Maria Corsaro presents reimagined arrangements of jazz standards along with beloved, but rarely performed jazz tunes written by some of the most influential composers and lyricists of this great American art form. Originally performed at Chelsea Table + Stage on March 14, 2023, Why Not? features songs of composers Bill Evans, Michel Camilo, Michel Legrand, and Miles Davis.

Directed by David Friedman, Corsaro and her top-shelf musicians, musical director/arranger Gregory Toroian on piano, Skip Ward on bass, and David Silliman on drums, deliver an evening of sophisticated fun.

Chelsea Table + Stage Hilton Fashion District Hotel 152 W 26th St, NYC, 10001 Tickets: $25-$45 / 2 item minimum

Corsaro last performed at Chelsea Table + Stage on November 9, 2023, in her new show I Could Get Used to This!, also directed by Friedman with musical direction by Toroian. In addition to Chelsea Table + Stage, Don’t Tell Mama, Laurie Beechman Theatre, and Pangea in NYC, Corsaro has performed at Jazz On Main in Mount Kisco, NY, and The Magnolia Room in Norwalk, CT.

”Besides being a fine jazz artist, Corsaro is a woman with a very big heart that she loves to share with her audience.” ~ Ricky Pope, BroadwayWorld

“Throughout, her work was marked by a fiercely intelligent approach to lyrics coupled with an impressive clarity…She is a performer who has to perform first-rate material because anything less would be exposed with her honesty.” ~ Bart Greenberg, Cabaret Scenes
