Doreen Taylor's STRIPPED Returns to NYC


International Recording Artist and Songwriter Goes Unplugged In Heart of NY Theater District Thursday October 2nd at Don’t Tell Mama

“An excellent performing artist to keep your eyes on” – Huffington Post

Back by popular demand to the Big Apple after a wildly successful sold out New York City stop of her “Magic” tour, the sultry Los Angeles award winning songstress is returning to trade in the splash and dazzle of her sold-out arena concerts for something intimately special.

DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again…), an elegantly revealing evening of unplugged songs and stories from her breakout album, Magic, brings the award-winning recording artist back to the heart of New York’s theater district Thursday, Oct. 2nd at Don’t Tell Mama, 343 W 46th Street (betw. 8th & 9th Aves.). Show time is 8 p.m. Seating begins 7:30 p.m. Tickets available NOW at or reservations at by calling 212.757.0788 daily after 4 p.m.

Magic, the album, showcases Doreen’s talents as not only a vocalist, but as a songwriter and musician. She prides herself on the raw, emotional vibe of her lyrics and abilities to engage an audience, and DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again…) affords her the ultimate opportunity at a world-famous entertainment destination. Weaving acoustic renditions of songs from Magic with narration and story-telling about the making of the album and the woman who crafted it, the show is a rare look into the journey of a fiercely independent artist whose loyal fan base has pushed her social media following to more than 28,000 on Facebook and over 30,000 on Twitter. Several songs from her Magic album were selected by BOSE to be used for all their on-air demonstrations of their Bose Wave Sound System on the world’s #1 home shopping network, QVC and have been prominently featured since 2013.

Backed by acoustic musicians in a subdued setting, DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again…) offers Doreen’s unique fusion of soothing vocals, captivating melodies and engaging, upbeat showmanship in an understated homage to her Broadway roots.

It’s not often that a mainstream, popular singer-songwriter does a cabaret-style show off Broadway. DOREEN TAYLOR: STRIPPED (again…) is a true testament to Doreen’s ability as an artist to continually transcend musical boundaries. She does just that on Magic, which yielded the YouTube hit “Last Call (for Alcohol)” with country comfort and, as the Buffalo News points out, “is notable for the diversity of its content. Taylor can do straight-up contemporary music, but she is known to tackle standards like ‘Summertime’ and ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ with equal conviction.” The Huffington Post calls her “an excellent performing artist to keep your eyes on."
