My point of view: Ari Axelrod | Times Square Chronicles
Having a grandson named Ari and another grandson (Leo) visiting Israel this week, it was a no-brainer to accept an invitation to see cabaret sensation Ari Axelrod at the Birdland Theater last night. Every seat was occupied and the conversations with customers before the show announced that we were going to have an extraordinary cabaret experience. One thing is for sure, not all the superlatives you’ve heard or the rave reviews (and there are many) written about Ari Axelrod are fake news. This artist connects with an audience in a very special way on all levels. Make sure it’s on your cabaret list.
Check out the photos from last night:
MAC Award nominee for Best Male Vocalist, BroadwayWorld Award winner and recipient of The Jewish Week’s prestigious 36 Under 36 award, Ari Axelrod returned to his cabaret last night for an encore performance of his critically acclaimed show, Ari’s Arias. . According to the dictionary, an aria is an accompanied and elaborate melody sung by a single voice. For Ari, an aria is any moment in life when words alone fail to express how we feel, and so to express it fully, we add music to those moments to elevate and sing them. From Bernstein and Sondheim to Bareilles and Bucchino, join Ari as he takes you on a ride through some of his favorite tunes.
