Sing Me a Story!, a celebration of the art of the ‘story song’, makes its world premiere from October 6-8 at the Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill as the final installment in its 2017 Cabaret Series. With a cast that features concert, recording, and stage stars Lisa Asher, Scott Coulter, and Tom Andersen, plus musical director Ian Herman, this new revue trains a spotlight on a very specific type of song – one that tells a story. Think of sixteen little one-act plays in one 80-minute show! Utilizing songs from the worlds of country, theatre, pop, and the Great American Songbook and featuring the work of such artists as The Beatles, Harry Chapin, Cole Porter, and the legendary Broadway songwriting team of John Kander and Fred Ebb, this show is guaranteed sweep you away – song by song, story by story.

Lisa Asher is an award-winning singer and actress most notable for her roles in Almost Heaven – The Songs of John Denver and Woody Guthrie’s American Song which she’s performed across the country. She has also performed in cabarets and concert halls around the world. When not touring with her acclaimed one-woman show I Am a Town, Ms. Asher resides in New York City.

Scott Coulter, winner of the MAC Award for Male Vocalist, has been a stalwart in Manhattan’s cabarets and clubs for the last two decades. Equally at home on the concert stage, he has toured with Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) in a revue of the popular composer’s songs. He has also toured in tributes to Jerry Herman (Hello, Dolly!) as well as his own cabaret act which includes a tribute to the legendary Brill Building Music. He resides in New York City.

Tom Andersen, curator of Bridge Street Theatre’s popular Cabaret Series, appeared in the long-running San Francisco hit Beach Blanket Babylon before moving to New York where he has enjoyed a varied musical career performing in all kinds of venues from cabarets to Town Hall to Carnegie Hall. A songwriter as well, his songs have been performed and recorded by artists around the globe, including John Davidson and Australian TV star David Campbell. He resides in New York City.

Ian Herman has served as musical director for such luminaries as Jane Olivor, Donna McKechnie, Judy Kaye, Anita Morris, and Karen Mason. His Broadway credits include Grease, Jelly’s Last Jam, Swing, and The Who’s Tommy.

Sing Me a Story! will be presented for three performances only, Friday October 6 and Saturday October 7 at 8:00pm and Sunday October 8 at 2:00pm, on the Bridge Street Theatre Mainstage, located at 44 West Bridge Street in the Village of Catskill, NY. $22 advance tickets can be purchased from BrownPaperTickets.com or by calling them at 800-838-3006. Tickets can also be purchased at the door one half hour prior to the performance on a space available basis for $25. Tickets for students age 21 and under are always $10. Bridge Streets Cabaret presentations have proven to be extremely popular in the past and tickets tend to sell out quickly, so pre-purchase is strongly recommended.

Curated by Tom Andersen himself, the Bridge Street Theatre Cabaret Series brings local audiences the finest talents from the cabaret world performing some of the greatest songs ever written in an intimate atmosphere.
