For those lucky enough to spend New Year’s Eve with Marilyn Maye at the Metropolitan Room, the rest of us will still have the pleasure of seeing the phenomenal Marilyn keep the party going with an exclusive five-show run of “Marilyn by Request,” from Thursday January 3 through Wednesday January 9. “Marilyn By Request,” in which Maye and her Billy Stritch-led band will create a new show each night based on audience requests, is sure to be a surprised-filled, super high-octane night.
Since she returned to New York in October 2006 after a 15-year absence, this amazing 84 year young performer has introduced an entirely new generation to a fun-loving performance style that once was the hallmark of large rooms and nightclubs across the country. She swings and sings the Great American Songbook with the best of them, recently wowing audiences with Michael Feinstein in their duo run at Feinstein’s this past September. She is a Master Class unto herself!
This is her 13th Metropolitan Room engagement. “The years have done little to diminish her amazing abilities,” states Frank Scheck of the NY Post. Michael Musto says in The Voice, “She’s singularly gifted.” “Marilyn Maye is pretty much every singer you ever wanted to hear!” writes Will Friedwald of The Wall Street Journal.
Marilyn Maye returns to the Metropolitan Room on New Year’s Eve for an unforgettable night called “The Biggest Party EVER.” Two shows — one at 7:30pm and a late show at 10:40pm. Then Marilyn extends her stay in New York for five nights in “Marilyn By Request” – Thursday through Sunday, January 3, 4, 5, 6 and again on Wednesday January 9, all at 7pm. The music charge is $35, with a two-drink minimum. For information, or to order online, visit www.metropolitanroom.com For reservations call 212/206-0440.
