Comstock said: “Barbara and I want to create an evening that celebrates coming together by being together in a small room sharing great songs.” Fasano adds: “I think it is a primal need right now – the coming together around the campfire to share stories, laughs, truths.”
Comstock and Fasano's combination of warmth, wit, swing and sensuality have made them a celebrated team in the nightclub world. This Metropolitan Room run will be their first major NY engagement since their 2011 show, "HELLUVA TOWN" at the Algonquin’s Oak Room (“Exhilarating” -- Stephen Holden, The New York Times). Of their previous sold-out Metropolitan Room engagement, The New York Post’s Frank Scheck raved, "Their joint venture is a capital idea. When they sing together the evening is transformed from collaboration to alchemy."
Winners of the New York Nightlife Award, Comstock and Fasano have been honored as musically savvy vocalists, recording artists, and writers of their numerous shows, winning an unprecedented three MAC Awards in one year including Best Vocal Duo and Outstanding Female Vocalist. Barbara’s CDs, THE GIRLS OF SUMMER and WRITTEN IN THE STARS, were also awarded Back Stage’s Record of the Year. Eric, the co-creator and star of the hit Off-Broadway revue OUR SINATRA, just released his fourth CD, BITTER/SWEET.
