It’s About Time
December 6 – 10, 2017
Central Square Theater Studio
with Ron Roy, Piano/Musical Director
A musical journey through the arc of life. Lauded by The Boston Globe as a “superb cabaret/jazz singer and her ace piano accompanist,” Shepley Metcalf and Ron Roy offer up songs about life’s chapters, from the earliest years to the last. Teen angst, romance, friendship, work life, parenthood, and mortality are touched upon in this poignant, witty collection of tunes by such greats as Jacques Brel, Carole King, Johnny Mercer, Laura Nyro, and Stephen Sondheim.
Since 2008 the duo have released three albums and performed around New England (Scullers Jazz Club, Wellfleet Preservation Hall, Lily Pad), New York City (Metropolitan Room) and Chicago (Davenport’s Piano Bar & Cabaret). Metcalf sang in the cabaret duo Cabaret Enchante in the 1990s, and Roy, who has extensive credits in cabaret and musical theatre, is a faculty member at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
