"Shaina Taub belongs to a breed of performers who, apart from being artists, are gravitational forces around whom others cluster like filings to a magnet." - The New York Times
Songwriter/performer Shaina Taub sets up camp this year at Joe's Pub with her monthly concert residency. Each show will be a creative laboratory as she and her band debut new songs. Expect lots of selections from Old Hats and Visitors as well as special guests Ali Stroker, Brittain Ashford and Jo Lampert joining in along the way.
Taub is a winner of the Jonathan Larson Grant and the first female recipient of the ASCAP Foundation's Lucille and Jack Yellen Award. She writes tunes for Sesame Street, including Just Like Magic featuring Sara Bareilles. Six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald is currently performs Taub's song, The Tale of Bear & Otter on tour. Taub's songs have also been performed by Broadway stars Sutton Foster and Phillipa Soo. Taub's original musical adaptation Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was commissioned by the Public Theater as part of the groundbreaking Public Works initiative and received a critically acclaimed production at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park in which she played the role of Feste. Her original soul-folk opera, The Daughters, was featured in workshop productions at CAP21 Theater Company, and New York University's mainstage season. Taub is currently writing a new musical about Alice Paul and the American women's suffrage movement in the decade leading up to the passage of the 19th amendment.
As a performer, Taub has traveled the world as a vocalist, actor and musician. She starred in the west coast premiere and New York re-mounting of the Signature Theatre's hit production Old Hats, created by Bill Irwin and David Shiner and directed by Tina Landau, featuring Taub's original songs. She earned a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for her portrayal of Princess Mary in the Kazino production of Dave Malloy's Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 directed by Rachel Chavkin. She sang back-up for Karen O and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in O's psycho-opera, Stop the Virgens at St. Ann's Warehouse and the Sydney Opera House, and arranged/played the songs of Tom Waits in the American Repertory Theater's production of Shakespeare's The Tempest.
