Louis and Broadway and Cabaret star Karen Mason bring their new evening of song to NYC for the first time, performing Louis’ songs and songs by their dear mutual friend, Karen’s musical director of 16 years, the late Brian Lasser

“A dramatic tour de force!  Giving everything and more is what Ms. Mason does best.”

(New York Times)

“Mr. Rosen’s music is a continually shifting patchwork of blues, folk, jazz and pop as earthy, tuneful art song.” (New York Times)

A master interpreter… Mason produces a depth of sound and brilliance of color! (Chicago Tribune)

 "Songwriter Louis Rosen charts an irresistible landscape between pop music and art song….” (Bloomberg News)

 

KAREN MASON was most recently seen on Broadway as the wacky Queen of Hearts in Frank Wildhorn’s WONDERLAND.  In addition to the conniving Velma von Tussle in HAIRSPRAY, Ms. Mason originated the role of Tanya on Broadway in Abba’s MAMMA MIA! and was awarded a 2002 Drama Desk nomination as Best Actress. Other leading roles include Norma Desmond in SUNSET BOULEVARD, which she performed on Broadway and in Los Angeles for three years; Mazeppa in JEROME ROBBINS’ BROADWAY;  Rosalie in CARNIVAL ( Drama Desk nomination);  plus featured roles in Broadway’s TORCH SONG TRILOGY; AND PLAY ME A COUNTRY SONG. Karen won the Outer Critics Circle Award for her performance in AND THE WORLD GOES ROUND, and starred Off-Broadway in her own show, KAREN MASON SINGS BROADWAY, BEATLES AND BRIAN. 

A 10-time MAC Award winner, Karen has won the MAC Award for Major Female Vocalist of the Year for seven consecutive years. She has also won the 2006 Nightlife Award for Major Female Vocalist and three Bistro Awards. Karen has headlined Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Feinstein’s at The Regency, Rainbow & Stars, the Algonquin, Arci’s Place, The Supper Club and The Ballroom in NYC;  The Cinegrill and the UCLA/ASCAP Concert Series in Los Angeles; The Plush Room in San Francisco; and Davenport’s in Chicago.
