In addition to being a fine actor and one of the funniest people on the planet, Bill Murray is a lover of poetry and superior prose. His passion for both, and his friendship with acclaimed cellist Jan Vogler, led to this singular evening of music and words.
Performing with a chamber trio, the irresistible Murray will read various texts – poems by Whitman, and passages from Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast and Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany – interspersed with instrumental pieces by Bach, Ravel and Piazzolla and classic songs by the Gershwins, Bernstein and Stephen Foster. New Worlds is a fascinating encounter between great music and great literature, starring masters of their art.
Bill Murray appears as part of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Vocal Arts Series
