I made my Joe's Pub debut in Nora York's latest cabaret, Private in Public, performing as an actor, soloist, and ensemble member. The evening was music directed and played by Jamie Lawrence, with choreography by Barbara Allen. My big number involved a mixture of Shakespeare, Ben Folds, and personal storytelling. Video to come (hopefully) soon, but for the time being, you're just going to have to imagine that one...
Here's how the evening was billed:
"Emerging artists from the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music and the Tisch Department of Drama come together for an evening of music and stories. Drawing from personal experiences, current events, and a combination of favorite and original songs, they will give voice to the hopes, dreams, and fears we all notice, but can so easily ignore in the chaos of the city.
Directed by Joe’s Pub favorite Nora York with her collaborator pianist composer Jamie Lawrence along with choreographer Barbara Allen, you can expect to catch a glimpse of tomorrow’s brightest stars."
