Cabaret Singer Marilyn Maye Attracts New Audiences
What the critics are praising is something midwest fans have known for decades: that Marilyn Maye is a master of the lost art of connecting with audiences. She recently stopped by our studios and told KCUR's Alex Smith about her philosophy of performing.
Cabaret singer Marilyn Maye is probably best known as one of Johnny Carson's favorite guests. She appeared on the Tonight Show more than any other singer. And she's performed all over the world, but still calls Kansas City home. Recently, Marilyn Maye has been rediscovered by younger audiences in New York City and her shows there have gotten glowing reviews.
Marilyn Maye will be performing from March 22 - 25, 2009 at Jardine's.
