7:30pm: Jamie deRoy & friends presents Treasures From the Archives Airing Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 7:30. 

This episode starts off with rare archival footage of Jamie deRoy at Upstairs at Greene Street. On February 7, 1985, Sylvia Miles brought her filmmaker friend Nelson Sullivan (March 5 1948- July 4, 1989) who asked if he could film the performance. Not only did he capture her entire performance, a rarity in 1985, but one of Jamie’s favorite ad libs, that was said prior to her singing Weeden and Finkle’s song: I Don’t Have to Know How Rotten You Are To Love You! 

You will be also treated to performances by Paul Balfour at Steve McGraw’s from May 31, 1990, David Campbell at Don’t Tell Mama from the show on November 20, 1998 and Mary Bond Davis at The Metropolitan Room filmed on June 28, 2006. 

Also an appearance by Jim Gaffigan, early in his career from Laurie Beechman Theater on November 19, 1999. Since then Jim has gone on to become a top name in comedy with numerous TV Specials, movies and correspondent on CBS SUNDAY MORNING. Jamie always had an eye for talent!

And last but certainly not least, on December 4, 2000, Tony Award Winner Daisy Eagan brought along her friend Clarke Thorell to accompany her at the West Bank Café’s Laurie Beechman Theater singing Lucy Simon’s Wynken, Blynken and Nod, that she had recorded for Jamie’s CD The Child in Me, Volume 2.

The musical directors on this episode include: Rod Hausen, Paul Balfour, Christopher Denny, Lanny Meyers and Clarke Thorell. The performances were filmed over many years starting in 1985 at Upstairs at Greene Street, Steve McGraw’s, Don’t Tell Mama, Metropolitan Room and Laurie Beechman Theater.

Jamie deRoy & friends is directed by Barry Kleinbort and videotaped by Russell Bouthiller.

Jamie deRoy & friends will air on Spectrum Channel 56, RCN Channel 83, and Verizon FIOS Channel 34, as well as on East Hampton LTV Channel 20 later on multiple dates.

7:30pm: Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center: Moving People, Moving Mountains 15th Anniversary Virtual Party featuring Brian Stokes Mitchell, Roseanne Cash, Michael Feinstein, Paul Taylor Dance Co, John Pizzarelli & Jessica Molaskey, Jason Danieley and many more. Appearances by Annette Bening, Judy Collins, Beanie Feldstein, Chris Noth, Bernadette Peters, Yo-Yo Ma . . . honoring founder Lola Jaffe. Produced, directed by Jeremy Handleman.  The event is Free.

7:30: Wagner’s Parsifal The composer’s final masterwork, about a naive young hero’s quest to restore the Holy Grail, demands unparalleled stamina from singers, conductor, and audience alike. Yet the payoff is an operatic experience as profound as anything in the canon, with an overwhelming, symphonic score, compelling psychological portraits, and a message of absolute redemption. The Met’s probing, post-apocalyptic setting by François Girard uses striking imagery to explore the work’s themes of destruction, reconciliation, and salvation, and in tenor Jonas Kaufmann, audiences find the ideal interpreter of the title character.
