Janis Siegel: I’ll Take Manhattan

The Public Theater & Joe's Pub 425 Lafayette Street (at Astor Place), NY

Nine-time Grammy winner and founding member of The Manhattan Transfer, Janis Siegel, waxes rhapsodic about her beloved city in song and word. She will be assisted by two master musicians, John di Martino on piano and Boris Koslov on bass. The songs are diverse, romantic, bittersweet, vintage, modern, and full of heart and history, just like New York City itself.

Children of the American Bop (and Mambo) Night!

The Public Theater & Joe's Pub 425 Lafayette Street (at Astor Place), NY

Jack Kerouac's legendary status as the leading voice of the Beat writers was cemented with his seminal work, On the Road. Published in 1957, the same year West Side Story debuted on Broadway and Sputnik launched into space. David Amram and Bobby Sanabria will perform jazz and Latin classics of the 1950s that influenced Kerouac and an entire generation. The show will also include brief readings from On the Road with music, just as Kerouac and Amram pioneered jazz-poetry in New York in 1957.
