This new series will feature Broadway stars in an intimate concert setting continuing with Tony nominee Sally Mayes in Story Hour. The New York Times calls her "a singer of incandescent ebullience, deliciously saucy." People Magazine describes her as "the kind of rich theatrical voice that elevates a show tune." And Time Magazine says, "Sally Mayes renders songs as richly nuanced as one-act plays."
Story Hour is a woman's journey through the stories of her life. Some of them will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will make you think, and hopefully, everyone will learn something on the way. The hilarious, heartbreaking, award-winning evening displays every song as a story, and also that Ms. Mayes is simply at the top of her game.
