Baby Jane Dexter ~ The Rules of the Road
Musical Director: Ross Patterson
Baby Jane Dexter's brand new show, The Rules of the Road, debuts at Metropolitan Room for twelve performances only beginning Friday, November 16 and running on consecutive Fridays and Saturdays through December 22. All shows at 7:00. Sharing the stage will be her respected musical partner Ross Patterson.
The Rules of the Road is the latest emotionally empowering and highly-charged show from this influential and beloved cabaret artist who never disappoints. Writing in The New York Times, Stephen Holden said of Ms. Dexter, “ The phrase "keeping it real," and all that it suggests certainly applies to Baby Jane Dexter, a longtime cabaret performer whose booming pop contralto is one of the more formidable voices on the New York nightclub stage." Her shows are filled with memorable anecdotes from life and a brilliant performing career as well as totally unforgettable song choices that have helped make her the local legend she remains today. This brand new show will include compelling songs by Irving Berlin, Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh and George Gershwin as well as by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Neil Diamond, Rufus Wainwright and Abbey Lincoln. As always in her shows, there will be her trademark unexpected twists and turns that laugh at life as well as leaving her audiences emotionally moved. About the new show, Ms. Dexter said, "I'm always excited when I discover songs that allow me to bring and share feelings in a new and even more direct way with the audience. I want them to leave with more than they came in with, and be glad about it!"
Critics and peers have honored Baby Jane Dexter through the years and she has received six major MAC Awards, two New York Nightlife Awards and two Back Stage Bistro Awards. A veteran of legendary war horses like Reno Sweeney, The Ballroom, Eighty Eight's, Blues Alley, The Kennedy Center and Weill Recital Hall, Ms. Dexter has performed at an endless array of major venues throughout the country over the years. As always, Baby Jane challenges as much as she inspires. That is the hallmark that has sustained her extraordinary night club career. This will be her only New York appearance in a show not to be missed.
