Take a performer with a magnificent vocal range and a gift for storytelling, add a songbook filled by such composers as Joe Raposo, Frank Loesser, George/Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, as well as several contemporary composers and you get the combination for Mike Cartwright’s "I Hear Music", an entertaining evening that examines how music shapes and influences lives. Joining Mike will be pianist Paul Feyer and special guest Sheri Ziccardi.
Local audiences have enjoyed his performances at Goodspeed Musicals, River Rep, Summer Theatre of New Canaan, and Ivoryton Playhouse. Cartwright has also appeared in productions at Arden Theatre in Philadelphia and Delaware Theatre Company. He made his New York debut in 2003 at the famous cabaret landmark Don’t Tell Mama, and studied at the Cabaret Conference at Yale University.

Feyer was the Conductor and Pianist for the Producing Guild in Hartford for 12 years, and has worked at the Gateway Playhouse in Long Island, Monomoy Theatre in Massachusetts, Goodspeed Musicals, and the River Rep in Ivoryton.
