    Here is the ticket link: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3381682

    Come share an irreverent evening of songs by Fran Landesman, self-proclaimed “poet laureate of lovers and losers,” the Dorothy Parker of jazz lyrics, best remembered for The Nervous Set, the world’s only beatnik musical, which flopped on Broadway, but two numbers “All the Sad Young Men” and “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most” survived to become jazz standards. The evening includes collaborations with Tommy Wolf, Alec Wilder, Bob Dorough, Roy Kral, Simon Wallace and Richard Rodney Bennett.

    “Full of salt and vinegar…with the intensity and tough humor of someone who might have lived on the bohemian fringe in the late ’40s and ’50s, when the word ‘hip’ meant something.”

    Stephen Holden, New York Times

    “Mary Foster Conklin proved to be the perfect choice to present the writer and her work to 21st century audiences. In addition to showcasing Conklin’s long-recognized mastery of the jazz vocal idiom, this show was so smart, so sophisticated, and so assured that it was a total pleasure.”

    Singer KT Sullivan
    Returns to Birdland
    “A Swing Time Kern-U-Copia”
    Monday, May 21 at 7pm

    The Broadway at Birdland concert series is thrilled to announce that cabaret superstar KT Sullivan will return to the historic stage on Monday, May 21 at 7pm.

    KT Sullivan celebrates the master melodist Jerome Kern with songs both obscure (“Raggedy Ann” and “Bungalow In “Quogue”) and classic (“Bill”, “All the Things You Are” and, yes, “Old Man River”). Buoyed by jazz greats Jon Weber on piano and Steve Doyle on bass, KT will surprise with hot tunes In Swing Time.

    KT Sullivan was named artistic director of The Mabel Mercer Foundation in 2012. She starred in the Broadway revival of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and headlined for almost two decades in The Oak Room of The Algonquin Hotel. One of the shows she created there, “Rhyme, Women, and Song,” was presented this season in a one hour presentation on PBS’ WNET 13.

    Dan Furman’s “Impossible But True” is an immersive musical staged at Franklin 820,
    a local bar in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn. The bar is one short block from the
    Franklin Ave stop of the 2,3,4 and 5 lines—about 20-25 minutes from Union Square on
    the express (4 or 5) trains. There are two more shows: Monday, May 14 at 7pm and
    Monday, May 21 at 7pm. The production is free and last 2 hours.

    Loosely based on the story of Rip Van Winkle, it is a show about believing (or not believing) in possibility.
    It follows Rip—an idle storyteller and dreamer—as he goes off to fight in the Revolutionary
    War and then cannot find his way home. The music is tuneful and the show is family-friendly
    and humorous.

    Impossible but True (in a tavern) features: Rob Langeder* (Rip), Danielle Erin Rhodes* (Rebecca)
    Jerome Harmann-Hardeman* (Vedder/Hudson/Gansevoort), + Abigail Clyne, Charles Ouda, James Scheider*,
