F

or a time, I rejected the invitation to “come to the cabaret.” It just wasn’t my idea of entertainment. I thought it self-indulgent to sit in a small room listen-

ing to someone warble on about life, love and loss. Wasn’t it better to just roll the dice, get on with the business of living and loving, and leave the navel-gazing out of it? I’m happy to say that phase did not last long. As Brian Scott Lipton so thoroughly and enthusiastically lays out in his feature, beginning on p. 12, cabaret thrives in New York. But it always has. I remember as a kid passing through the lobbies of the city’s posher hotels and peeping through the locked doors of swanky in-house supper clubs that I was not yet old enough to enter and certainly not yet rich enough to afford. Magical, exotic places, like the Empire Room at the Waldorf-Astoria and the Persian Room at the Plaza, caught my attention and fired up my imagination. And what performers these clubs welcomed. A-list all the way. Lena Horne and Peggy Lee at the Empire Room. Kay Thompson (author of the “Eloise” books) and Hildegarde at the Persian Room. Make that The Incomparable Hildegarde, as the charming chanteuse was always known and for good reason. When cabaret finally seduced me, my seducers were Julie Wilson and Andrea Marcovicci at the Algonquin’s Oak Room, Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook at Café Carlyle, and the irrepressible Baby Jane Dexter at Eighty-Eights in the Village. Baby Jane, who died too soon this past May, possessed pipes that could blow a hole straight through your heart and a personality that held total strangers in a warm embrace. Her honesty and directness woke me up to the basic truth of cabaret: A great cabaret artist holds the proverbial mirror up to nature. And there’s no escaping what it reveals. But a great cabaret artist also has fun. Sophisticated fun. I’ll never forget Eartha Kitt shamelessly flirting with a man of advanced years one night at the Carlyle. She wrapped him around her little finger as easily as she wrapped her feather boa around his neck. When she sang “C’est si bon,” he blushed like a

THEATER NEWS by Harry Haun

Band on the Loose Let’s start with the name, a punctuation minefield for the uninitiated interviewer: Annie takes a hyphen, B drops a period and (unlike choreographer David Parsons) she‘s one Parson. But, put ‘em all together, and you have Annie-B Parson, an innovative envelope-pusher in her Broadway debut, musically staging and choreographing “David Byrne’s American Utopia” at the Hudson Theatre (141 W. 44th St., 855.801.5876). “My name isn’t a very fun story,” Annie-B confesses sheepishly. It’s something her two sisters slapped on her at an early age, and it stuck. The spelling, however, is hers—kindergarten primal. The theatrical concert experience she and Byrne have fashioned for songs from his same-named 2018 album, as well as his days as Talking Heads front man and his solo career, has already put in 144 shows all over the globe. As per Byrne’s edict, it’s a band in gray flannel suits. Two could sing and dance; the rest had to be brought into the dance world by Annie-B. “Nobody would mistake them for what we think of as trained dancers,” she concedes kinda proudly, “but isn’t that more expressive and beautiful?” Counting Byrne, there are 12 on stage—but not so you’d notice. “It was David’s concept to have a completely untethered band. The ubiquitous drum platform, standing mikes, cords, all the stuff we’re supposed to not notice in a rock band—that’s gone. It’s a minimalist aesthetic, very uncluttered. Suddenly freed musicians playing music—and dancing!—throughout the entire show is completely new for the Broadway sensibility. We’ve been thrilled to see how audiences feel about this.” Even critics are susceptible. London’s New Musical Express suggests it “may just be the best live show of all time.” This brings a smile to Annie-B’s face. “We’ll take that.”

