Marilyn Maye returns to the 1200 Club for the holidays! Deemed the “Supreme Goddess of Music” by Cabaret World, she is an unmatched talent who captivates audiences with her theatrical flair.  She will present "The Merriest" on December 13th at 7:30pm at the 1200 Club. Maye is a cultural and musical treasure. She appeared 76 times on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” the record for a singer. Perhaps the simplest Maye accolade came after one of her show-stopping appearances on the show, turning to his audience of millions, Johnny Carson said, “And that, young singers, is the way it’s done.” Cabaret Scenes magazine recently noted, “She’s reached the pinnacle of icon status. ...Maye casts a unique spell on the young.” And Opera News raved “No entertainer gives you more in terms of great music, great theater, and great comedy.”
