The New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF) is proud to present the work of Australian actresses Melody Beck and Evan Lever in it’s 2014 Festival. After the success of last year's AUSTRALIAN CABARET SENSATION CONCERT, we couldn't resist presenting more talented young performers from the Land Down Under. Again this year, there are two shows for the price of one, featuring two red-hot Aussie talents in this not-to-be-missed evening.
Heartwarming, humorous, and thought-provoking, these two solo acts come together on this evening to present their respective biopic cabarets exploring the lives of two incredible and enigmatic performing artists. Help welcome them to the stage for their respective New York debuts, and enjoy an evening of entertainment that you won't want to miss!
UNSEEN: A TRIBUTE TO MARNI NIXON
You've heard her voice – now, hear her story! Winner of the Your Theatrics International Cabaret Contest 2014 (YTICC) Melody Beck takes audiences on a stroll down memory lane in this unique biopic cabaret about one of the most remembered but unknown voices of the golden age of movies. A tribute to the woman remembered as "the Voice of Hollywood," whose dulcet tones memorialize some of the greatest music theatre tunes of our time. She dubbed the singing voices of luminaries including Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Audrey Hepburn, and Deborah Kerr in hit films including West Side Story, My Fair Lady, The King and I, and many more. Melody Beck presents UNSEEN: A TRIBUTE TO MARNI NIXON.
Evan Lever’s AZNAVOURIAN delves into the rich catalogue of one of France and the world’s most recognizable singer/songwriters: Charles Aznavour. At the age of 90, Charles Aznavour has composed over 1000 songs in French, English, Italian, Spanish, and German, and has sold over 100 million records. Evan will deliver some of Aznavour's greatest hits including "She," and "Yesterday when I was Young," as well as lesser known gems, in his theatrical exploration of the work of this legendary musician.
