An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday and Sunday, repeating until May 14, 2014
New York, NY – April 7, 2014…. After a sold out performance at Broadway at Birdland actress/singer Maxine Linehan will next present a limited run of her solo show An American Journey, at famed Terminus Recording Studios in Time’s Square. Some of the legendary artists who have recorded there include Paul McCartney, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, John Legend, Andre Previn and Liza Minnelli. For this event, Terminus will be converted into a unique “pop-up cabaret performance space”.
The theatrical concert was conceived for Maxine and is being directed by Scott Siegel (creator/writer/host of The Town Hall’s Broadway by the Year series), with musical direction by the award-winning Tracy Stark and décor by Christopher Studley.
The Irish born Ms. Linehan, serves up a story that is both achingly personal and extraordinarily universal. In this one-hour performance, using a diverse catalogue of music that includes show tunes, country, and pop, she tells the story of leaving Ireland twelve years ago for life in America. Maxine taps into the shared experience of generation after generation of immigrants who have arrived in this country with big dreams and high hopes.