The four Yanks who brought Matthew Lopez’s Olivier Award-winning gay epic, “The Inheritance,” to life in London, have returned stateside to do the same at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre (243 W. 47th St., 212.239.6200), bringing with them a British costar who, at 49, is bracing for his Broadway bow. Paul Hilton (below) appears older and more rickety on stage, playing a facsimile of the frail novelist, E.M. Forster, who here goes by his middle name, “Morgan,” which intimates called him in real life. Then, removing his spectacles and adjusting his accent, the actor becomes another character in the play—Walter, the lover of a rich Republican. “Morgan/Walter represent the heart, compassion and unconditional love of this play,” he says. As a lifelong closet case, was Forster’s own heart missing in action? “Yes and no,” Hilton answers sagely. “I think privately Morgan had a deep, loving relationship with [a man], but he was a victim of his time. He didn’t feel he could be honest in a public sphere about who he was, and, of course, that’s the tragedy.” The times they are a-changin’ in this play. They’re positively epoch-jumping, and the dress code runs from Edwardian tweeds to Upper West Side dungarees. One London scribe said “The Inheritance” is to take Forster’s novel “Howards End,” add AIDS-era “Angels in America” (Tony Kushner’s play), stir vigorously and serve in two-part, seven-hour doses. Hilton buys that. “There are plot parallels. If you see [the movie or read ] “Howards End” before you see our play, you will be rewarded.” Hilton had an immediate thunderbolt reaction to the play. “I never read anything that moved me so deeply and gripped me so intensely. It’s a long piece to read, and I read it in one sitting. At the end of it, I felt renewed, transformed. I felt I knew myself more than when I started to read the piece. I had an awakening and thought if this is what it’s doing to me as an actor reading it, the possibilities for an audience are immense.”

But Sir Ian has been celebrating his noteworthy birthday year by touring—and selling out—more than 80 theaters in his native UK. “Ian McKellen On Stage: With Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others … and You!” arrives in NYC (and here’s the heartbreak for theater lovers) for one night only, Nov. 5, at the Hudson Theatre (141 W. 44th St.,thehudsonbroadway.com).

UP Roses

Stage and screen siren Marisa Tomei revives one of Tennessee Williams’ more passionate heroines in ‘The Rose Tattoo’ BY DAVID COTE

SHE WON AN OSCAR at age 29 for her sassy, breakout role in “My Cousin Vinny” and has made 60-plus films since, but the adored (and ageless) Marisa Tomei has been choosier in her stage gigs. Over the past 21 years, she’s been on Broadway just five times; her current project is a revival of Tennessee Williams’ 1951 drama “The Rose Tattoo,” which runs at the Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre through Dec. 8. Tomei has brought her abundant sensuality and wit to Oscar Wilde and more avant-garde playwrights, such as Caryl Churchill and Will Eno, but “The Rose Tattoo” is notable as Tomei’s first foray into an American master of Williams’ stature. 10

IN NEW YORK | OCTOBER-NOVEMBER 2019 | INNEWYORK.COM

How did you get involved with “The Rose Tattoo”? Through Mandy Greenfield, the artistic director of Williamstown Theatre Festival. I really wanted to do something up there. So we started talking, and thought about this play. We ended up doing a two-week workshop in Williamstown, just playing around with the text, and I got to have a wonderful summer and fall in love with the play even more deeply. What can you tell me about Serafina? How does she compare with other Tennessee Williams heroines like Amanda Wingfield or Blanche DuBois? She has things in common with Blanche: a level of sexual frustration and cultural repression in her life. Like Blanche, she experiences great loss, is damaged by it and isn’t able to move ahead sexually in a relationship. And there’s also immense cultural pressure for a female to behave only a certain way, especially regarding sexuality. Like Amanda in “The Glass Menagerie,” Serafina is also a very strong mother. She’s a loving, attentive mother. Well, attentive until grief has overtaken her life. And that same budding, Dionysian, ecstatic sensuality that’s coming up in her daughter, Rosa, is threatening on a really primal level to Serafina. On the page, Serafina is a force of nature: moody, volcanic, almost operatic. This was a different time period, without screens and cellphones, where neighborhoods were very, very intimate— almost too intimate for comfort. And the way that human beings could express themselves and were more in touch with their emotions and passions—almost in a queer way—belongs to another time, sadly. What feels relevant is the play’s exploration of the immigrant experience—for Italians. Very much so. It’s always a different group, the most recent group, that’s going to receive the vitriol; and at that time, it was Italians. The play takes place around 1950, and for people in Louisiana and that region, there would be a strong memory of the biggest mob lynching that had happened in New

Coming

It may also be her most emotionally extreme to date. Tomei plays Serafina, an Italian immigrant living in the small-town South, along the Gulf Coast circa 1950. Serafina works as a seamstress, while her husband is a truck driver who ferries illegal goods. After he dies in a suspicious accident, the widow descends into a spiral of grief and depression. When Serafina’s teenage daughter, Rosa, embarks on an affair with a sailor, the overprotective mother goes into crisis mode. Complicating matters, Serafina becomes entranced with another hunky Italian trucker who appears at her doorstep. Can Serafina find love again, or is it merely lust and loneliness? Tomei spoke to IN New York about bringing a lesser-known Williams heroine to life, her surprisingly sexy Aunt May in the “Spider-Man” movie franchise and immigration in America.


