The show is presented as part of HAPPY * CRY * PRETTY!
HAPPY * CRY * PRETTY! is an 8-week performance series presented by TWEED TheaterWorks, Kevin Malony Artistic Director.
Performance artist David Cale's first all singing show of his original songs.
Performance artist David Cale's songs have been featured in his musical "Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky" at Playwrights Horizons and 600 Highwaymen's "Employee of the Year" at The Public Theater. He has written lyrics for songs sung by artists including Elvis Costello and Debbie Harry.
"Songs for Charming Strangers" marks the first time in NYC that he's assembled an evening singing his own songs. From the deeply emotional "Will I Ever Love A Man Again?" to the comically raucous "All the Escorts and the Cocaine (Will Never Take the Place of Me)", from his lyrically poetic collaboration with Carol Lipnik "A History of Kisses" to the sea shanty "Man at Sea", Cale's original songs cross a wide array of styles but have an emotional complexity akin to his acclaimed solo performance works. For "Songs for Charming Strangers" Cale will be accompanied by Matthew Dean Marsh on piano.
DAVID CALE is the writer and performer of ten solo works including "A Likely Story" (The New Group), "Lillian" (Playwrights Horizons, Obie Award) and "Deep in a Dream of You" (Public Theater, Bessie Award). He wrote the book, lyrics, co-composed the music for, and appeared as Floyd in the musical "Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky" (Playwrights Horizons, Outer Critics Circle Nomination). He wrote the songs for 600 Highwaymen's "Employee of the Year" (UTR Public Theater, Bessie Nomination), and has written lyrics for songs sung by artists including Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, John Kelly and Jimmy Scott. As an actor he appears in films including "The Slaughter Rule" and "Pollock", and most recently he performed on stage in "The Total Bent" (Public Theater).
