The perfect antidote to Tax Day! Join us for an evening of songs that Shaw enjoyed, including popular music of his time, works by many of your favorite American Songbook writers! For this very special event, we’ll be returning to the original home of Project Shaw, the beautiful Players Club at 16 Gramercy Park South. Our stars of the evening will include Matt Bogart, Robert Cuccioli, Darius De Haas, Karen Mason, Christine Pedi, Karen Ziemba, and more!

We’ll bring you a sparkling evening of cabaret!

Candles, Cabaret tables, Cash Bar, and an evening of songs performed by some of New York’s most exciting singers!

Gilbert & Sullivan, Rodgers & Hart, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, with Operetta, Opera, Music Hall, and many of your favorites to sing along with!

Though not commonly remembered, Shaw was an accomplished pianist and relished the popular songs of the day. Since he lived from 1856 to 1950 we’ve plenty to choose from!

You may be aware of Shaw’s beginnings as a music critic of classical music, but it’s not commonly known that Shaw was an ardent fan of popular songs of the day. Considering he lived to be 94 that embraces a lot of pop tunes! He’d play them on the piano and even entertain at parties, so for this special evening we’ll bring you some of the songs he particularly enjoyed; some of your favorites and some that are sure to be new to you!


All General Seating.

Last year’s Shaw Songs event was so much fun, we’re returning to The Players with another evening of popular songs. Nobody more relished the songs of the day more than Shaw (he not only enjoyed singing them but also playing them on the piano at social gatherings!), and since he lived between 1856 and 1950 we’ve a golden wealth of material to draw from! For the price of our regular Project Shaw performance, you’re invited to a party. We’re also looking forward to being back in the legendary Players Club.