Orleans up to that point—11 Italians in 1891. So, after that massive wave of integration at the turn of the century, Serafina is part of the second wave, after Italy’s Fascist period. Italians were called derogatory names, threatened with jail or deportation, made fun of. And there is a very interesting trajectory of assimilating into “whiteness” that takes place over the decades to different extents with different groups. That’s something you see with Italians, because initially, they were considered another race—not black, not white—and people didn’t know what to do with them. It was a minefield for them and for their children. Some people may know the 1955 “Rose Tattoo” film with Anna Magnani and Burt Lancaster. Have you seen it? Oh, of course. I saw it many years ago and no, I haven’t been referring to it. The play has a different act structure and tone; there’s a lot more comedy in the play. Anna Magnani is one of my favorite actresses of all time, but I have to put [the movie] to the side to move forward in the play. Speaking of the influence of other actresses, this year you played Edith Bunker in a live TV broadcast of an episode of “All in the Family” on ABC. How did you negotiate Jean

Stapleton’s original Edith and make the role your own? Norman Lear asked us to go back to the script and just work from it as if we were given it today. And so I worked from that point, and when I felt ready, I communed with Jean, and kind of blended our energies. Being a born and bred New Yorker, you had an advantage. But I’m from Brooklyn, not Queens! True. Still, there’s another Queens character you’ve reinvented: Aunt May in the “Spider-Man” movies. In “Homecoming” and “Far From Home,” everyone loves your “young and sexy” take on Aunt May. When is she getting her own franchise? Why don’t you start the rumor? An Aunt May Movie petition? Yeah, I don’t believe that’s in the works. But one never knows! Have you been to New York Comic Con? Sadly, they didn’t invite me! I was pretty upset about that. A slightly facetious question. Since tattoos figure heavily in the show—Serafina’s husband has a rose tattoo on his chest— do you have any? Let’s avoid the facetious. Yeah, I have them.

NEW YORK “I live in Los Angeles, but when I’m in New York I go to plays on and off Broadway. And I bike around. Now that we’re getting more Citi Bike docks in more neighborhoods, that makes it easier. It’s such a lovely and quick way to get around. Also, I would suggest the Rubin Museum, on Seventh Avenue, for Tibetan art. It’s an oasis, and they have a lovely café there.”

I LOVE THE Cabaret is alive and well in NYC By Brian Scott Lipton

MENTION THE WORDS “a night on the town” to most visitors—or even most New Yorkers—and they’ll immediately talk about which Broadway show, which trendy cocktail lounge or which restaurant du jour they are planning to check out. While I’m not disparaging any of these fine options, I always counter with “Have you considered checking out a cabaret?” Far from a dying art form, cabaret has exPHOTO: ALAN CUMMING AT CLUB CUMMING, COURTESY CLUB CUMMING

BIRDLAND This revered Midtown club recently expanded to two levels with a cozy downstairs theater, giving dedicated patrons the opportunity to see as many as three shows a night (and to indulge in some fine food and drink while there). You probably can’t go wrong no matter who you choose to see, but surefire bets include the club’s popular open-mic “Cast Party,” hosted by Jim Caruso, which occurs every Monday and often features surprise appearances from some of the world’s biggest stars (Liza! Chita!); the Tuesday night variety show “The Lineup,” hosted by the hilarious Susie Mosher; the sublime Natalie Douglas, Birdland’s reigning queen, whose “tribute” show to Barbra Streisand (Oct. 28) is a guaranteed wow; and such jazz superstars as bassist Ron Carter (Oct. 15-26), singer Gabrielle Stravelli (Oct. 25-26), and guitarists Jay Leonhart (Oct. 26) and Frank Vignola (Nov. 7-9). 315 W. 44th St., 212.581.3080, birdlandjazz.com

