Back by popular demand, join international recording artist and award winning songwriter, Doreen Taylor as she returns for a special one night only show to the iconic 'Don't Tell Mama'. Located on the renowned restaurant row in the heart of New York's theater district, Don't Tell Mama has hosted such talents as Liza Minnelli, Paul Newman, Joan Rivers, Bette Midler, Kristen Chenoweth and more.
Whether she's kicking it out with a full-blown Vegas-style production or seizing the simplicity a small setting can offer, DOREEN TAYLOR knows how to make "Magic" on any stage.
Taylor returns to the Big Apple after a wildly successful sold out New York City stop of her "Magic" tour, the sultry Los Angeles award winning songstress is returning to trade in the splash and dazzle of her sold-out arena concerts for something intimately special.
DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again), an elegantly revealing evening of unplugged songs and stories from her breakout album, Magic, brings the award-winning recording artist back to the heart of New York's theater district Thursday, Oct. 2nd at Don't Tell Mama, 343 W 46th Street (betw. 8th & 9th Aves.). Show time is 8 p.m. Seating begins 7:30 p.m.
Magic, the album, showcases Doreen's talents as not only a vocalist, but as a songwriter and musician. She prides herself on the raw, emotional vibe of her lyrics and abilities to engage an audience, and DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again) affords her the ultimate opportunity at a world-famous entertainment destination. Weaving acoustic renditions of songs from Magic with narration and story-telling about the making of the album and the woman who crafted it, the show is a rare look into the journey of a fiercely independent artist whose loyal fan base has pushed her social media following to more than 28,000 on Facebook and over 30,000 on Twitter.
Backed by a pair of acoustic musicians in a subdued setting, DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again) offers Doreen's unique fusion of soothing vocals, captivating melodies and engaging, upbeat showmanship in an understated homage to her Broadway roots.
It's not often that a mainstream, popular singer-songwriter does a cabaret-style show off Broadway. DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again) is a true testament to Doreen's ability as an artist to continually transcend musical boundaries. She does just that on Magic, which yielded the YouTube hit "Last Call (for Alcohol)" with country comfort and, as the Buffalo News points out, "is notable for the diversity of its content. Taylor can do straight-up contemporary music, but she is known to tackle standards like 'Summertime' and 'The Way You Look Tonight' with equal conviction." The Huffington Post calls her "an excellent performing artist to keep your eyes on,"
Doreen's hometown upbringing gave way to a sudden and remarkable career at an early age when her town, family, congregation and most importantly Doreen herself, realized the true power and strength of her voice. While some singers feel performing since childhood has burned them out or shown them the wrong side of the industry, she believes her young start has only made her stronger as a vocalist, songwriter and performer. Doreen lays out all her emotions on stage to be transported into the hearts and ears of everyone in attendance. Showmanship has always been as important to her as the music behind it. And DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again) showcases another side in her evolution as an artist to be reckoned with.
