Beginning Jan. 5, 2004, the King Kong Room will present the Marcy & Zina Show every Monday at 7 PM. Each week will feature songwriters Zina Goldrich and Marcy Heisler as well as appearances by various guest stars. The series begins with Cabaret's Kate Shindle Jan. 5; the following week, Jan. 12, will see Shindle and David Beach; and Norm Lewis, Julia Murney and Paige Price are scheduled for Jan. 26. The evenings at the King Kong Room will boast the songs of Goldrich and Heisler, who were honored with the ASCAP Foundation Richard Rodgers New Horizons Theatre Award. They are also the recipients of several Bistro and MAC Awards, and Wicked's Kristin Chenoweth performed their song "Taylor, the Latte Boy" on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show." About the songwriters, Tony Award winner Maury Yeston said, "Zina Goldrich and Marcy Heisler are the most gifted new writing team of their musical theatre generation. They create music and lyrics that are as fresh, bright, witty and accessible as have ever been written."
There is a $20 cover and a $15 food/drink minimum for the concerts. The King Kong Room is located within the Supper Club at 240 West 47th Street. Call (212) 921-1904 for reservations.
