The Schoolhouse Songwriter Series is an intimate, candlelit, cafe-style evening in which Sharon invites three talented local, regional and nationally-touring singer-songwriters to join her in a Nashville-style round-robin format.
$10 at the door ($5 for kids under 12). Refreshments included, BYOB! Come early for the best cafe-style seats -- doors open at 7:30. Got questions? Email sharon@sharongoldmanmusic.
Here's who's joining Sharon this time around:
RUPERT WATES -- acoustic, melodic art-folk with serious chops...Rupert, a UK native who tours constantly, plays over 170 years a year!
HEATHER PIERSON -- this New Hampshire-based songbird is a pianist, singer, songwriter, performer, bandleader, composer and adventurer. Don't miss her heartfelt, honest, soulful tunes!
MITCH KATZ -- This Connecticut-based performer offers a mix of ballads and blues, and can really rock the ukelele.
Your hostess, SHARON GOLDMAN , is a Metuchen, NJ-based singer-songwriter whose "intense, insightful, vivid" storytelling is a "clinic in how to paint an indelible picture with the simplest images and symbols" (Alan Young, NY Music Daily) Over several well-received albums, she has combined heartfelt portraits and memorable lyrics with unforgettable melodies and pure, precise, expressive vocals -- taking a folk/pop sensibility to new artistic heights.
After successful runs in Florida, Arizona, California, Missouri, and Philadelphia, Alan Jacobson's WaistWatchers The Musical! pulls into New Jersey on October 12th with its outstanding cast of four seasoned comedic performers who can't "weight" to make audiences laugh in their seats.
In the same energetic and fun spirit as the Menopause The Musical®, WaistWatchers The Musical! takes a hilarious and lighthearted look at four women dealing with food, friendship, love, life and sex! The show will run through November 20th, at the Forum Theatre at 314 Main Street, Metuchen, NJ 08840.
Set in Cook's Women's Gym, WaistWatchers The Musical! features four women "of a certain age" dealing with assorted body image issues through active staging and two dozen songs with parody lyrics. With constant workouts, choreography, and infectious songs, WaistWatchers The Musical! tackles many of today's issues like dieting, exercise, plastic surgery, sex over the age of forty, and the relentless search for a positive self-image - with both humor and sensitivity.

Audiences will be roaring with laughter as the four women "Zumba-ize" popular songs, turning them into tunes like "Botox Queen", "I Hope I Lose It", "The World's Greatest Ice Cream"," I Went To The Buffet Line", and "Viagra."
