Mr. Mizrahi will be accompanied on stage by the dazzling Ben Waltzer Jazz Quartet, a first-rate combo that has backed up the beloved fashion designer in recent years as he has turned to performing cabaret shows in NYC and across the country. In fact, The New York Times has called Mr. Mizrahi a "founding father of Alt Cabaret."
I&ME is a cabaret revue including stories, songs and even a very comical, audience participation re-gift segment. The show is a fun, casual and meaningful look at life through Isaac's eyes, from growing up gay in a small Jewish community in Brooklyn to scaling the heights of fashion as one of the world's most popular and beloved designers.
I&ME is produced by Westbeth Entertainment, IME and Generate.
