Kahn Artist: Madeline And Me in NYC

September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


BACK to NYC! Nominated for “Best NY Debut-Female” at 2024 MAC Awards.

“I found the show to be quite moving and, definitely, intelligent. I highly recommend seeing it if/when it next comes your way.” — Mark Dundas Wood, Bistro Bits.

Well, it’s coming your way! Again!

Eden Casteel was a frustrated teenage soprano in Ohio whose life was forever changed by a Madeline Kahn beer commercial (it was Michelob). In 30 seconds, Casteel knew she wanted to be like Kahn: ”Wealthy, glamorous, with an unbelieveable singing voice.” (Two out of three ain’t bad!) Kahn, of course, was the beloved star of some of Mel Brooks’ most popular movies (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein). Filled with iconic songs, compelling stories, and hilarious anectdotes, KAHN ARTIST: MADELINE AND ME is an intimate look at the trials and triumphs of both Kahn and Casteel.  With John M. Cook, piano. Directed by Faith Prince, cowritten with Roderick Ferguson, with musical arrangements by Jim Rice and Bobby Peaco.

At Don’t Tell Mama, 343 W. 46th St., NYC. $25 General, $20 for MAC Members. $20 Food/drink purchase required. Food Menu available.

A “stunning coloratura soprano” with “a great sense of comic timing,” Eden Casteel is a go-to performer, pianist, and vocal coach who writes, plays, and directs cabarets and showcases for performers nationwide. Along with Dan Chaika, Eden was the winner of Best Novelty/Comedy Song at the 2024 MAC Awards for “What Are You Doing Rosh Hashanah Eve?” A native of Dublin, Ohio who moved to Rhode Island in 2010, Eden’s favorite regional theater roles include The Proprietor in Assassins, Adele in Die Fledermaus, Yum-Yum in The Mikado, Mama Rose in Gypsy, Victoria Grant in Victor/Victoria, and Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd. Eden’s album with Providence-based jazz/blues/roots quartet Evening Sky debuted in 2023. Click here for links to more info about Eden, and more shows.
