On May 15-16, Feinstein will host Cy Coleman: Bringing Jazz to Broadway, featuring Cooper (The Life), Lee (Seesaw) and Tamara Tunie ("Law & Order").
Also planned is Sweet & Low Down: How Popular Standards Became Jazz Classics, presented June 5-6, and featuring Mueller (On a Clear Day, Into the Woods), pianist-vocalist Loston Harris and Feinstein.
According to Jazz and Popular Song, "This show will present classic songs from two viewpoints: as they were originally conceived for Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley, and then as they were re-invented by jazz performers to become classics in the jazz repertoire."
Talent has not been announced for the June 10 concert, Sweet & Low Down: Family Matinee, exploring the common roots of composers from Duke Ellington to Cole Porter.

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.
