In celebration of her 2017 Bistro Award for Outstanding Theme Show, Lucille Carr-Kaffashan is bringing her critically acclaimed show Unwritten, Celebrating 21st Century Female Singer-Songwriters back to Don’t Tell Mama. She is joined by 2017 Bistro Award winning musical director Jeff Cubeta on piano and back-up vocals, Sean Harkness on guitar, and Matt Scharfglass on bass. Lucille will perform Unwritten on Saturday, April 29th at 7 pm and on Thursday, May 4th at 7 pm.
With direction by David Hilder, this show features a mix of joyful, touching, thought-provoking and laughter-inducing 21st century songs written by outstanding artists such as Adele, Annie Lennox, Sara Bareilles, Susan Werner, Meghan Trainor and Tracy Chapman. The program reflects the voices of women in their 20’s as well as those in their 60’s, and every decade in between, opening a window to the hearts and minds of contemporary women.
Lucille’s prior two cabaret outings were celebrations of the music of The Beatles and of 1970’s female singer-songwriters. She performed for a number of years in the regional productions of the New Jersey-based Entertainers Theater before developing her first cabaret act. Since her Don’t Tell Mama debut in 1999, Lucille has presented ten different one-woman shows at clubs in New York City, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, including Mama Rose’s, The Encore, Helen’s, Odette’s, The Stockton Inn, and Bob Egan’s Cabaret Supper Club. She has also appeared as a guest performer in special productions at the Laurie Beechman Theater and the Metropolitan Room in NYC, and Tim McCloone’s Supper Club in Asbury Park.
Lucille is the recipient of the prestigious Hanson Award, presented each year to one individual by the Manhattan Association of Cabaret and Clubs.
