David Cale's first evening of his original songs and his ever evolving musical collaboration with Matthew Dean Marsh, More Songs for Charming Strangers is a sharply witty and emotionally penetrating song cycle of love at large. Focusing on the nuances of romantic relationships, pick ups, blind dates and unlikely seductions, and by turns sensual, startling and sometimes hilarious, the songs in More Songs for Charming Strangers have all the qualities of the monologues for which David is nationally acclaimed. David's lyrics have been sung by a wide array of artists including Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, John Kelly, Carol Lipnik and Jimmy Scott. A recent recipient of a 2018 Lucille Nortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show for his hit solo, Harry Clarke, starring Billy Crudup, David's new solo musical Were Only Alive for a Short Amount of Time, also in collaboration with Matthew, premieres this Fall on the Main Stage of the Goodman Theatre, Chicago.
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). 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."
