The words and stories of William Shakespeare have been cherished, imitated and immortalized in song by artists for generations - musicals like West Side Story, Kiss Me Kate and The Boys From Syracuse all draw their inspiration from the writer's most timeless plays. Now, three young guys make their New York cabaret debut at Birdland with an original, hilarious and ultimately compelling look at the world of music based on the Bard's work. Some you'll know, some you won't - from hits, flops, the unreleased and even the unfinished, join the GUYTUNES for an unforgettable night, as they Sing Shakespeare!
The GUYTUNES are a unique new cabaret act comprised of Nick Blaemire (Off Broadway's Altar Boyz), Justin Keyes (Broadway's The Apple Tree) and Jason Michael Snow (Goodspeed Opera House's The Pirates of Penzance). These three fresh, up-and-coming performers are making quite a joyful noise on the cabaret circuit, full of "strong, clear voices," "adventurous choices in material," and "sharp stage presence."
After selling out a critically acclaimed, extended run at the prestigious Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA, the GUYTUNES are ready to take New York by storm. If you're ready to hear your favorite songs revitalized, and be introduced to new ones you'll never forget, come hear some GUYTUNES!
