Show Full Description

With vocalist Marilyn Maye, and pianist Tedd Firth

Singer, actress, and living legend Marilyn Maye is the “Queen of Cabaret,” an iconic entertainer whom Ella Fitzgerald famously praised as one of her favorite singers. She’s shared the stage with artists like Count Basie and Charlie Parker, and she appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson an unprecedented 76 times. Maye has been a recent audience favorite at Dizzy’s Club and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s annual galas, and in October 2017 she headlined four sets in The Appel Room. She now returns to our most intimate venue for a run that’s likely to sell out in advance. Join us at Dizzy’s and enjoy a true entertainer, one of the remaining geniuses from the “golden age of show business” who remains as sharp and effective as ever.
