Developed, in part, at The Orchard Project, Lady with a Song has been in residence around the corner from Club Cumming (at Pangea) since January. Bartholet has been taking part in the Club Cumming Variety Shows and open mics and felt it was time to bring Lady with a Song to another East Village performance saloon.
Jack jumps from existential crisis to rage and war whilst playing a bit of dress-up. Bartholet uses his creamy tenor to say bye-bye to toxic masculinity and violence in an evening of wide-ranging, heartfelt tunes. From Weimar Cabaret songs to Lizzo and takeaways from a Spotify search spiral during an isolated artist residency. For sixty minutes, call him a Lady while glitter grenades of love get launched.
The show recently played London's Phoenix Arts Club where Cabaret Scenes Magazine noted:
"#x5b;Jack's#x5d; ability to captivate with storytelling is equal to his superlative renditions of songs drawn from an extensive catalogue and delivered here with stunning vocal quality".
"excellent", The Daily Beast
"remarkably naked emotion and expert storytelling", The Bistro Awards
Directed by Julian Fleisher and Musically Directed by Yasuhiko Fukuoka. Featuring Matilde Bernabei. Bass: Danny Ori. Percussion: Simon Fishburn.
