BRIAN TOM O’CONNOR in THE ZEN OF SHOW TUNES
“The Zen of Show Tunes” is a cabaret romp through O’Connor’s favorite musical theater songs, some familiar, some rare, from the angle of a guy who tries to meditate but fails. He just can’t keep his monkey mind quiet. The show ranges from the tongue-in-cheek and the silly, through the dark emotions that challenge us all, and out again into the sunlight of theater music that make life worth living.
Brian Tom O’Connor is the co-creator of three hit “O’Connor & Vogel” cabaret shows with Debra Vogel – Guy & Doll, How to be Perfect, and Found & Lost. Critics have called the O’Connor & Vogel shows, “absolutely refreshing,” “thoroughly delightful,” “quite moving,” “a perfect mix between comedy and musicality,” and “true fun from beginning to end.”
