Isaac Mizrahi returns to Café Carlyle for three special performances titled Isaac & on June 10, June 17 and June 24. Isaac’s previous three residencies in the room were sellouts, receiving widespread critical acclaim. He’ll be joined by his band of jazz musicians, led by Ben Waltzer, for an evening of eclectic tunes and charming storytelling. Each night a well-known friend will join him on stage for a few songs and banter. With a fresh stock of swag items to re-gift to audience members and a wealth of commentary on everything from prescription drugs to obsession with social media, audiences are sure to be delighted by this “founding father of Alt Cabaret,” according to the New York Times.
Performances will take place on Monday June 10, Monday June 17 and Monday June 24 at 8:45pm. Pricing begins at $110 per person / Bar Seating: $75 / Premium Seating: $160. Reservations can be made online via Ticketweb. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).
