Another New Jack Paar Show!
Nancy Giles and Cynthia Kaplan are back with another show? So soon? Yes! And we plan to be going monthly starting in 2011, with one more show possibly coming up this year.
What's the New Jack Paar Show? In case you haven't been to one, it is a live talk/variety show hosted by humorist and CBS Morning Show commentator Nancy Giles and and author and comedian Cynthia Kaplan. There will be music, comedy, and very possibly the literary arts will be represented. And, of course, special guests every month.
Who? Since you ask, on Monday, October 25th you will see:
Mary Testa: A two-time TONY nominee, singer Testa has starred in such Broadway hits as On The Town, 42nd Street, Guys and Dolls, Xanadu (it ran and ran!) and Chicago, and has collaborated with the composers William Finn and Michael John LaChiusa. She has appeared in television and film, notably a regular on Whoopi Goldberg's Whoopi, as well as on Sex and the City and the recent Eat Pray Love.
Alyson Palmer & Tony Salvatore: Alyson is a member of the award-winning powerhouse rock band known as BETTY. Since 1986, Betty has recorded eight albums, has toured the world, and their music has been heard on television shows, in movies, in their own off-Broadway show, Betty Rules, and on the cable hit The L Word. Tony is the multi-talented guitarist behind the Tony Salvatore Trio, BETTY and Pleasuredog. He has performed with Jane Siberry, Tracy Bonham, Taj Mahal, GE Smith (SNL), and Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls, among many others. He is also Cindy's guitar guru.
Kathryn Rossetter: An actor, director and teacher, Kathy has appeared on Broadway, in films, on television, and in several acclaimed one-woman shows. She is the recipient of a Tennessee Williams Theatre fellowship for developing the one-person show. Her current work, "Starving, Hysterical, Naked" is the result of that fellowship and is in development in NY.
