The new show will highlight Marcus's own "changes" in music, the world -- and Marcus. The eclectic song list will feature songs that reflect these assorted forms of funny and profound changes in sensibilities and the world we live in. He will sing songs from the catalogs of many great songwriters including Sammy Cahn, Bobby Darin, Carole King, Jimmy Van Heusen, Johnny Mercer and more. Aside from praising his expressive singing and distinct vocal range, writers have compared Marcus to an eclectic mix including some of the great contemporary interpretive vocalists ranging from Al Jarreau to Jimmy Smith to Johnny Mathis and the late Eva Cassidy. Such is his androgynous sound, emotional range and soulful delivery that writer/music historian Will Friedwald wrote, "Like few other singers I have ever heard, Marcus Simeone gets both classic and contemporary pop songs to live side by side with each other and get along in perfect harmony. And he explores the common ground between the two ... his beautiful voice, his extremely wide range, his ability to switch effortlessly from baritone to tenor to falsetto, and, likewise, his multi-generic ability to move easily between the worlds of pop, cabaret, theater music, soul and even jazz. Whatever he sings, he does it with total sincerity. Marcus Simeone is totally sincere, and I for one am glad that he's here."

Thursday, June 12th (showtime 9pm)

Le Dôme, The Nightclub Under the Stars at The Manor
111 Prospect Avenue, West Orange, NJ
Reservations 973-731-2360.

Enjoy stellar evenings of four-star dining and four-star entertainment. The monthly Cabaret Soirée series, presented on Thursday evenings, brings some of America's star cabaret performers to Le Dôme's intimate stage.

Since his sensational cabaret debut in January 2000, Marcus Simeone has emerged as one of the most talked-about and celebrated singers to grace the stages of Manhattan's nightclubs since Streisand took the town by storm at the Bon Soir. Winner of numerous awards and a Manhattan nightclub icon, he is universally regarded for his heart-wrenching interpretations of lyrics, red-hot jazz sensibility, and powerful pop flair. Reviewing a previous outing, New York Daily News critic Wayman Wong wrote "Simeone proved once again that the sky's the limit for his stratospheric high tenor and his talent. He's got his own voice, as a singer and as an artist...a special sound that deserves to be heard. The same can be said for the three singers Marcus honors in this highly entertaining show at Le Dome.

Bobby Darin, Johnny Mathis, and Tony Bennett; three iconic singing legends, each with a passion for singing which has touched generations of fans the world over. "Mack The Knife," "Beyond The Sea," "Misty," "It's Not For Me To Say," "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," "Rags To Riches" ‹- these towering hits, by these three men, are only a hint of the impact these men have made on modern music and culture.

Bill Van Sant, formerly of Worrall Community Newspapers, in reviewing Marcus' previous show at The Manor, called his performance "beautiful and haunting." Join Marcus, along with renown musical director Barry Levitt and his trio, as they pay homage to popular American song as exemplified by the works of Darin, Mathis and Bennett. Earlier in his career, Marcus appeared on the original Star Search as well as Showtime at the Apollo. Critic John Hoglund of Back Stage proclaimed Marcus "King of the power ballad . . . he has no peer."

"Answer Me," "Wonderful, Wonderful," "Misty," "There Goes My Heart," "It's Not For Me To Say," and "Chances Are" are among the towering hits which Johnny Mathis has enjoyed over more than five decades as a chart-topping icon.
Marcus will bring his own special magic to the songs Johnny made famous, as well as offer a personal homage to the man for whom Columbia Records pioneered the "greatest hits" album, now an industry tradition. Johnny Mathis, who began his career on small stages in San Francisco and New York, continues to sell out Radio City Music Hall and still holds the record for continuous weeks (490) of being on the Billboard Top Albums Chart.
"This is the show that he was born to perform!
At last, Marcus & Mathis are joined into

"Marcus Simeone sings with a thrilling and ethereal tenor that makes him sound like the love child of Johnny Mathis and Jane Oliver . . . a special sound that deserves to be heard." So states Wayman Wong in the New York Daily News. And in Playbill, Mr. Wong says, "Chances are, he sounds like Mathis. When it comes to high and heavenly voices, I doubt even St. Peter has heard one as angelic as Marcus Simeone's." Marcus will present his Tribute to the Legendary Johnny Mathis in Le Dôme after exclusive engagements in New York City. Bill Van Sant, formerly of Worrall Community Newspapers, in reviewing Marcus's previous show at The Manor, called his performance "beautiful and haunting."

Tavern on the Green

Wednesday, August 17th, 8pm
Tavern on the Green, Central Park at West 67th Street, NYC
Dinner Reservations: 212-873-3200
Marcus has been invited to entertain in the Tavern's fabled Chestnut Room for a special one night dinner engagement. This is the room which hosted a number of legendary performers and was the site of Nancy LaMott's recently released final live recording.
Before it was a restaurant, Tavern on the Green was home to the sheep that grazed on Central Park's nearby Sheep Meadow! Constructed in 1870 and designed in Victorian Gothic style by architect Jacob Wrey Mould, the building continued to house sheep until 1934, when legendary NYC builder Robert Moses campaigned to turn it into a fancy restaurant. The sheep were moved to Prospect Park and WPA workers were used to renovate the structure's interior. In 1976, after being shut down for three years and undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation, it was re-opened, and once again it is one of Central Park's premier attractions.

This will be Marcus' first-ever appearance performing at the MAC Awards. A three-time nominee and winner of the 2004 award as male vocalist, Marcus has also been nominated in the duo and group category this year along with his duets partner Eva&#nbsp;Ladas. Marcus & Eva's show, "2", played a brilliant run in downtown's Duplex Theatre which was labeled a "major event in NYC cabaret" by one critic.


