Award-winning vocalists, Sue Matsuki & Marcus Simeone, bring their brand new show, their first collaboration together, to the Duplex Cabaret Theatre in Greenwich Village. This show is a nostalgic look back in time and is composed of all of the great standards of the American Songbook and a few new tunes by some of the standard writers of today.
Sue & Marcus, along with the incomparable Tedd Firth as Musical Director, will be taking you on a journey. This show is about the power of music, how you can hear a song that you may not have heard for a while and how it can miraculously transport you back in time to that physical or emotional place when you first heard it.

2003 Back Stage Bistro Awards


Private Black-Tie Celebration
Monday, March 31st
THE SUPPER CLUB in NYC
ENCORES!
"Mostly Standards", Tuesday, March 4th @ 8:30pm
"Moon Over Brooklyn", Tuesday, March 11th @ 8:30pm
JUDY'S CHELSEA, 169 Eighth Avenue, NYC
Reservations Suggested: 212-929-5410
Join Marcus as he celebrates Cabaret Month in NYC by doing two special performances of his acclaimed cabaret shows from 2002. Here's what the critics had to say:
"MOSTLY STANDARDS"
When it comes to high and heavenly voices, I doubt even St. Peter has heard one as angelic as Marcus Simeone's. In his latest show, "Mostly Standards," at The Duplex, he sings with a thrilling and ethereal tenor that makes him sound like the love child of Johnny Mathis and Jane Olivor. Not surprisingly, he even does an exquisite job with a couple of tunes I'd associate with Olivor's signature style and arrangements: B. Mondlock's "Nightsong (I Could Love You)" and Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Some Enchanted Evening."... His silky and sinuous interpretations, in which he weighs each word, never sound substandard.
— Wayman Wong, NY Daily News, 2002
From his opener, "Stardust" through "An Affair to Remember" to "I Can Dream, Can't I" to "Yellow Roses on Her Gown" to a great swing version of "Miss Otis Regrets" to the best "Some Enchanted Evening" this side of Ezio Pinza, Simeone put conviction behind almost every sentiment he uttered; he barely wasted a gesture. In between songs, he was amusing — "I'm not here to give a lesson on the Great American Songbook," he joked.... By the time he'd finished a class act made classier by D. Jay Bradley at the piano, he'd produced some of the sweetest sounds and most meaningful thoughts to perfume venue air in a while.
— David Finkle, Back Stage, 2002
You only need to hear him sing a few notes to know that Marcus Simeone has a beautiful voice that he wields with authority and elegance.... His musical selections would be overwhelming in lesser hands, but Simeone's voice coupled with Jay Bradley's understated, elegant arrangements make for pleasurable listening indeed. Clearly, he's already got the heartthrob stage presence and "the voice." With a little polish on the technical side of his performance, Simeone could easily play the top rooms in New York.
— David Hurst, Show Business, 2002
"MOON OVER BROOKLYN"
Mr. Simeone's cabaret skills have matured since I first heard him in his debut shows a few years back.... Simeone has become, in just a few months, one of the stars of cabaret — soon to be a superstar. The vocals are still spectacular, and Marcus' boyish charm and charismatic style are still intact. The haunting vocals, covering several octaves, are astounding. A Marcus Simeone performance is an event that you will not soon forget, and in this show Marcus brings it all together onto a delightful hour of enchantment.
— Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline, 2002
Judy's Chelsea is a jewel box of a cabaret room, located in the heart of Chelsea. Proclaimed the "best cabaret room in NYC" by Show Business in 2001, Judy's offers a full menu before the show, beginning at 7 pm. JudysChelsea.com
