Queen Esther performs at The Players for New Year’s Eve! 16 Gramercy Park South 212 475 6116  Personnel: Jeremy Bacon, pianist and music director Hilliard Greene, bassist   Nestled in the exclusive confines of one of the most elegant and stately mansions in Gotham, Queen Esther and her coterie of musicians glide into the new year with intimate configurations of all American classics.   The Players is a private social club founded in 1888 when Edwin Booth, the greatest American actor of his time, purchased a Gothic Revival-style mansion facing Gramercy Park and commissioned architect Stanford White to transform it into a certain club “for the promotion of social intercourse between the representative members of the dramatic profession and the kindred professions of literature, painting, sculpture and music, and the patrons of the arts.”   More than 125 years later, the tradition continues.
