All-Star Evening at the Bistros: Celebrating Liberace, Peggy Lee and Helen Morgan
For 33 years, the Bistro Awards have recognized excellence in cabaret, jazz and comedy. Join us for a double-header of two 2017 award-winning shows featuring portrayal tributes of musical legends. Produced by Sherry Eaker.

7PM David Maiocco as Liberace & Chuck Sweeney as Peggy Lee in Lee Squared
What if two music legends who defined four decades of music and pop culture had a chance to perform together? In Lee Squared, it happens, as Maiocco portrays Liberace, the flamboyant pianist, as he tickles the ivories with his favorite songs, while Sweeney does a fevered impersonation of Peggy Lee that includes a heavy dose of camp hilarity.

9PM Lauren Stanford as Helen Morgan in More Than You Know
Late nights in prohibition-era NYC you could find Helen Morgan iconically perched on the piano, relying too much on brandy and “torching” until even the most hardened gangster wept into his beer. More Than You Know is a dramatic recreation of Morgan’s final night in residency at The Simplon Club in 1932. Director: Eric Michael Gillett. Music Director: Mike Pettry. Click Here to buy tickets.
