
It's "Effie Jean in Tahiti," with music and lyrics by Stephen Speights, frequent collaborator & Blue Coyote guy. This is the first time he's done music on a show of mine, though, since "A Bush Carol" about six years ago. We've got a great cast, choreography by Jonathan Hollander of Battery Dance, and we're all pretty excited.
So here's the info.
And here's where you buy tickets.