nowned throughout the world for its stunning and colorful music-themed murals created by French artist Marcel Vertès. In recent years, though, the club’s programming has strayed, at times, from its ultra-traditional history to include acts like country great Wynonna Judd and husband Cactus Moser (Oct. 15-19) and award-winning actress/singer Mare Winningham (Oct. 29-Nov. 2). Still, it’s two married couples who really rule this regal roost season after season: guitarist extraordinaire John Pizzarelli and sultry singer Jessica Molaskey (Nov. 5-9, 12-16) and music legend Herb Alpert and singer Lani Hall (Nov. 19-23, 26-30). 35 E. 76th St., 800.405.2027, cafecarlylenewyork.com

CLUB CUMMING This two-year-old club, the brainchild of award-winning actor Alan Cumming and nightlife impresario Daniel Nardicio, has quickly become the go-to-spot for seekers of great music in a less buttoned-up setting than many of Gotham’s more staid venues. Crowds definitely flock to “Mondays in the Club with Lance,” a fantastic open-mic evening led by the multitalented Lance Horne. Starting this month, the show is now preceded by a new weekly series called “Club Cumming Cabaret” that features some of the city’s best up-and-coming talent. Do come! 505 E. 6th St., 917.265.8006, clubcummingnyc.com

FEINSTEIN’S/54 BELOW Since opening its doors in 2012, this spectacularly designed supper club (by Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty) has become one of New York’s most valued nightlife resources, combining a slate of Broadway bigwigs, innovative tributes and vivacious variety shows with a delightful menu of specialty cocktails and irresistible eats. (Trust me, the fabled bacon mac ’n’ cheese is worth every calorie and the french fries are better than McDonald’s.) Incandescent Broadway superstar and multiple Tony winner Chita Rivera closes out her gig (Oct. 15-16), after which the marvelous Marilyn Maye, one of the house’s most beloved acts, returns for an-

other sure-to-be-sold-out engagement (Oct. 17-26). Meanwhile, other great shows to consider include Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker (Oct. 30-31), Carole J. Bufford (Nov. 2), Ryan McCartan (Nov. 4 and 11), Lainie Kazan (Nov. 6), Melissa Errico (Nov. 7-9) and Tony Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell (Nov. 12-23).

THE GREEN ROOM 42 Tucked away in the back of the fourth floor of the Yotel hotel, this beautiful boîte provides everything you really want in a cabaret: affordable yet yummy food and drink (I love the flatbreads and burger), excellent sound and sight lines wherever you sit, and an almost dizzying array of acts, many of which are favorites of the under-40 crowd. For example, Reeve Carney (Oct. 20 and Nov. 17) has made this place his home-away-from-home as has his co-star in the Broadway musical “Hadestown” Eva Noblezada (Oct. 27 and Nov. 11). So have pop/jazz crooner Spencer Day (Nov. 2) and rising star Mark William who sings from the Great American Songbook (Nov. 22).

THE NEW YORK CABARET CONVENTION

This belowground Times Square club, which initially gained fame as the performing home of the late, great guitarist Les Paul, boasts a relaxed vibe, solid comfort food and an unusually large gamut of eclectic acts, including 1970s heartthrob Gino Vannelli (Oct. 16-17), songstress Macy Gray (Oct. 20-21), the Harlem Blues Project (Oct. 24 and Nov. 12) and the Ed Palermo Big Band (Oct. 28). There is truly something for everyone here! 1650 Broadway, 212.582.2121, theiridium.com

Hands down, the most amazing way to take in the ultimate in NYC’s cabaret scene is to spend four nights at Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center (located on the fifth floor of the Time Warner Center) for the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s annual New York Cabaret Convention (Oct. 28-31). Over 50 incredible entertainers perform during this year’s event, including the ever-extraordinary Andrea Marcovicci and handsome Jeff Harnar (co-hosting a tribute to Frank Loesser), Karen Akers, Christine Andreas, Liz Callaway, Darius de Haas, Tovah Feldshuh, Karen Mason, KT Sullivan … and the beat (and the list) goes on. Broadway and W. 60th St., 212.721.6500, mabelmercer.org

