Cabaret star Mary Cleere Haran, who was to perform Nov. 13, 14 and 15 in the American Songbook series, has canceled her Lincoln Center weekend due to illness. Haran was scheduled to offer three different evenings of song at the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse: a master class (Nov. 13), a tribute to the film "The Band Wagon" (Nov. 14) and her own concert (Nov. 15).
Described by The New York Times as "the most literature chanteuse of her generation," Mary Cleere Haran has performed in some of the top cabaret venues around the country as well as in the original Broadway cast of The 1940's Radio Hour and the Off-Broadway companies of The Heebie Jeebies and Hollywood Opera. Her numerous recordings include "There's a Small Hotel: Live at the Algonquin," "This Heart of Mine: Classic Movie Songs of the 40s," "This Funny World: Lyrics by Hart" and "Pennies From Heaven."
