WHAT: Show, “Hel­luva Town: A New York Sound­track” WHEN: Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. WHERE: Bridge Street Theatre, 44 W. Bridge St., Catskill DE­TAILS: Eric Com­stock and Bar­bara Fasano will pro­vide a gen­uine “Man­hat­tan” ex­pe­ri­ence on the theatre’s main­stage with their show, “Hel­luva Town: A New York Sound­track.” The duo will also be per­form­ing Oct. 2 at Bird­land in Man­hat­tan. In their show, rather than trot­ting out the pre­dictable New York an­thems, the cou­ple will cel­e­brate their love/hate re­la­tion­ship with New York City by pre­sent­ing an eclec­tic mix of mu­si­cal num­bers from Broad­way, Hol­ly­wood and the pop/ jazz song­book. The com­posers whose works they’ll be per­form­ing run the gamut from Leonard Bern­stein to Richard Rodgers, Paul Si­mon to Joni Mitchell and Burt Bachrach. Tick­ets are $20, $15 for stu­dents.
