Sunday, December 12 @ 7pm

Birdland Theater

$30 cover/$20 minimum

MAC Award Nominee and BroadwayWorld Award Winner Ari Axelrod returns to his cabaret home to debut his new show “Ari’s Arias.” Axelrod invites you to enjoy an evening of standards…well, not just standards – songs that are standards, songs that should be standards, and songs that will one day become standards. Featuring an eclectic selection with everything from Frank Loesser, Bock & Harnick, and Stephen Sondheim to Jason Robert Brown, Sarah Bareilles, and Dolly Parton, “Ari’s Arias” promises compositions you know and love, served with a unique twist. If you like music from the 20s-that is, the 1920s and 2020s-and everything in between, this is a show for you.

Ari Axelrod is an actor, director, singer, and Jewish activist. His award-winning show, “A Celebration of Jewish Broadway,” has had multiple sold-out performances at Birdland, one of which featured six-time Emmy & Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh as his guest. The award-winning show has also had sold-out performances in St. Louis, Chicago, Boca Raton, Ann Arbor, and via Zoom during COVID. In 2020, he received a MAC Award nomination for Best Male Vocalist and won the BroadwayWorld Award for Best Live Zoom Performance. Ari Axelrod’s first solo cabaret, “Taking the Wheel,” was directed by Tony Award winner Faith Prince and music directed by multiple MAC Award winner Alex Rybeck, and has been performed in numerous cities around the country. Some select theatre credits include: Off-Broadway: Milk and Honey (Cantor/Sheep Boy) at The York Theatre Company. Regional: Weathervane Theatre: Last Five Years (Jamie), West Side Story (Riff), Hairspray (Corny Collins). Repertory Theatre of St. Louis: One Man Two Guvnors (Ensemble).

He is also the founder of Bridging the Gap, a performance studio dedicated to training the next generation of solo performers. Bridging the Gap has been featured at Birdland and Feinstein’s 54/Below. As a director, his work has been seen at Paper Mill Playhouse, Birdland, Feinstein’s/54 Below, The Green Room 42, and Don’t Tell Mama.
