Isaac Mizrahi - Cafe Carlyle
Through February 16, 2019 - New York
Isaac Mizrahi returns to Café Carlyle with an all-new show, Isaac Mizrahi: Queen Size, February 5 – 16. His previous two residencies in the room were sellouts, receiving widespread critical acclaim. Mizrahi will perform classics by Leonard Bernstein, Cat Stevens, Jimmy Webb, John Kander, Cole Porter, James Taylor and Jerome Kern. Once again, he'll be joined by his band of (handsome, thin, single) (maybe not single) jazz musicians, led by Ben Waltzer. Mizrahi will tell all-new hilarious stories and share life observations. Additionally, he'll have a fresh new stock of swag items to re-gift to audience members. No topics will be off-limits: politics, sex, prescription drugs, millennials. In a review of his Café debut, The New York Times noted "he is determined to challenge the cultural status quo and help blaze a path into a more liberated… his Café Carlyle engagement is a big deal." Vogue called his previous Café residency, "the hottest ticket at New York Fashion Week."
