The Cabaret queen once again gathers herself (along with top NYC artists) to pay homage to the premier bad-ass in a gown, The High Priestess of Soul, Ms. Nina Simone. Special guests to be announced.
The incomparable "cabaret star" (NY Magazine) Lady Rizo is back for an unchaperoned evening of song and decadence. You may have seen her here at Joe's Pub with her "glam bottom baring dance troupe the Assettes " (Village Voice), celebrating the billboard top ten in the monthly series Our Hit Parade, or midtown at the gothic Night Hotel co-hosting the weekly transnational lounge Foreign Affairs.
But here is your chance to have her all to yourself. Her seamless mix of bawdy humor and elegance has been likened to Mae West but it’s her vocal chops that have garnered recent attention: collaborating with both Yo-Yo Ma & Moby, singing selections of the American Songbook in front of the internationally acclaimed 36 -piece orchestra The Knights, and at MOMA for a sold out cabaret for the Kirchner Exhibit.
