Mary Foster Conklin: LIFE IS A BITCH the poetry and lyrics of Fran Landesman
LIFE IS A BITCH -- an evening of songs by Fran Landesman, self-proclaimed poet laureate of lovers and losers, the Dorothy Parker of jazz lyrics, best remembered for The Nervous Set, the world's only beatnik musical, which flopped on Broadway, but two numbers All the Sad Young Men and Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most survived to become jazz standards.  The evening includes collaborations with Tommy Wolf, Alec Wilder, Bob Dorough, Roy Kral, Simon Wallace and Richard Rodney Bennett.  
Every joke has a switch/ Every joker a twitch/ Every high has a hitch/ Baby, life is a bitch.


"Full of salt and vinegar with the intensity and tough humor of someone who might have lived on the bohemian fringe in the late 40s and 50s, when the word hip meant something."  
Stephen Holden, New York Times

"Ravishing words and music presented with knowing dramatics and warm intelligence  Michael Dale. BroadwayWorld.com

 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."
