ALI HUGHES: LEONARD COHEN KOANS  | Open: 10/25/19 Close: 10/30/19
Buoyant and vigorous in its celebration of the music and spirit of the iconic legend, LEONARD COHEN KOANS is a must see show for Cohen lovers and newcomers alike.

Renowned for her dynamic, sensuous voice, Ali Hughes delivers powerhouse interpretations of Leonard Cohen's most loved poetry, prose and song. As well as lesser known gems like The Butcher, you'll enjoy such Cohen favourites as Chelsea Hotel #2 and Suzanne in all new arrangements exploring the dynamism and intimacy in Cohen's incredible musicality.

Musically directed by Green Room Award winning composer Daryl Wallis, LEONARD COHEN KOANS moves from ethereal to full throttle in a heartbeat.

'ali && the thieves" are a storytelling music collaborative who perform internationally. Ali Hughes (producer, writer, lead artist) and Daryl Wallis (musical director, collaborator, pianist) share a background in theater performance and production and have collaborated with leading Australian theatre companies, including Sydney Opera House Baby Proms, Ensemble Theatre Co and Siren Theatre Co.

Their production of Leonard Cohen Koans has headlined and featured internationally on tour (Australia, USA, Canada, UK) and at festivals and fringe festivals (International Leonard Cohen Festival Dublin, NYC Fringe Festival and Sydney Fringe Festival), and next plays at the San Francisco Leonard Cohen Festival in November this year.

They are currently working on a new show interpreting the work of Lou Reed, to be presented in New York in 2020.

Gretchen Reinhagen: Take It With Me  | Open: 09/17/19 Close: 12/17/19
In February, award winning director, vocalist and comedian Gretchen Reinhagen released her debut album, Take It With Me, with back to back sold out shows. Now, along with her pianist and musical director, Tracy Stark, and bassist, Tom Hubbard, she revisits some of the highlights of that show, with songs from the album, mixed in with past (or future) recordings, as well as Gretchen's own brand of stand-up comedy in her new monthly engagement at Pangea, beginning Tuesday, September 17th, and continuing on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. Each month, Gretchen will add new songs and new stories, to ensure that you may return again and again!

Gretchen Reinhagen received the coveted triple crown of cabaret awards The Nightlife, Bistro, and MAC Awards for her show, Special Kaye: A Tribute to the Incomparable Kaye Ballard in 2010. She also took home MAC Awards in the director category in 2013, and comedy again in 2018 for her show, #iBlamePaleo. On February 27th of this year, she released her long awaited debut album, "Take It With Me", to packed crowds and a glowing reception at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York. Gretchen was also honored with a cover story in the March/April issue of Cabaret Scenes.

"...the talented Gretchen Reinhagen shares not only her idol's vocal quality but adds a valuable slant on the mercurial quality of fate." - Village Voice

"As I've often said, 'It's not sufficient to do a funny song; you have to be funny.' Reinhagen is funny." - Bistro Awards

"I don't use this word often or casually, but Gretchen Reinhagen's show about Kaye Ballard is a triumph." - Cabaret Scenes

"Gretchen must possess one of the most appealing personalities in cabaret, her winning smile establishing a bond with her audience that draws them into an intimacy based on humor and good will...what she does, she does very well."

"Supremely entertaining... ravishing close harmony... From start to finish, this show was a highly original, high-energy, witty home run - ear candy that engaged the mind, as the unpretentious performers engaged with their crack musicality, splendid voices, precision, warmth, humor, and personal connectedness to the material." Cabaret Hotspot

"Each of them brings wit and charm... super-talented...a highly entertaining show - you won't be disappointed!" - Stage Buddy

Following a month of sold-out performances in March of her portrayal of Marianne Faithfull, pegged to the 40th anniversary of the landmark Broken English album, Tammy Faye Starlite has announced a new production titled "Why'd Ya Do It?: Tammy Faye Starlite Performs Marianne Faithfull's Broken English at Pangea" this fall. The show, directed by Michael Schiralli whose credits include Varla Jean Merman and the Mushroom Heads, Scraping the Bottom: The Most Offensive Songs of Jackie Hoffman and Tammy Faye's own acclaimed Nico Underground, launches Wednesday, September 25 and then plays every Thursday in October with the run concluding on Halloween. Two preview performances are set for Thursday, September 12 and September 19.

*On Opening Night September 25th, Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Band, SiriusXM host) will be Tammys special guest along with a special mystery guest!

TICKETS FOR OPENING NIGHT INCLUDE A POST SHOW RECEPTION WITH SPARKLING WINE AND CAVA UNTIL 9:30PM.

Tammy Faye's earlier Cabaret Marianne performance piece was cited in The New York Times as a jaw dropping show. In his review, Stephen Holden wrote, "Tammy Faye Starlite went all the way: impersonating Marianne Faithfull, rock musics fallen woman, with an uncanny accuracy. Her simulation of Ms. Faithfull's vocal style and combustible blend of arrogance and scabrous sarcasm only begins to tell the story." Tammy Faye originally performed Broken English at Lincoln Center and brought it to Joe's Pub and The Metropolitan Room; later she performed Marianne Faithful: Exposed at Joes Pub and McCabes in Los Angeles. Thereafter, she took Cabaret Marianne on the road to Provincetown, Chicago and St. Louis.

When Marianne Faithfull released Broken English in 1979, she shattered all preconceptions, glass ceilings, walls and doorways. She claimed her identity and emerged as herself after years of playing the roles of pop princess, rock-royal consort, fallen angel, and tattered waif, roles for which she never auditioned nor truly wanted. Through the power of this album she became what she had always been: passionate, tender, knowing, uncensored and unashamed. The album, in its unabashed desire and rage and profound excavation of the human spirit, still resonates today. Its not a relic. Its a reality.

Tammy Faye Starlite does her utmost to keep the fire aflame and honor the integrity - no, the intensity - of Marianne Faithfull's groundbreaking album while trying to heed a Marianne dictum: We fucked up, now were free! In view of this assertion, it's easy to see why The New York Times Stephen Holden proclaimed "Tammy Faye's Marianne Faithfull portrayal to be easily the most revelatory show I've seen."

Marianne Faithfull has commented on the legacy of Broken English in recent years, suggesting, "It was simply the world seen from my point of view. It wasn't a conscious statement on the world... Broken English is very personal.. the songs, the covers that I did, simply happened to be songs I believed myself. Working Class Hero, The Ballad of Lucy Jordan, Why'D Ya Do It, were written by other people, but I could have written them myself."

Broken English, from the time of its initial release in 1979 through the present day has been seen as a benchmark work in terms of its raw honesty and the revelations it conveys.

"Now, as Marianne Faithfull, British pops queen of survival, Starlite resurrects 1979s Broken English as a thoroughly modern tale of adventure, abyss and hard-won vengeance one of the most brutally frank albums of its time, made flesh again, in poignant lethally honest character." - David Fricke/Rolling Stone
