SPEAKER: GERALD ESKENAZI
Jerry Eskenazi takes us on a rollicking ride describing odd events that grabbed him during his more than 40 years as a sportswriter. From sleeping in a treehouse in the Amazon, to sparring verbally with Muhammad Ali, to being asked advice by Donald Trump, Jerry's career ranged far and wide, and from the time his stories were sent by Morse Code to the moment he became the Times's first reporter to send a story by computer.
ENTERTAINER: MICHAEL GARIN & MARDIE MILLIT
Partners both on and offstage, husband and wife piano/vocal duo Michael Garin and Mardie Millit have brought their unique blend of musical virtuosity and goofy charm to Manhattan audiences for the last two decades, from the legendary nightspot Elaine’s, to 54 Below, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, and the Rainbow Room, to name a few. Their performances during the pandemic, both online and in person at the West Bank Café, garnered them a 2022 MAC Award for Duo/Group. Michael, a Drama Desk Award winning composer/lyricist/performer, is the house pianist at the Roxy Hotel in Tribeca, where he plays his renowned musical mashups every Tuesday through Saturday. Michael and Mardie are also collaborating on a musical adaptation of Mary Astor’s Purple Diary by Ed Sorel. They are returning to the Beechman Theatre on Feb. 13th with their critically acclaimed Sorry-Grateful: One Sondheim Story in Letters and Song, in which they present this one-of-a-kind story of a lifelong correspondence between Mardie and the late Broadway legend, featuring an eclectic mix of songs from his entire catalog, performed in Michael & Mardie's uniquely personal style.