The MAC Awards are presented annually to honor achievements in cabaret, comedy and jazz. The Awards encompass nearly 20 categories, including vocalists and vocal groups, piano bar and jazz performers, comedy and musical comedy performers, impersonators, writers of songs and special material, directors, musical directors and technical directors, recordings, and more.
There will be a very special tribute to the late Dick Gallagher, featuring Patti Lupone, Karen Mason and Lina Koutrakos. Cabaret's grand dame, Julie Wilson, will perform a special number in memory of Bobby Short.
"I am so proud of our community," says Executive Producer and MAC President, Barry Levitt, who is producing his fourth MAC Awards event. "Since MAC's creation in 1983, many of the performers who have appeared on our stages have branched out to successful careers in recording, Broadway and off-Broadway, television and film. With this year's event, we will honor Keely, Kenny, George and Mario, some of the greats who represent cabaret, comedy and jazz. But this evening also celebrates all the wonderful, bright, up and coming talent – both onstage and off – keeping the tradition alive in MAC's 70+ member clubs throughout New York City and nationwide."
The Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC) was founded in 1983. Its mission is to advance the art and business of live entertainment. A trade association, its activities are designed to heighten public awareness of the contributions and vitality of the performing arts of cabaret, comedy and jazz, to build its current and future audiences, and to speak out as an influential voice on behalf of MAC members and the industry at large. Members of MAC include cabaret, comedy and jazz artists, directors and musical directors, technical directors, musicians, club owners and booking managers, composers and lyricists, journalists and publicists, artists' managers and agents, and friends and supporters of live entertainment.

Reviewing last season's show, Gary Walker of The Desert Sun wrote: "Special recognition should be given to the tender counter-tenor dynamics of Simeone, who made the lesser-known songs as delightful as the many evergreens that had the audience going with the flow."
Musical Chairs is an ASCAP composer/lyricist concert series and features a revolving company of top local & regional artists with occasional special guests from Hollywood, Broadway and Cabaret. It is produced in association with the Palm Canyon Theatre, and Equity Theatre.

Past Appearances 2004

Marcus & Eva: 2
Classic and Contemporary Duets
Musical Director Tedd Firth
Bassist Marco Brehm
Directed by Lina Koutrakos
This first-ever duets show from Marcus and Eva will present the extraordinary works of a host of renown writers, bringing their celebrated voices and interpretive gifts to the songs of Rodgers & Hart, Bacharach & David, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Jimmy Webb, Roger Miller, and many more. Accompanied by musical director Tedd Firth and bassist Marco Brehm, two of the finest musicians currently on the scene, this show is directed by acclaimed singer/songwriter/director Lina Koutrakos, author of the Marcus & Eva staple "Don't I Love You". Marcus and Eva have been appearing together in each other's cabaret shows to enormous praise, and Eva is coming off her very successful first appearance at The Mabel Mercer Foundation's New York Cabaret Convention, an event at which Marcus previously appeared twice.
Eva Ladas and Marcus Simeone met on the Manhattan cabaret circuit. Since that fateful meeting, they have gone on to virtually define what one columnist recently described as a new "golden age of New York cabaret"; a reference to the quality and diversity of the new generation of performers now appearing on Manhattan's small stages. Both Marcus and Eva are universally regarded for their heart-wrenching interpretations of ballads and are equally at home with jazz, pop, and rhythm & blues; bringing their own flavor and passion to the material they touch. Writing about Eva in Cabaret Hotline, critic Stu Hamstra remarked "vocal abilities that are impossible to believe... her multi-lingual show had me on the edge of my seat for the whole, incredibly short, hour." Show Business critic David Hurst stated "Simeone has a beautiful voice that he wields with authority and elegance...[he] could easily play the top rooms in New York." This show will bring these two acclaimed voices together to create a truly memorable event.
''The presence of these two amazing vocalists on the
same stage, singing solos and duets, should be
recognized as a major event in NYC cabaret."
— Stu Hamstra, reviewing "2" in Cabaret Hotline, Nov. 18, 2004
"With their sweet, silvery voices, swapping solos
and sharing harmonies, [a] highly pleasing hour of
song that shows off each of them to advantage....
A smartly-conceived program"

In this show, Marcus' first tribute of any kind, he covers not only one of the great influences on his own work, but one of the most enduring concert and recording artists of all time. "Answer Me," "Wonderful, Wonderful," "Misty," "There Goes My Heart," "It's Not For Me To Say," and "Chances Are" are among the towering hits which Johnny Mathis has enjoyed over more than five decades as a chart-topping icon.
Marcus will bring his own special magic to the songs Johnny made famous, as well as offer a personal homage to the man for whom Columbia Records pioneered the "greatest hits" album, now an industry tradition. Johnny Mathis, who began his career on small stages in San Francisco and New York, continues to sell out Radio City Music Hall and still holds the record for continuous weeks (490) of being on the Billboard Top Albums Chart.

In this show, Marcus covers a wide range of material from composers as diverse as Billy Strayhorn and the Gershwins to contemporary writers such as Maria Gentile and Nicholas Levin, who wrote the title song "Cat on a Leash" for the show. With no specific theme, there is an underlying thread about prejudice, about identity, and about facing the past through metaphorical nuances. In homage of this latest act, during its initial downtown run, critic Wayman Wong of The New York Daily News wrote: "Simeone proved once again that the sky's the limit for his stratospheric high tenor and his talent. He's got his own voice, as a singer and as an artist... a special sound that deserves to be heard."

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
