As a pop vocalist and songwriter, he has collaborated with musical giants, including Elton John, David Byrne, and Joni Mitchell. His musical output has been wondrously varied and prolific, including a historic re-creation of Judy Garland’s 1961 comeback concert that was performed to sold-out, adoring crowds in New York, Paris, Toronto, Los Angeles and London. His last album was a setting of nine Shakespeare sonnets. For this highlyanticipated show in Alice Tully Hall, Wainwright delves into his catalogue, including songs that have shaped him as an artist and may preview tracks from his forthcoming pop album, to be released in Spring of 2020. Through a set list created specially for his American Songbook debut, Rufus will build a singular viewpoint of American song through his unique, unmistakable lens.

IMMIGRANT ARTISTS FROM FRANCE, GERMANY, SPAIN, ISRAEL, BAHRAIN, SOUTH KOREA, BRAZIL, ARGENTINA BAND TOGETHER TO PERFORM INSPIRATIONAL MASHUP OF 
GOD BLESS AMERICA/GIVE ME YOUR TIRED 
 

IMMIGRANTS FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE RECORDED THE SONGS (WHICH WERE WRITTEN BY IRVING BERLIN, AN IMMIGRANT HIMSELF) AT A JEWISH SYNAGOGUE IN RESPONSE TO TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL DELIBERATELY MISQUOTING THE POEM AFFIXED TO THE STATUE OF LIBERTY


Arts for Immigrants, a new theater company shedding light on immigration issues through art and providing performance opportunities to immigrant artists, today released a powerful new video of immigrant artists from France, Germany, Spain, Israel, Bahrain, South Korea, Brazil and Argentina performing a very special rendition of God Bless America/Give Me Your Tired, for the new year. Produced & arranged by Grammy nominated composer Assaf Gleizner and MTC Music Academy and conducted & directed by Tegan Miller, the beloved song was filmed at Congregation Rodeph Sholom on December 11, 2019 and sung by a choir of immigrant artists from all over the globe.


Arts For Immigrants partnered with Team TLC NYC, a grassroots organization committed to supporting asylum seekers in New York City, to present the video. 


In August, the top immigration official in the Trump Administration, Ken Cuccinelli, deliberately misquoted the words to the poem "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor" which is part of a systematic effort to not only make immigration into the US more difficult, but to also damage the image of immigrants. This is taking a big toll on immigrants who are currently in the US trying to make a life for themselves, as well as new applicants hoping to get a visa and move to the United States.

MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2020 AT 7:30PM

 The York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director; Evans Haile, Executive Director), dedicated to the development of new musicals and rediscovery of musical gems from the past, as part of its 50th Anniversary season celebration, will present a special events during the month of January, a staged concert of the 1969 Broadway musical Celebration written by the legendary songwriting team Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones. Both special events will take place at The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter’s (entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue).

On a deserted city street in winter, a group of ragged Revelers perform a modern version of the ancient ritual battle between Winter and Summer, the Young and the Old. Inspired by Peter Brook and Joseph Chaikin’s Open Theatre, _Celebration now makes its grand return to New York at The York Theatre, fifty-one years (and five days) after its opening on Broadway. This newly rewritten version, staged in 2016 by the New Line Theatre in St. Louis, was hailed by the critics. Bawdy, touching, and full of surprises, Celebration_ is a major milestone in Jones and Schmidt’s search to find new forms for the American musical. David Glenn Armstrong (York’s recent concert of I Do! I Do!; York Muftis including Plain & Fancy) directs, with music direction by Deniz Cordell (York Mufti’s Panama Hattie and Lolita, My Love). Casting is by Carol Hanzel. An starry cast of performers will be announced shortly. Tickets are priced at $50$45 for York Members, $40 for York Plus! Members. ONE-NIGHT ONLY: Monday, January 27, 2020 at 7:30pm.*

Tickets may be purchased by calling (212) 935-5820, online at www.yorktheatre.org, or in person at the box office at the York Theatre at Saint Peter’s (Citicorp Building, entrance on East 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue), Monday through Friday (12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.).
