SONGS at 75 celebrates Tom Wilson Weinbergs milestone birthday with songs written from 1959 to 2020. Tom has selected songs from his cabarets, revues and musicals. The 250 songs in Weinbergs trunk are his babies and his autobiography. For SONGS at 75, his favorite babies get 75 minutes in the spotlight.
Performances are in the Mark Segal Ballroom, which normally accommodates 150.
WE WILL SEAT 25 PEOPLE AT EACH OF THE 4 SHOWS.
Chairs, door handles, etc. will be sanitized before each show. Masks are a must. Seating will be socially distant but well all be together.
All ticket income supports the Arcila-Adams Trans Resource Center at William Way.
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.

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
