“MAC” is back at the MAC for a very special Nite Spot Night event! The MAC is once again turned into a piano bar for one night only! With the baby grand piano in the center of the room, patrons will be seated at tables around the room (and even on stage) as acclaimed Broadway actor/pianist Michael “Mac” McAssey sings and plays your favorite show tunes and pop music. Sing along with Mac, or step up to the microphone and sing your best song—Mac can play them all! Be sure to bring your favorite drinks and food!
Michael is one of cabaret's busiest and most sought-after entertainers, whether as a front man center stage, or behind the piano in a piano bar. The successful Broadway and television actor made his cabaret debut in 1982 at New York City's famous Duplex in Greenwich Village. McAssey is a winner and three-time nominee of the Manhattan Association of Cabarets Award for Outstanding Male Vocalist. As an actor he made his Broadway debut in Late Night Comic. In New York City, he has worked on and Off-Broadway ( A Hard Time To Be Single, Sex Tips For Modern Girls, In Gay Company & more) and at Lincoln Center. He co-starred as Herbie in Gypsy (with Tony nominee Sally Mayes), Sondheim’s Putting It Together, Edna Turnblad in 2 productions of Hairspray, and as Max Bialystock in three different companies of Mel Brooks’ The Producers. Soap fans may remember Michael as blind pianist-singer George Baldwin on CBS-TV’s GUIDING LIGHT.
“Non-stop entertainment, punctuated as often by his dazzling vocal prowess as it is by his comic genius” - NEW YORK POST
“He manages to somehow be both cabaret’s most accomplished balladeer, and it’s wildest, most uninhibited musical clown!” - VARIETY
