In Your Face – New York captures the spirit, the energy, the music, noise and creativity of this capital of the world. The show comes to Merkin Concert Hall after sell-out performances at St. Ann’s Warehouse and Symphony Space. It’s a live performance extravaganza and also a video/audio podcast that features the best of New York’s actors, writers, musicians and more. Previous episodes have featured Isaac Mizrahi, Mo Rocca, novelist Nicole Krauss, Tony-winner Sarah Jones, Bob Balaban, New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast and WNYC’s Brian Lehrer. Music is led by jazz legend Jay Leonhart and the 1-Train Band.
