Composer Duncan Sheik, who won 2007 Tony Awards for his score and orchestrations in Spring Awakening and also supplied the score to the 2016 musical American Psycho, will make his Café Carlyle debut as a cabaret performer October 3–7.
Sheik launched his pop career in 1996 with his eponymous Grammy-nominated debut album. He won the Grammy for the original cast album of Spring Awakening, and that show also won the Tony as Best Musical in 2007. He has also written music for non-musical Off-Broadway plays, including Twelfth Night at the Public Theatre, Carson McCullers Talks About Love and A Man’s a Man, the latter two of which earned him nominations for Drama Desk Awards.
As a singer-songwriter, Sheik has released multiple albums, including Daylight, Phantom Moon, White Limousine, and, most recently, Legerdemain in 2015. He is currently developing several theatre projects including Noir, Secret Life of Bees, and Because of Winn Dixie, and is reportedly working on a film adaptation of Spring Awakening.
Café Carlyle performances are scheduled for 8:45 each evening. Tickets cost $65–$135 weekdays, $75–$150 on the weekend. Ticket can be ordered by phone at (212) 744-1600 or online by clicking here. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle hotel, 35 East 76th Street in Manhattan.
