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

Award-winning vocal group THOSE GIRLS present a special acoustic "unplugged" night of Those Girls Sing the Boys (vol.1) on Saturday 10/19 at 7p

No band. No mics. No telling what can happen. :-)

THOSE GIRLS are bringing their mix of harmony && humor to a special, unplugged version of their new show, "THOSE GIRLS SING THE BOYS (vol 1.2). This show salutes music from five decades of male artists (with their own spin on them, of course), from Elvis to the Rat Pack to Kansas to Bruno Mars and then some!

This one-night-only event is the latest of their popular, all-acoustic evenings at Pangea, a favorite with audiences and critics alike. THOSE GIRLS, a NYC based vocal group made up of Eve Eaton, Rachel Hanser, Karen Mack && Wendy Russell, were chosen Best Vocal Group for both 2017 && 2018 by the Manhattan Assoc. of Cabarets (MAC), and earlier this year they made their Carnegie Hall debut. Joined by Steven Ray Watkins on piano, a good time is a four-gone conclusion! www.thosegirlssing.com

"Those Girls bring back the era of tight girl group harmonies a unique blend of unusual repertoire, killer arrangements, individual performances and exciting harmonies!" Times Square Chronicles (T2C)

"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

"Conversations with Claywoman"

500 million year old Interstellar enigma Claywoman in conversation with Special Guest Amber A'lee Frost.

Amber ALee Frost is a writer, musician and co host of the Chapo Trap House Podcast

Sunday September 29, 2019 at 7PM..

Claywoman is a 500 million year old enigma from the Mirillion Galaxy. She travels to Earth (one of her favorite planets) from time to time to check in on us and engage in dialogue. One of her most famous talks was at Hunter College some years ago. This visit, she arrives while our species is in a particularly dangerous predicament and so this could even be called an emergency visit. She looks forward to chatting with some old friends and taking questions from the audience in attendance at Pangea.

Michael Cavadias is an actor, performer and writer. Film and TV credits include Wonder Boys, All We Had, I Remember Nothing, Girls, and Difficult People. Claywoman was originally created at Blackips Performance Cult in the 90s and nurtured at Mabou Mines by Ruth Maleczech. More recently, Michael worked with Rob Roth on The Mystery of Claywoman which was presented at The New Museum, The Wild Project, Town Hall, Abrons Art Center and Howl Festival. Conversations with Claywoman was featured at The Meltdown Festival in London.

TWEED TheaterWorks (EST 1983), Kevin Malony Artistic director, has been partnering with Pangea for the past three years to present a stellar performance series on Sundays (and some others days!) that combines the best of the "old school' and the "up && coming" musical, performance, and theater artists that NYC has to offer. www.tweedtheater.org
