30 Apr 2014
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) celebrates its 100th anniversary April 30 at Carnegie Hall. Tony Award nominee Liz Callaway is among the evening's guests.
The 7:30 PM evening is part of Michael Feinstein's annual Standard Time with Michael Feinstein series.
Special guests include Tony Award nominee Callaway, singer-songwriters Siedah Garrett (writer of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror") and Jimmy Webb (writer of "MacArthur Park") and pianists Barry Eastmond and Alex Rybeck.
Songs from ASCAP's musical library include "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," "Didn't We," "MacArthur Park," "Man in the Mirror," "99 Miles from LA" and "Music and the Mirror."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
