Add to Calendar 2013-05-16 7:00 & 9:00 2013-05-16 A Tribute to Bobby Short at The Allen Room "The lyric is my Bible", Bobby Short once said, describing the aesthetic stance to which he hewed through a seven-decade career as a professional entertainer. Short spent consequential time during his last four decades as resident singer-pianist at the Cafe Carlyle on the Upper East Side, where, on a nightly basis "armed with a gravelly baritone and perfect diction" he demonstrated the triumph of character over beauty. Perhaps the swanky surroundings misled observers about the magnitude of Short's accomplishment (which were on full display at several memorable JALC galas). Michael Feinstein and Music Director Tedd Firth will lay such misunderstandings to rest as they host some of the brightest stars of cabaret and Broadway, including saxophonist Andy Farber and vocalists Paula West, T. Oliver Reed, and Barbara Carroll, to perform Short's signature songs and more. The Allen Room, Broadway At 60th Street false MM/DD/YYYY
