Directed by Seret Scott


Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage’s vivid tale is set among the bustle of New York in the early part of the 20th century. Esther, a talented African-American seamstress, crafts stunning undergarments for women from the brothels to the Upper East Side. Shimmering with vital and memorable characters, this is a powerful and moving tale of romance, independence, acceptance, and what lies just under our outer appearances.

patarack@hotmail.com (email)

·       We’ll be creating a supper-club, open-mic scene by inviting some of New York City’s KARAOKE ALL-STARS to perform their karaoke favorites (along with me) during the first two hours.

·       For any walk-ins (or folks who may need two hours to loosen up a la the bar), we’ll have a few slots available in the third and final hour of the night.

·        ADDITIONALLY, on any given Thursday, some of our AWESOME PRO SINGER friends may pop by and bless us with a song or two.

·       Though this week will include a survey of all music, we will also schedule THEME NIGHTS i.e. MOTOWN, the DIVAS, BROADWAY, 70s FUNK, JAZZ STANDARDS, etc.

If you are among my fellow KARAOKE singers or are just one of NYC’s FINEST SINGERS (and you want to come out and play THIS THURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 @ 9PM), please email me at patarack@hotmail.com. And LET ME KNOW WHAT FOUR or FIVE SONGS YOU’D LIKE TO SING (so we can pre-program the line-up).

This is all for FREE and for FUN… for now! We’re trying this concept on for size and – over the next weeks – will determine what of it works best… and where we may want to grow this special Thursday night in Harlem.

WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU FOLKS COME OUT… and SUPPORT! But most importantly, PLEASE COME OUT AND HAVE FUN!
