Isaac Mizrahi is taking to the stage with an all-new show!

Accompanied by his band of six jazz musicians—led by Ben Waltzer—Mizrahi will perform a range of music, including favorites by Billie Holiday, Barbra Streisand, Cole Porter, and Madonna. Throughout the show, he'll share his hilarious musings on everything of the moment from politics to dieting to his latest Instagram obsessions.

The New York Times noted, “he is determined to challenge the cultural status quo and help blaze a path into a more liberated future where few subjects are off-limits."


Douglas Keeve’s award-winning 1995 film Unzipped will be screened at Bay Street Theater on Sunday, October 10, at 4 p.m. followed by a live Q&A with Isaac Mizrahi and Bay Street’s Executive Director, Tracy Mitchell. The celebrated documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at Mizrahi’s creative process as he builds his Fall 1994 collection, including personal discussions with friends and family. Throughout the film, Mizrahi surrounds himself with seminal figures including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Kate Moss, as well as influential arbiters of the fashion industry, such as Polly Mellen, Candy Pratts, and Andre Leon Talley. The runtime is 73 minutes.

He has an annual residency at Café Carlyle in New York City and has performed at various venues across the country such as Joe’s Pub, The Regency Ballroom and City Winery locations nationwide. The New York Times noted, "he qualifies as a founding father of a genre that fuses performance art, music and stand-up comedy." He is the subject and co-creator of Unzipped, a documentary following the making of his Fall 1994 collection, which received an award at the Sundance Film Festival. He hosted his own television talk show The Isaac Mizrahi Show for seven years, has written three books, and has made countless appearances in movies and on television.
