Susan Mack in “Yesterdays” in the Theater
June 1 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Following her recent sold-out performances, Susan Mack returns to Birdland Theater on Thursday, June 1 at 8:30pm with “Yesterdays.” The show will deliver a fresh and contemporary spin on a diverse, uplifting, and timeless set of beloved standards. These songs of yesterday transcend the era in which they were created, and their messages and the emotions they elicit are still powerful, relatable and relevant today.
Known for having “a voice as full-bodied as honey with impeccable pitch and delicious taste in music” (Broadway World), Susan will perform a selection of jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook including a heart-warming tribute to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald. From the iconic compositions of Duke Ellington and Jerome Kern to the classic tunes of Chick Corea and The Beatles, Susan will take you on a journey through the rich history and stories behind this music.
A proud and passionate native New Yorker, Susan has had a lifelong passion for music. Following a successful career in finance, she is thriving and making her mark in this new chapter. The unique combination of Susan’s jazz and cabaret singing, coupled with her “charm, wit and skill” (Theater Pizzazz) has earned her numerous accolades, including a nomination for Best Female Vocalist for the 2022 Annual MAC Awards. Her debut show in 2018, “Nobody Else But Me”, directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye, was also nominated for a MAC Award for Best Female Debut. Cabaret Hotspot commended her for her “incredible voice with sultry jazz overtones and respect for the lyric”.
