Update from Producer Tanya Moberly - December 6, 2011

SALON – that unique, MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING, Weekly Open Mic Event, created and hosted by Mark Janas returns to Etcetera, Etcetera - 352 West 44th Street, NYC 10036 – on Sunday, December 11th from 7-10:30PM! (Sign-Up Begins at 6:15.)

The optional theme for the evening is “Holiday Party!”

Salon will be celebrating with a Secret Santa Stocking Stuffing Soiree! Since Salon is all about sharing all that is cultural and artistic with each other; we would really love it if you would contribute something in that vein to swap. A CD of your own, a CD that you absolutely love but have already downloaded to itunes and no longer need, a fabulous book that inspired you (and fits into a stocking), a postcard comping people to an upcoming show, etc...The passing along of used items is encouraged. The goal is to give from what we have, not to spend money we don't have. Of course, if art isn't your thing, chocolate & cash are always welcome.

Our Co-Hosts will be Definitely Dickens Carolers: Mick Bleyer, Vanessa Parvin, Sierra Rein & Adam West Hemming! These Four out of the MAC Award Winning Marquee Five (Julie Reyburn being the fifth) have just released their first CD “8-Track Throwback”. (www.marqueefive.com) They first Co-Hosted Salon back at The Algonquin and just finished a run of “City of Angels” at Goodspeed Opera House. (www.definitelydickens.com)

Our Salon Spotlight will feature Daryl Glenn, Alison Nusbaum & Ricky Ritzel! To quote The Daily News “Just in the Nick of time, cabaret legend Ricky Ritzel and cabaret legend (in his own mind) Daryl Glenn are back (for the very first time!) with their timeless and timely smash-up of two classic musical versions of A Christmas Carol . That marvelous cabaret newbie Alison Nusbaum will also be smashing (and perhaps smashed, as well). A RITZMAS DARYL will be at Don't Tell Mama, 343 West 46th St, NYC, December 7th at 7pm & December 14th at 7pm (Reservations: 212-757-0788) and at The Metropolitan Room, 34 W 22nd St, NYC , December 21stat 9:30 PM (Reservations: 212-206-0440).
