Celebrity chefs, manatees, lingerie, and the randomness of absolutely everything. Smart, elegant, tuneful, and thought-provoking original cabaret songs by husband-and-wife team David Alpher (pianist/composer) and Jennie Litt (singer/lyricist), plus a handful of exquisite standards. Jennie and David's NYC debut cabaret show is back for two encore performances at the chic Metropolitan Room. Directed by Barry Kleinbort.
The husband-and-wife cabaret and songwriting team of David Alpher (pianist/composer) and Jennie Litt (singer/lyricist) made their NYC debut at Don’t Tell Mama in 2010, but their career as a duo kicked off in 1999, on their very first date, which they spent singing and playing great American stanndards in a cabin in the New Hampshire woods. Since then, they have appeared in numerous venues in the northeast and beyond, including the 2005, 2006, and 2007 seasons of The Chamber Arts Festival of Marbletown (with Jay Ungar & Molly Mason; Poets of Tin Pan Alley author Philip Furia; and Celtic powerhouse trio Ferintosh, respectively), the Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Bard College, Harvard University, The Albany Institute of History & Art, NYC’s Abingdon Theatre, The People's Voice Café, The MacDowell Colony, and The Millay Colony. They headlined the 2007 Dissident Folk & Arts Festival's "Tribute to Bertolt Brecht," at the Howland Cultural Center, and have been featured at Wurtsboro’s Broadway Concerts Direct, the Music at Marist concert series, Cape Ann’s West End Theatre, and St. Giles Church(Oxford, UK), as well as on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio's popular “Performance Place” and "Dancing on the Air." They are regulars at NYC open-mic venues such as Salon and Wednesday Night at the Iguana.
