At the piano, conductor Harry Mayronne readily earns the old title of "Professor" setting the drive and rhythms of the evening with rich style, bringing out all the musical influences from blues and swing, gospel and jazz.

A lone figure emerges to take his seat at the piano. That is pianist extraordinaire Harry Mayronne, who, unfortunately, has his back turned to the audience for most of the performance.


As music director, though, Mayronne is the spark to all that takes place on stage. He and the five members of his band – bassist David Pulphus, drummer John Jones, trumpeter Jamil Sharif, trombonist Michael Watson and reeds player Ray Moore – combine to bring the sweet sounds of Waller’s happy tunes into focus.

-ALAN SMASON, Theatre Critic, WYES-TV (Steppin’ Out)

His recent production Jewish Roots of Broadway at the World War II Museum (for Jewish Children’s Regional Services) won raves...produced and directed from the piano by Harry Mayronne...the ovations were thunderous.

--NELL NOLAN, THE NEW ORLEANS ADVOCATE


Harry was co-producer of the 2006 off-Broadway

production of his show Waiting Around--the Restaurant Musical (originally titled The Black & White Blues).

This tightly structured revue features a bright, bouncy score by Harry Mayronne, who also plays the piano throughout the show with his usual brilliance. His rich tones and steady pace drive the program.

Berliner Ensemble, 2013

French writer Marcel Proust, created by Harry Mayronne.


In 2013 Harry appeared, with his self-made Bertolt Brecht marionette,  with Nina Hagen in her Brecht Concert at the Berliner Ensemble. In his own multi-lingual solo show he tells of his travels to Berlin and Paris. Among his marionette characters are Nina Hagen, Leonard Cohen,  and iconic French writer Boris Vian. Other recent shows include the New Orleans International Puppet Festival, Bustout Burlesque at House of Blues, CLUE, a Burlesque Mystery, and Hot Stuff! at French Quarter Festival.


“The multitalented Mayronne is a musician, composer and puppeteer, and he makes his puppets. ...lighthearted, well-paced and thoroughly enjoyable.”
