Posted by: Official_Press_Release 06:46 pm EDT 04/17/24











THE GREEN ROOM 42 – the intimate concert venue dubbed Broadway’s “off-night hotspot” by The New York Times – will present the return of Tony Award-nominated Broadway favorite Sally Mayes in “Now and Then: The Stories,” the latest installment of her new concert series, on Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 PM. Known best for her Tony nominated performance in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of She Loves Me, People Magazine describes Mayes as “the kind of rich theatrical voice that elevates a show tune.” The original Keely of the cult musical Pete ‘n’ Keely realized she has a lot of great arrangements, a plethora of stories, and a desire to sing ALL of them. She has run the gamut with her theatrical concerts and recordings from Broadway, jazz, and country, to pop and the American Songbook. Now is going to “sing ‘em all and stay here all night.” She will be joined by music director Tedd Firth on piano, Michael O’Brien on bass, Jessica Wright on violin and vocals, and Carolyn Montgomery on vocals.

Sally comments: “I have always been a storyteller, and I love that aspect of what I do the most. I also have a great affection for the opportunities I have been given both on and off Broadway and also in recording, and some of the best arrangements I have done over the years come from that love. I cannot wait to remind people of this stuff, and I am having so much fun!”

Her concert series will conclude with “Now and Then: The Great Big Huge Broadway” on Thursday, June 20 at 7:00 PM.

Sally Mayes made her Broadway debut in Cy Coleman’s Welcome to the Club. Her performance won critical praise along with a Theatre World Award and an Outer Critics Circle nomination as one of Broadway’s Outstanding Newcomers. On Broadway, Sally is perhaps best known for her performance in the Roundabout Theater revival of She Loves Me, for which she won Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle nominations. Sally appeared as Aunt Corene in Urban Cowboy (Drama Desk nomination). She drew raves as Mae West in the national tour of Dirty Blonde and also appeared in the Broadway revival of Steel Magnolias. Her film and television credits include “Alpha House,” “City Hall,” “Double Parked,” “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Sex and the City,” and “The Job.” Sally also appears on countless cast recordings, including Closer Than Ever, She Loves Me, Das Barbecu, Bye Bye Birdie, Lost in Boston, Unsung Musicals, Unsung Sondheim, and The Night of the Hunter. Sally has five solo albums: The Dorothy Fields Songbook, Our Private World: The Comden & Green Songbook, The Story Hour, Boys and Girls Like You and Me, and Valentine. Sally’s much-anticipated nightclub appearances have garnered her rave reviews from coast-to-coast; she has been nominated for 12 MAC Awards, and has won two Bistro Awards for excellence in cabaret and recordings.

Sally Mayes will perform “Now and Then: The Stories” on Thursday, May 16 at 7:00 PM at The Green Room 42 (570 Tenth Avenue at 42nd Street, on the 4th Floor of Yotel). The cover charge ranges from $20-$50. A livestream option is available for $20. For tickets, please visit

“Tony Bennett: A Tribute”

Nelson Aspen and Allyson Briggs have a new tribute show to the great Tony Bennett who passed away last July at the age of 96. In 2012, after meeting the legendary crooner around Manhattan, Aspen was invited to Bennett’s home overlooking Central Park to do a TV segment on his impressive work as a painter. The two spent several hours together, leaving Aspen forever dazzled by not only the star’s talents, but insight, humility and hospitality. “Tony Bennett: A Tribute” will feature clips from Aspen’s time with the artist born Anthony Dominick Benedetto, reflections on Bennett’s humanitarian work, career highlights, and support of young musicians. And, of course, plenty of songs from the great American songbook that Bennett infused with his signature style. Just as Bennett was famous for his duets with other singing stars, Aspen will be joined by Allyson Briggs, renowned bandleader of Manhattan's hottest jazz band, Fleur Seule. Aspen promises it will be an intimate way for audiences to remember Bennett’s artistry, life and legacy.
