Syracuse native and New York City cabaret singer Marissa Mulder will showcase the music of singer-songwriter Tom Waits with "Tom … in His Words" Saturday, May 20 at 7 pm at the Levitas Center for the Arts.
Mulder explores some of Waits' best-known songs, such as "Downtown Train" and "Ol' 55," as well as lesser-known treasures like "Broken Bicycles" and "Alice." Waits — a 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee — has always operated on the fringes, blending strains of jazz and the blues, even vaudeville, into his rock ballads and scores.
The New York Times said " far and away the season's best cabaret show. It's everything the genre can be but almost never is. "
Prices: $ 25 general admission; $ 35 for ring side tables.
