Cabaret in the Music Room with Marin Mazzie & Jason Danieley
He Said/She Said A Benefit Evening
Sat, May 14, 2016, 8:30pm
Join us for the 22nd year of Cabaret in the Music Room, a Benefit for Caramoor with three-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie and Emmy-nominated Jason Danieley. Broadway’s on- and off-stage golden couple discovered their romance 14 years ago, as the mythological lovers Dido and Aeneas in Charles L. Mee’s The Trojan Women: A Love Story, and have since appeared together in productions of Next to Normal, Brigadoon, and 110 in the Shade, as well as co-starring in countless cabaret performances. Most recently, Danieley is taking a solo cabaret act on the road: “Romantic Notions,” a deeply moving homage to his beloved.
