Praise for Marilyn:

"No entertainer gives you more in terms of great music, great theater, and great comedy." - Opera News
"Her show is not to be missed! It's a master class in singing conducted by a polished pro who majored in 'unforgettable.'" - New York Observer
"Her voice is full and rich and perfectly in tune, and she displays a voluptuous enjoyment of singing. She is a symbol of resilience." - New York Times
"She is tireless in keeping it fresh…most singers do not have the stamina nor the ability to do what she does". - Michael Feinstein

MARILYN MAYE is a cultural and musical treasure. She is a highly praised singer, actress, director, arranger and educator. Her entire life has been committed to the art of song and performance. After working as a professional singing performer since she was 15 years old, she was "discovered" by Steve Allen during her eight-year engagement at the Colony in Kansas City. He presented her many times on his national television show, which resulted in an RCA recording contract. She was a regular guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson where she appeared 76 times, as well as The Mike Douglas Show, The Merv Griffin Show, The Ed Sullivan Show, Hollywood Palace, Kraft Music Hall-and all the television shows that featured the music of the Great American Songbook.
Her place in the American Songbook history was assured when The Arts Council of The Smithsonian Institution included her RCA recording of "Too Late Now" in their significant album of the 110 Best American Compositions of the Twentieth Century. Ms. Maye's RCA recordings consist of 7 albums and 34 singles, including the first hit recordings of "Cabaret" and "Step to the Rear." Her versions of "Misty" and "Take Five" are noted as 'timeless' by jazz reviewers.
Maye's starring roles in theater include "Pistach" in Can Can, "Sally" and "Carlotta" in Stephen Sondheim's Follies, and "Mame" in Jerry Herman's Mame and "Dolly" in Hello, Dolly. Inspired by her repeated successes playing the irrepressible Dolly Levi, Maye recorded the album, "Marilyn Maye Sings All Of Jerry Herman's Hello, Dolly", with liner notes by Jerry himself, which has been released as a CD.
Marilyn sings to full houses each year in New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Palm Springs, Las Vegas, London and the Midwest. Among her many symphony concert appearances are: Philly Pops (3 times) in Philadelphia (Peter Nero, conductor), twice with the Phoenix Symphony (Doc Severinsen, conductor), Florida Philharmonic, Kansas City Symphony, Omaha Symphony, Tulsa Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Des Moines Symphony and others. Her recent one-hour PBS Television Special has been praised and aired numerous times.
Marilyn has been honored more than 60 times for her lifetime achievements in the world of music and entertainment. The twenty-two New York awards include the Legend Award from the New York's Nightlife Critics, as well as six awards from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs. Her hometown of Kansas City has honored Ms. Maye many times including a place in the American Jazz Museum's Walk of Fame and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gem Theater.
