Moss Hart

Last week, a new postage stamp (pictured) was issued, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of legendary playwright, director, and New York native Moss Hart. This week, a unique opportunity for a trip back in time with a talk by his widow, actress Kitty Carlisle Hart.

Mr. Hart was the director/playwright of comedies (with frequent collaborator George S. Kaufman) such as "The Man Who Came to Dinner," "You Can't Take It with You," "Once in a Lifetime," and "Light Up the Sky." He also directed "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot." Mrs. Hart will share an evening of stories and reminiscences that will include film clips and songs. It's tonight at 8pm at the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium in the Met Museum. Tickets are $25, available by calling 212.570.3949. More here, more on the stamp here.
Popular cabaret singer and comic Jamie deRoy seems to have fans and friends in equal measure, and both will turn up again on November 6th for an edition of Jamie deRoy & Friends at the West Bank Cafe, 407 W. 42nd [9th] 212.695.6909, on November 6th at 8:30pm. You'll hear a strong lineup of performers, including Kathy Brier (who recently played Tracy Turnblad in "Hairspray"), Taboo star Euan Morton, and a surprise guest. The evening benefits the NYC Police Foundation, there's a $20 donation and a two-drink minimum.
