A smoky Greenwich Village nightclub in 1958 — a decade before the Stonewall riots — is the setting of Sam Bendrix at the Bon Soir,” according to production notes. “With music drawn from well-known songs of the era, [the play is a] sharp and poignant look at a now-vanished world, a young singer takes the stage of a Greenwich Village nightclub for his last performance before leaving New York City for good.
