I recently closed a 4 show fall musical residency at Pangeaw with a new and eclectic program, including signature songs by Charles Aznavour and Alberto Manzanero that was very special to me.
Ian Herman, my musical director and dear collaborator, and I included contemporary selections by Randy Newman, Janis Ian, Billy Joel, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, and even (our crowd favorite) original material we wrote together. THANK YOU to all of you who came and shared your support so generously.
Ian (here he is), already looking forward to the next show!

WHAT 'TEACH ME TONIGHT' IS ABOUT
A musical look at the teacher/ student roles we play over and over again in the mystery of life. I was exploring questions like: Who is the teacher? Who is the student?
Humor and personal anecdotes are my favorite ways to take audiences on a joyous emotional and musical adventure, and I really felt that with this show we were able to come closer to the principle that we are all the teacher and student in the school of life.
WHY I DO WHAT I DO
I am profoundly passionate about teaching, learning, discovering, exploring... and the deep relationship between student and teacher. I've either been in front of a classroom or an audience my whole life. In the broadest sense, we all teach and learn from each other: parents, children, lovers, spouses, partners. From heartbreak and heartthrobs, from birth to death.
