The Duplex

New York, NY US

Mary Foster Conklin and Amy Engelhardt, two of New York City's most unique cabaret artists, are thrilled make good on their threat to finally share an evening at the Duplex to MAKE THEIR OWN FUN. Sprung from different dimensions of New Jersey’s underbelly and proud members of a mutual admiration society, these unique storytellers finally will make good their long-standing threat to perform an evening together. Joining them will be John DiPinto on piano and accordion, so the evening will run the gamut from soulful solos to daring duos and maybe even a twisted trio or two. There could even be a uke number, who can say? Amy Engelhardt spent 14 years in a lot of rental cars as the sole female writer/arranger and vocalist in Grammy-nominated, genre-busting vocal "band without instruments" The Bobs. Her solo CD, Not Gonna Be Pretty was hailed as the "unlikely and intriguing marriage of Nellie McKay and Meat Loaf.” Amy's cheeky rock score for BASTARD JONES (developed with a NAMT grant, workshopped last fall and off-off-Bway in 2016) was a Top 10 Finalist for the Richard Rodgers Award, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Conference and the Alec Baldwin Fellowship (the strangest trifecta ever). Amy is also the creator and Artistic Producer of TUNE IN TIME, New York’s “Olympics of Musical Theatre,” running monthly at the York. She currently splits her time between Los Angeles and New York.
