Every Thursday night at 11 PM Broadway Ballyhoo: A Show Tune Hootenanny! will offer approximately four different stars each week who will sing Broadway's great songs. This ever-changing cast of stars will sing the show tunes they know and love best. Jesse Kissel is the musical director and Scott Siegel hosts!
One of Broadway's greatest stars will join forces with an authority on all things Broadway for an extraordinary evening of music and merriment. For the first time in New York City, two-time Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award winner Patti LuPone will revisit some of the iconic roles of her illustrious career, and Seth Rudetsky, the host of Seth's Big Fat Broadway on SiriusXM, will deconstruct them as only he can do. After acclaimed performances together across the U.S. and in London, the pair's unscripted evening will include stories LuPone hasn't talked about anywhere else and would share only at the prompting of Rudetsky. Proceeds from the event will benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway. We all know it. We all love it. Distorted Broadway asks and answers the simple question: What if your favorite Broadway shows didn't end up being quite what you expected? What if Avenue Q really turned out to be a ballet about south Brooklyn or if Jersey Boys was about the Jersey Shore? What would Oklahomo, Trannie, The Queen & I, The Book of Morons, or West Village Story be like? And what the heck does "Turn Off The Dark" mean, anyway? Find out in this truly wicked 70-minute, non-stop musical theater tribute, where everything gets twisted -- even the happy ending!
Distorted Diznee is an outrageous Las Vegas-style parody revue of some of America's most beloved animated classics. Come be Part of Our World as a troupe of fabulous drag queens takes you on a twisted -- and very adult -- journey, catapulting you back to your childhood into a Magical Kingdom where dreams come true. This ever-evolving 75-minute non-stop extravaganza features high-energy dance numbers, comedy, dazzling costumes and lip-syncing "ladies"-- with a bit of Cher, Patti LuPone, Idina Menzel and Rihanna thrown in for good measure! This show is certain to offer a happy ending -- if you believe in fairies, that is!

Anthony Wayne (Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical, Broadway's Pippin, Anything Goes, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) will make his New York City solo cabaret debut later this month in The Evolution of Anthony Wayne.
Having created his opportunity to step out of the chorus line in Mighty Real, Anthony Wayne now steps into the spotlight as himself in an eclectic evening of song covering everything from Broadway to R&B to Funk. Featuring songs by artists from Stephen Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz to Burt Bacharach, Katy Perry and Michael Jackson, Wayne (who will celebrate his birthday on June 30th) will take the audience on an inspirational, evolutionary journey that's totally fresh… and "Fabulous."
Jim Caruso's Cast Party, a popular weekly event on Monday nights, is now at Birdland!
"No one can be called a true New Yorker until they've been to the Cast Party, which is to Broadway what the Conde-Nast cafeteria is to publishing. Divas and dapper-dans insouciantly sip cocktails while watching each other sing and perform at the open-mic event during Broadway's dark night," says Next Magazine. Broadway impresario Jim Caruso hosts a combination open-mic, networking event and party in which the biggest stars on Broadway relax on their night off by performing their favorite songs in an informal setting. Performers are accompanied by Billy Stritch, pianist and musical director for Liza Minnelli and Charles Aznavour.
Katie travels through the decades, from the 1940s to the 2010s, on a quest to understand how Broadway's leading ladies have changed over time. For example, what makes a Rodgers & Hammerstein heroine different from a Sondheim heroine? How do our favorite female characters navigate the world of relationships in similar and different ways? Katie sings songs from a range of beloved musicals, including Oklahoma!, South Pacific, Bells Are Ringing, Sweet Charity, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, and many more.
Laura Ainsworth grew up watching her dad, renowned big band musician Billy Ainsworth, back such idols as Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme. Today, she keeps the family tradition alive in a style critics have dubbed "new vintage," mixing classic lounge jazz with modern touches to create her own twist on standards and lost gems of the Great American Songbook. Her smooth, sultry vocals have been compared to such mid-century chanteuses as Dinah Shore, Julie London and Jo Stafford. Her albums Keep It To Yourself and Necessary Evil have earned critical raves and worldwide airplay, and she has performed from Las Vegas to India.
The Metropolitan Room is proud to present the New York solo debut of this elegant Texas songbird, in celebration of her highly-anticipated third album, New Vintage and a best-of audiophile vinyl LP, Top Shelf. Joining her will be her producer/pianist extraordinaire, 2012 "Dallas Jazz Musician of the Year" Brian Piper of the N'Awlins Gumbo Kings.
Drag queens serve up dinner, outrageousness, and a show at Lucky Cheng's Restaurant. The show features comedy, karaoke, and — embrace yourself — interactive cabaret. The cross-dressed staff are anything but a drag; they enhance the fun as your bartenders, waitresses, and performers. After 19 years in downtown Manhattan, this dinner show transferred in 2012 to the Times Square area, where the shenanigans continue today.
Porter Carroll, Jr of Hall & Oates and Atlantic star, along with The Tambourine Band featuring Wali Ali, Eric Perez, Danny Obadia & Kevin Hill begin their much anticipated Residency at the Metropolitan Room in Manhattan. It's the ultimate baby boomers musical buffet; the Contemporary American songbook tantalizingly reworked into something fresh, imaginative and ultramodern, while constantly reflecting the roots of these sophisticated and powerful players. The entire show runs the gamut from R& B and improvisational Jazz to soul,funk,blues, rock & roll and more. It is a bold and daring nightclub act for the modern world.
Be ready for an evening of Russian classics (including Fiddler on the Roof, Jewish songs, Yiddish, Katyusha, Tsiganes, Gypsy, and more) with stand-up comedy and audience interaction with David Serero.
Suzanna Ross will be singing at the Metropolitan Room in a repeat performance. Drawing from the American, French, and British songbooks, Suzanna weaves a vibrant spell that combines old-style romance with a jazzy contemporary flair. Songs include American tunes, French classics, '60s and '70s pop, and movie favorites. The songs are from the lists of Diana Krall, Sting, Edith Piaf, British pop legend Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach, Michel Legrand, French pop legend Francoise Hardy, and more.
With a smooth style that creates an intimate evening, Suzanna is known for a warm, sometimes smoky sound that lends itself to lush melodies and lyrics sung in both English and French. She will be accompanied by her quartet of musicians from the New York City and European scenes. A few songs on the list take a poetic turn with accompaniment by flute and clarinet, which at times suggest the feel of a chanteuse singing stories of love in a Paris café of yesteryear.
