An Evening of Song and Story
Friday, Jan. 21 & Saturday Feb. 5 at 7PM
Tim Connell returns to Pangea for an encore performance of Dreamin’ Again…, an evening of song and story. Joining Connell is his collaborator and music director, James Followell, at the piano. Directed by Steven Petrillo, the performance includes musical numbers like The Remedy by Jason Mraz, Billy Joel’s summer in Highland Falls, Playbill by John Bucchino, and a unique interpretation of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes.
Connell made his critically acclaimed debut at Carnegie Hall in 2019 with the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s Centennial Celebration of Jerome Kern, All The Things You Are. That same year he was invited to perform as part of the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s 30th New York Cabaret Convention at Jazz at Lincoln Center. In November 2020, he was featured in Shades of Romance 2.0, a livestream concert for CVRep
Theatre. And, in March of this year, Connell appeared in Look to the Rainbow – Mabel Mercer Foundation’s Livestream St. Patrick’s Day Show.
Alix Cohen, in Woman Around Town, said of his debut at Pangea
“Tim Connell is a find. […] In collaboration with MD/pianist James Followell and director Seven Petrillo, the performer offers reflections on isolation and coming out of it with sensitivity, wit, and intelligence. […] And oh, that lustrous voice!”
Stephen Mosher, in Brooadwayworld.com, writes, “Tim Connell returned to the cabaret stage Tuesday night with a new show titled Deamin’ Again, and although there is some ambiguity to the meaning behind the title, rather a lack of explanation for the choice of names, no real specificity as to what Mr. Connell might be dreaming of, it doesn’t matter because he wasn’t the one doing the dreaming on Tuesday – the audience was. And in that dream, they were happy, satisfied, fulfilled, and they didn’t want to wake up. That is the power of a great cabaret show. And Dreamin’ Again is a great cabaret show”
