PRLog - Oct. 13, 2012 - BIG ARTS on Sanibel presents a special Thanksgiving weekend performance by Beckie Menzie and Tom Michael, celebrating famous singing families in their “All in the Musical Family” show. Concert begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, November 24.

BIG ARTS Pop and Jazz season’s line-up also includes Singer Songwriter Tom Rush (Jan. 12); Kathy Kosins in “A Toast to the Ladies of Cool” (Jan. 26); The Glenn Miller Orchestra (Feb. 2); Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues (Feb. 16); Fred Hersch Jazz Trio (March 8); “Cinema Toast: Celebrating The Music of the Movies” (March 15); and Wendy Webb at the Herb Strauss Theater (April 1).

All shows begin at 8 p.m. at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel, with the exception of Wendy Webb, who will perform at the Herb Strauss Theater. BIG ARTS Herb Strauss Theater is located at 2200 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.
Celebrated Chicago concert artists Beckie Menzie and Tom Michael perform the most popular and timeless music of famous singing families, including The Carpenters, The Andrew Sisters, The Jacksons, The Judds, Steve & Eydie, The Bee Gees, John and Bonnie Raitt, and many more in their “All in the Musical Family” show.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Menzie & Michael plan to make it a full family affair as they poke fun at society’s obsession with celebrity families by inviting some of these characters into the fold, as well.

Menzie and Michael have appeared at The Auditorium Theatre, Park West, The Pritzker Stage at Millenium Park, The Metropolis, The Empire Room and Maxim’s. They have also been featured at numerous Chicago Humanities Festival ASCAP concerts. Their imaginative musical twists on jazz favorites, standards, contemporary pop, Broadway show tunes and film gems have won them audience and critical acclaim around the globe. The pair has also recently appeared at New York’s Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and Town Hall, and has been included in New York’s Cabaret Scenes Magazine’s “Top Ten Cabaret Acts” for five consecutive years. The duo also won After Dark’s 2007 Cabaret Artists of the Year Award and have released a successful CD together titled Better Two-gether.

The Chicago Tribune says Menzie and Michael are “one of the most compelling duos in cabaret,” and Rick Kogan of WGN radio says they are “among the best performers in Chicago.”

General seating: $37, Loge: $42, Student: $15. BIG ARTS is now offering online ticket sales for single event tickets as well as series and subscription tickets, at http://www.bigarts.org/pop-jazz.php
