Hey everybody! I'm just getting back from two beautiful weeks at SPACE on Ryder Farm working on my musical about radical suffragist Alice Paul and I can't wait to share that project with you soon. I also can't wait to play the next concert in my Joe's Pub residency coming up right up on Monday June 26th at 7PM! There's still a swath of tickets left, so go get yours while supplies last!
This month, I'm taking our live show up a notch, bringing my longtime bandmate David Melton back on stage with us. Dave's keyboard playing is revelatory and has defined songs of mine like Joyful Noise and Harvest. It's been thrilling to incorporate him into our batch of new material and I'm just bursting to share it with you! I'll also be debuting a new song called 2 Captains I co-wrote with my bandmate Mike Brun. And I just can't get enough of singing with Kate Ferber and Liana Stampur, so I'm bringing them both back. I'm also gonna play a song I haven't played live in years. All told, it's shaping up to be a really special one and I want you to be there. Thank you to Broadway World for this thoughtful write-up of my April show, and to everyone who has come out to share these evenings with us so far this year.
In other news, my beloved clowns are back, this time on the small screen! One of our final performances of OLD HATS at the Signature Theatre was filmed and recently aired on PBS! And the good news is - for the next few weeks, you can stream the whole darn thing online! That's right folks, you can watch all of OLD HATS right now right here. I don't know about you, but I could really use a laugh these days, and Bill and David never fail to make my face hurt with joy. Watch it now for some sweet and silly relief from all the madness these days.
Stay tuned for exciting updates about my adaptation of AS YOU LIKE IT happening in a few short months. I'm prouder than ever to make art at The Public Theater. We'll be at the Delacorte all summer long celebrating free expression and inclusive democracy. Thank you for your support!
P.S. Save the date for my next show: Wednesday July 19th, on sale now, featuring the sensational Ali Stroker!
