Meri Ziev’s Acclaimed, Zoom-Created Cabaret “New Words” Celebrates Life and Language at Don’t Tell Mama January 29 and 30, 2022
NEW YORK CITY – Back by popular demand after her sold-out debut, Meri Ziev’s cabaret “New Words” returns for two more performances at Don’t Tell Mama, 343 W 46th St (between 8th & 9th Ave) NYC, on January 29th and 30th at 7:00 p.m. Broadway World Cabaret Award Nominee Meri Ziev found a silver lining – immersing herself online in master classes, musical collaborations, virtual open-mics, and performing driveway concerts for friends and neighbors. The result of these non-conventional artistic pursuits led to “New Words,” which explores themes from generational gaps to the gift of communication, featuring songs from a wide range of genres from standards to rock and roll. “New Words” celebrates the power of words in the lyrics and music of songs from Consuelo Velazquez to Jimmy Eats World, as well as fresh arrangements – from ‘House of the Rising Sun’ based on her work with children who have special needs, to the joy of reunions – ‘The Nearness of You.’
“Meri Ziev has golden pipes, is a compelling storyteller, and her lovely show ‘New Words’ is a heartfelt self-portrait full of surprises.” – Jeff Harnar, Multiple Award Winning New York Cabaret, Concert and Recording Artist
