A cabaret by Stephen Kennedy Murphy | Featuring the songs of Cole Porter, Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf | Plus cocktail music from Nancy Winston

“I was new in New York when Julie, a delicious French singer invited me to visit her in Paris. To pay for the trip I got a job answering phones at The New Yorker. This is the story of my journey from The New Yorker to the beaches of the Riviera and cabarets of Paris and into its pages. Sometimes love takes you where you never thought to go.” —Stephen Kennedy Murphy
