A little bit of Broadway comes to the Hamptons in a series of cabaret performances at Southampton Arts Center later this summer.
“Songbook Salon” features three artists who will be performing Broadway and American pop classics in this musical series presented in a partnership with Guild Hall.
The first performance will be on Saturday, July 5. Melissa Errico, described as a “Broadway firecracker,” will be singing a number of theater classics. Selections include show tunes from Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim and Stephen Schwartz, just to name a few. Tedd Firth serves as musical director for the evening.
On Sunday, August 3, the spotlight will be on monumental pop music in “An Evening with Maureen McGovern: Celebrating Iconic American Singers/Songwriters.” Artists highlighted include James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, Bob Dylan and Carole King. Expected selections for the performance feature “Baby Boomer coming-of-age greatest hits” such as “Fire and Rain,” “I Feel the Earth Move” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.”
McGovern is a critically acclaimed performer, recently receiving rave reviews from The New York Times.
The series concludes Sunday, August 30, with a performance from Broadway star Adam Pascal. This seasoned actor was in the original Broadway cast of Rent, as well as the 2005 movie adaptation and 2009 national tour. Pascal also starred as Radames in Aida and the Emcee in the 1998 revival of Cabaret. Most recently, Pascal performed in the Broadway production of Memphis.
All three performances will have 8 p.m. start times. Tickets are $60 for general admission and $58 for members of Guild Hall. VIP Premium tickets are also available for $85 at each performance. VIPs will get access to a post-show meet and greet with the featured performer. Tickets are now available online at guildhall.org.
