A performer with a middling voice and a fair amount of charisma, Simon Green offers his view of life at that tipping point of middle age. Pushing onto 57 seems to have made Mr. Green wax philosophical.

His “Simon Green: So, This Then Is Life,” in a US premiere at 59E59 Theaters through June 1, is a metaphysical cabaret, to piano accompaniment by Simon Green’s long time musical director, David Shrubsole. Mr. Shrubsole, co-creator with Simon Green for the program, has also provided the musical arrangements to songs by a wide range of composers from Noel Coward to Stephen Sondheim.
