“SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kindhearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll” - The New York Times

 

American is a very bad boyfriend but why do I still love him? If we are potentially witnessing the death of the US as we know it, Chanteuse superstar Lady Rizo delivers a deeply personal musical eulogy unpacking the feelings for the country she was born in, cut with her trademark humor, wit and soaring voice. Backed by acclaimed cellist, guitarist and composer Yair Evnine and drummer/vocalist Justin Johnson, Rizo leads us to our own utopian island nation with no walls, only velvet curtains.

 

The ‘Cabaret Superstar’ (New York Magazine), comedienne and chanteuse invigorates the genre by creating vintage arrangements & theatrical explorations of pop songs from every decade. Lady Rizo (nee Amelia Zirin-Brown) co-created the cult caburlesque spectacular Lady Rizo & the Assettes in 2005.

 

In January 2010 she won her first Grammy on a duet with acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma that was released on a holiday album featuring Diana Krall, James Taylor and Alison Krauss among others. She also sings and records with multi-platinum recording artist Moby and was nominated for an MVPA for the choreography of the video for the single New York, New York featuring Debbie Harry.  Her distinctive, electric performance stylings take over OBERON for an unforgettable evening.

After a sold-out run in 2015, One Child Born: The Music of Laura Nyro returns to OBERON. This acclaimed one-woman show, featuring Kate Ferber, celebrates the music and creative force of the late singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer whose pop masterpieces—including “Eli’s Comin’,” “And When I Die,” “Save the Country,” and “Stoney End”—topped the charts in the ‘60s and ‘70s.
