The show is presented as part of "Sundays at Seven"
"Sundays at Seven" is a Series presented by TWEED TheaterWorks, Kevin Malony Artistic Director.
TWEED TheaterWorks (EST 1983), Kevin Malony Artistic director, has been partnering with Pangea for the past three years to present a stellar performance series on Sundays (and some others days!) that combines the best of the "old school' and the "up & coming" musical, performance, and theater artists that NYC has to offer. www.tweedtheater.org
"Nightclub Dream" 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).

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
