Award-winning songwriters Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich once again bring the intimate The Marcy & Zina Show to Birdland. The evening is a continuation of the Summer In The City concert series, which features top performers and composers at the legendary music room. The season is presented by Jim Caruso, in Association with TheaterMania.com.
The Marcy & Zina Show features the duo's best-loved songs written for theater and cabaret, and also introduces new songs from upcoming productions of Ever After and Love Has Strings. The duo is joined by singers Kate Weatherhead and Scott Coulter, cellist Peter Sachon, as well as Mike Croiter on drums, Chris Sung on guitar, and Matt Scharfglass on bass.
Goldrich and Heisler have toured both nationally and internationally performing their music at some of the world's most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, Canada's "Juste Pour Rire" comedy festival and the Kennedy Center. Their song, "Taylor, the Latte Boy" has been recorded by Christiane Noll and Susan Egan, and is featured on Kristin Chenoweth's cd on the Sony label. Their body of work has garnered them many songwriter awards including 4 MAC Awards, 2 Bistro Awards, and several grants for their musical theatre projects. Their 32-song folio, Goldrich and Heisler Vol.1, was published last year and is already in its second printing. In 2004, they authored Junie B. Jones for Theatreworks USA, which enjoyed a six-week run at the Lucille Lortel Theatre as part of New York's Free Summer Theatre Program and is currently touring the country.
