Husband-and-wife singing duo John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey are set for a month-long engagement at New York’s Café Carlyle, beginning on October 30 and concluding on November 24.
Titled This Must Be The Place, the singers’ new show dives into the meaning of the word ‘home’ with a set list that includes Tom Petty’s “Free Falling,” Stephen Sondheim’s “Running Away (No More)”, Joni Mitchell’s “Free Man in Paris” and James Taylor’s “It’s Enough To Be On Your Way.”
Molaskey will sing with Pizzarelli, who will play guitar and lead a quartet that includes his brother Martin Pizzarelli on bass, Larry Fuller on piano and Tony Tedesco on drums.
Molaskey made her Broadway debut in 1979 in the singing ensemble of Oklahoma! before going on to star in Parade, Sunday in the Park with George, Cats, The Who’s Tommy, Chess and Crazy For You, among others. Pizzarelli is an acclaimed jazz guitarist who performed on Broadway in 1997’s Dream (alongside Molaskey) and has recorded over twenty solo albums, as well as joint albums with his father, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Molaskey.
