October 24, 25, 26 at Moscow 57 on Delancey
Moscow57 and The Three Tomatoes are pleased to announce that they have teamed up for a fundraiser event to support the global work of UN Women (the United Nations entity for gender equality) dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls.
Let’s Misbehave! A Musical Revue of the Roaring ‘20s. Return to the speakeasy days of the roaring 1920s with the jazzy tunes of Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and Mae West in this fabulous revue performed by Karen Nason. There will be three performances on Friday and Saturday evenings, October 24 and 25, 6-8 PM and Sunday afternoon Oct. 26, 3-5 PM.
Moscow57 will become a “prohibition speak easy” and attendees are encouraged to dress in roaring 20s clothes. Ellen Kaye, co-owner of Moscow57 says, “We are delighted to support the important work of UN Women, and are so excited to bring Mae West and this terrific music to Moscow57. This will be a fun evening.”
Karen Nason was born to play Mae West. Her knockout performance of one of the songs from the revue, “Stand Back Love” won her this year’s Tomatoes’ Got Talent Contest, an event that was created by The Three Tomatoes, a lifestyle guide for “women who aren’t kids” to showcase the talent of women over 40. Karen was a fixture in the NYC music scene in the 1990s, and took some time off to raise her kids. Now she’s back on the scene.
Cheryl Benton, founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a lifestyle web site and newsletter for “women who aren’t kids”, and board member of the US National Committee for UN Women says, “Mae West was a woman who was ahead of her time and spent her career bursting through doors marked ‘male only’, and fighting for sexual equality”.
Tickets are $20 which will be donation to the US National Committee for UN Women (a 501C3 entity).
There is a $20 food and drink minimum.
Tickets will be available online via The Three Tomatoes www.thethreetomatoes.com.
Moscow57 is located at 162 ½ Delancey Street, New York City.
