SONGS at 75, Tom Wilson Weinberg
SONGS at 75 celebrates a milestone birthday with Tom Wilson Weinberg's songs, from 1959 to 2020. In this show he sings from his cabarets, revues and musicals. Read the praise below so he doesnt have to say it. The 250 songs in Weinbergs trunk are his babies and his autobiography. For SONGS at 75, he gives his favorite babies a moment in the light.

Performances are on Oct 9, 8:00; Oct 10, 5:00 and 8:00; and Oct 11, 3:00, in the ballroom at William Way LGBT Center, which can seat 150 people. WELL SEAT 25 AT EACH OF THE 4 SHOWS. Chairs and door handles, etc. will be sanitized before each show. Audiences will be socially distant but all together in this room. Masks are a must. The show runs 75 minutes.

SONGS at 75 is produced by Cabaret Vérité and Chris-Tyler Young. The entire ticket income supports the Arcila-Adams Trans Resource Center at William Way.

Snippet reviews:

Weinberg's music is catchy and expressive. He is a lyricist of extraordinary talent. - Douglas Keating, Philadelphia Inquirer

The romantic songs are every bit as uplifting as the satirical songs are bitingly funny. - Gary L. Day, Philadelphia Gay News

Refreshingly clear-headed and wide ranging, Weinberg knows how to laugh at human follies, how to think and how to reach the heart. - Arthur Friedman, Boston Herald

A highly talented songwriter, hashing out issues via wonderful lyrics and melodies. - Tommi Avicolli Mecca, First Hand

A spirit of cheerfully assertive militancy tempered with humor and musical savvy. - Stephen Holden, New York Times

The warm heart of an old-time hoofer and the big city brains of a Talking Head, anyone, gay or straight, will feel terrific all the way home. - Dan Geringer, Philadelphia Daily News
