Andrea Axelrod’s “My City” at DTM
December 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:10 pm$15
MAC-nominee Andrea Axelrod returns to Don’t Tell Mama with My City, a new show reflecting her love of a vanishing, mythologized New York – her city — on Tuesday, November 28, 2023 at 7 and Sunday, December 3, 2023 at 3.
John M. Cook is music director, pianist and occasional singer in this celebration of Axelrod’s love/hate relationship with the city of her birth.
My City’s song list reflects Axelrod’s knack for finding unusual material, her roots as a classically trained singer, links between songs and personal history, and, along with Cook, ability to update lyrics.
The show includes several songs by Rodgers & Hart – Axelrod’s flagbearers for the New York she loves – plus: Leonard Bernstein with Comden & Green; Marc Blitzstein; William Bolcom with Arnold Weinstein and Arthur Miller; Hoagie Carmichael and (surprisingly) Rudy Vallee; Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields; Sam Davis and Randy Buck; Roger Eden, Ralph Blane and Hugh Martin; Peter Nero and Carol Coates; Burton Lane and E.Y. Harburg; Stephen Sondheim; Charles Strouse; Jule Styne, with Sammy Cahn and with Bob Hilliard; Kurt Weill and Langston Hughes; and Geoffrey Wright with Diana Morgan and Robert McDermot.
$20 cover ($15 for MAC members) + $20 minimum | cash only
