The Duplex Cabaret Theatre - CANCELLED

10.04.15| 6:30pm (one set)

New York, NY US

UPDATE: Stars have just not aligned this weekend. Due to circumstances beyond control and too many to name, MAKE YOUR OWN FUN is not happening Sunday night in New York. All tickets will be refunded. Mary Foster Conklin, Amy Engelhardt and John DiPinto are thrilled to return to the Duplex to MAKE THEIR OWN FUN and yours. The “ladies” are sprung from different parts of New Jersey’s underbelly. Together with the "gentleman," this trio of natural storytellers invite you to join them for a drink, a laugh, and celebration of song. 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. John DiPinto was musical director for I'm Getting My Act Together And Taking it On The Road as part of the York Theatre’s' MUFTI series. and musical director, arranger and orchestrator for the NYMF musical Trav’lin, featuring the songs of composer J.C. Johnson. Broadway musician credits include: Footloose, [title of show], and Victor/Victoria. Off-Broadway: A Christmas Memory, Disaster! The Musical, Langston in Harlem, Nor‘mal, Streakin'!, Summer Of '42, The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin. As an actor/singer John has appeared in Oil City Symphony, Pump Boys And Dinettes, Smoke On The Mountain, and A Day In Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine. He and Mary Foster Conklin have appeared regularly in the Renegade Cabaret in its numerous spiffy venues: a lantern-lit balcony near the Highline, a fire escape on 14th Street, and a willow tree in the East Village. John is currently an Adjunct Professor at New Jersey City University, and works as a musical director for NYU’s Graduate Musical Theatre Writing program. He has composed original music for the University of Pennsylvania’s Mask & Wig shows and the children’s show KId Power And The Planet Protectors.
