Performance artist, Mary Elizabeth Micari, continues her acclaimed journey of self-discovery filled with great humor and memorable music. This time she tackles her [first] marriage, her exploration into spirituality, and the 90s so the show is peppered with tunes from that emotional period – both popular and rare tunes. This time, she’s joins forces with MAC Award winner, Tracy Stark, to create a breath-taking night of music and memories. Utilizing unique instrumentation, the event will feature classical harpist, Richard Spendio, and rock drummer, John Dinello, playing an array of international instrumentation. This is Mary’s second appearance at the famed East Village club after a performance of the latest installment of her rousing retro show, Granny’s Blu-Mers.
