Put the ravages of 2017 behind you with a program of songs ranging from the apocalyptic to the merely silly, performed by cabaret stalwarts
Byron Nilsson and Malcolm Kogut in their second annual New Year’s Eve appearance at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany NY. It’s a 7 PM show, so you?ll get out early enough to find another party. And it costs a mere $15, which is less than you?ll spend on a decent bottle of champagne.
You’ll hear songs by Randy Newman, Noel Coward, Flanders & Swann, Tom Lehrer, and others, with an unlikely but compelling intrusion by
Vladimir Nabokov. The turn-of-the-(last)-century epic “Those Wedding Bells Shall Not Ring Out” will chill the blood, while “Come Home Father” will drive you to drink. And the doomsday finish is sparked by “20 Tons of TNT.”
Nilsson and Kogut have proven themselves at venues like Caffe Lena, the Van Dyck, Mohonk Mountain House, the Otesaga Hotel, and other places where the swells hang out. They also participated in the first First Nights that Albany held, and like to think that this performance gives
you all the diversity of a First Night without asking you to freeze your butt off going from place to place.
Ring in the new year by driving out the old one with us in an evening of laughter, song, and some comestible surprises. Call Steamer No. 10 at 518-438-5503 to reserve tickets, or go to www.steamer10theatre.org.