JOE’S PUB Sure, the seating may be a little snug at this gorgeous space inside the venerated Public Theater, but it’s never too close for comfort. And, as is typical of the Public, the programming is among the most adventurous and satisfying in New York. Upcoming highlights include the one-and-only Penny Arcade (Oct. 15 and 24), Bridget Everett and the Tender Moments (Oct. 25-26), Joey Arias singing “Halloween Lullabies” (Oct. 30); The Rocky Horror Skivvies Show (Oct. 31), Sophie B.

re you a closet singer or a night owl? Then you need to explore the active karaoke scene happening in Koreatown. Centered on one block of W. 32nd Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, Koreatown is filled with scores of nightclubs, where private karaoke rooms let you sing to your heart’s content until the early hours of the morning. Unlike American karaoke, Korean karaoke is a much more personal affair, with bottle service at reasonable prices, Korean snacks and thousands of international songs to choose from. The clubs offer hourly rates, usually around $30-$50 per hour for a karaoke room for four people, with an additional per person charge. Larger rooms can generally hold between 20 and 40 people, starting at $80 per room. Two microphones, comfortable seating and several screens with easy-to-follow lyrics and a background of Korean videos complete the setting. Most clubs open mid-afternoon and stay open until 4 am on weekends, and until 2 am or 3 am during the week. Reservations are accepted at many, either by phone or online. It’s easy to make a full night of your Koreatown music immersion. Start with a barbecue dinner at any of the quick cook-atyour-table dining spots like Miss Korea, Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong or Jongro BBQ; grab a coffee or bubble tea for fortification at French-Asian bakeries Tous les Jours, Grace Street or Paris Baguette; and pick your musical destination. Most of the karaoke clubs are located—almost hidden—in nondescript office buildings. You take an elevator up and exit into a world of laser lights, neon-decked bars and private rooms. A greeter will show you the ropes, so there’s no need to feel intimidated. Some of the clubs are fairly basic and are priced accordingly. Gagopa Karaoke (28 W. 32nd St., 212.967.5353) is BYOB, so you skip the bottle fee altogether. It’s a good training ground if you’re a little shy and don’t want to spend a lot of money.

New kid on the block, Karaoke City (22 W. 32nd St., 646.791.8318) is also one of the largest with multiple private rooms so you can test your skills squirreled away before you go public in the “open” room. It’s also a sports bar, if you decide not to sing. Others have very loose themes, like MK Karaoke (11 W. 32nd St., 212.564.3436), which riffs on a “card” theme with aces and spades gracing doorways along with quirky Banksy-ish graffiti. Or, check out one of my favorites, space-agey Chorus (25 W. 32nd St., 212.967.2244), with its public karaoke lounge, a rarity in Koreatown. Music fans will love the Rolling Stones room at Karaoke Wow! (10 W. 32nd St., 646.454.1777) or the Beatles room at Turntable LP Bar & Karaoke (34-36 W. 32nd St., 212.594.4344), both filled with posters, records and other paraphernalia. Other hot spots are the techy and colorful 5 Bar Karaoke Lounge (38 W. 32nd St., 212.594.6644) and The Spot Karaoke & Lounge (34 W. 32nd St., 212.564.6600). With so many choices you can spend an evening moving from place to place. Or just drop anchor at the most spacious and airy karaoke bar of all, Maru (11 W. 32nd St., 212.273.3413), which expands from one floor with an extensive red and white lounge and private rooms to two floors on the weekend, with a live DJ and more party space. Want a nightcap? Space Karaoke Bar (34 W. 32nd St., 646.756.4206) will keep those singing chops going late into the night. Stop off for a round of pool at sister venue one floor up, Space Billiard Café (212.239.4166), for some really late-night action. For well-deserved refreshment after your performances, a flavored soju (stronger than sake) and a bite at Starry Night (28 W. 33rd St., 212.868.3392)—open until 4 am on weekends and where images of Korean icon Psy (“Gangnam Style”) mingle with other kitschy artwork—will satisfy. —Meryl Pearlstein
