Richard Halpern carries the audience back to genteel times with his stellar show of pop tunes from the era of Tin Pan Alley. Imparting the essence of a wild and witty generation, the charming Jazz Singer takes you on a journey beginning in the 1910s, moves right on through the 1920s and finishes up somewhere in the early 1930s. With influences such as Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Fanny Brice, and Sophie Tucker, Halpern’s show isn’t confined by nostalgia, rather it etches a new journey to the future.
Members of Halpern’s varied audience have included such luminaries as Margaret O’Brien, Joan Collins, Joanna Carson, Ted Mann, Rhonda Fleming and Milton Berle. Halpern is also a favorite on the private party circuit, having entertained at functions thrown by Aaron Spelling, Nolan Miller, and other industry notables.
Successful on both coasts, has entertained at such Southern California venues as the RMS Queen Mary, the Cinegrill, The Derby, the exclusive Jonathan Club, the Sweet and Hot Music Festival, and the famed Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles. New York City audiences have enjoyed Halpern at Lincoln Center and at such cabarets as Don’t Tell Mama and The Red Blazer, plus he has toured the condos in Florida with Ann Blyth and Bill Hayes.
