Lone Star Lyric presents Night At The Algonquin
Come for the Cocktail Hour Cabaret and stay a while, you never know who might show up at the world premiere of Omari Tau’s jazz opera, Night At The Algonquin.
Act I: The Algonquin Hotel’s Rose Room is proud to present the best of Your Hit Parade. The Jazz Age, or as columnist Westbrook Pegler penned “the era of wonderful nonsense.” Vote for your favorite hit of the night from songs like “Look for the Silver Lining,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing if It Ain’t Got that Swing,” and many more. Lead by Rob Hunt and his Swing Trio.
Act II: With the backdrop of 1920s and 30s jazz, the swirl of characters from Dorothy Parker’s circle of friends at the Algonquin Hotel’s infamous round table of critics, writers, poets, and artists of all sorts are revealed to an unsuspecting group of tourists. Rob Hunt conducts from the piano with the Algonquin Jazz Quartet.
