Sign up for the latest about American Songbook.
New York City’s hometown hero Martha Plimpton wowed audiences with her 2010 American Songbook debut, the one-woman show Martha Plimpton Sings?. For her much anticipated return to the series, the beloved Emmy Award winner and three-time Tony Award nominee—together with musical director Dan Lipton—pays tribute to the genius of singer-songwriter Aimee Mann with a hand-picked set of favorite tunes, each thematically paired to devastatingly mordant effect with a different United States president. Accompanied by a quartet of stellar musicians from the worlds of Broadway and late-night television, Plimpton will also invite special guests to join her onstage for this hilariously heartbreaking triptych through the landscape of love and loss and electoral misjudgment.
