Two-time Tony-winning actress, singer and dancer Sutton Foster returns to Café Carlyle, June 11-29. The New York Times praised her previous residency: “The radiance of Julia Roberts and the zany spunk of Holly Golightly: that only begins to describe the seductive charms of Sutton Foster in her irresistible cabaret show.” At Café Carlyle, she’ll perform Broadway favorites and original recordings, focusing on selections from her new album, Take Me to the World, and stories of how being a mother of a two-year-old has informed her work and changed her life.
Isaac Mizrahi returns to Café Carlyle for three special performances titled Isaac & on June 10, June 17, and June 24. Isaac’s previous three residencies in the room were sellouts, receiving widespread critical acclaim. He’ll be joined by his band of jazz musicians, led by Ben Waltzer, for an evening of eclectic tunes and charming storytelling. Each night a well-known friend will join him on stage for a few songs and banter. With a fresh stock of swag items to re-gift to audience members and a wealth of commentary on everything from prescription drugs to obsession with social media, audiences are sure to be delighted by this “founding father of Alt Cabaret,” according to the New York Times.

Her two novels (Him Her Him Again The End of Him and Starting From Happy) were Thurber Prize Finalists. She was the first woman on the Harvard Lampoon and a recipient of a 2015 Guggenheim Fellowship. Mainly she does errands and looks things up on Wikipedia. She can take a baked potato out of the oven with her bare hand.
Roz Chast was born in Brooklyn, New York. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a B.F.A. in painting in 1977. Her cartoons and covers have appeared continuously in The New Yorker since 1978. She has published several cartoon collections and has written and illustrated several children’s books. Her graphic memoir chronicling her parents’ final years, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant,? won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the inaugural Kirkus Prize, and was short-listed for a National Book Award in 2014.

Roz and Patty are the only surviving members of the two person-band The NUKES formerly Ukelear Meltdown, formerly The Daily Pukuleles. They specialize in rewriting the lyrics of public domain songs to make them worse. In Patty and Roz’s minds, their band is more famous than The Cowsills.
