In 2011, folk-pop legend Suzanne Vega wrote and starred in an Off-Broadway play, Carson McCullers Talks About Love, and she collaborated on the play’s music with singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik. Sheik is best-known for his mid-’90s triple-A hit “Barely Breathing,” but he also draws water on Broadway as a composer. The two, who apparently hit it off, appear side by side at JCCC. Sheik is promoting his most recent release, Covers 80s: Duncan Sheik, a folkie-oriented take on ’80s classics by such bands as the Smiths, the Cure and the Thompson Twins — it isn't quite as cheesy as it sounds.
