For British satirist Melinda Hughes, the trip over to NYC from England was well worth it because her new cabaret show Cheers Darling is fantastic! What more can I say about Melinda's show? Just go see it, she's on the "right track baby!" Melinda has one more performance, tomorrow, Friday, 1/20 at 9:30pm at The Metropolitan Room in NYC!
I'm so excited to have this new interview with Klea Blackhurst. Not only does she have one of the best voices around, but she is a terrific interview subject. This time around, Klea & I discuss the 92Y's Lyrics & Lyricists series which kicks off with Get Happy: Harold Arlen's Early Years, featuring such classics as "Over the Rainbow," "Stormy Weather" and "I’ve Got the World on a String." Get Happy: Harold Arlen's Early Years will play 92Y Saturday, 1/21 - Monday, 1/23!
Ever since I heard "Borderline" by Madonna, I was hooked on her and her music. With-in "4 Minutes" of finding out about Michael Griffiths' show In Vogue: Songs By Madonna, I stepped into the "Spotlight" and gave him a ring. Luckily, I did not get "Hung Up" on. From one "Rebel Heart" to another, this is one Madonna "Celebration" you don't want to miss! In Vogue: Songs By Madonna will play Martinis Above Fourth in San Diego 1/26, Catalina Bar & Grill in Los Angeles 1/29, and Feinstein's/54 Below in New York 2/7!
I have been a fan of Martha Wash for a long, long time. From "It's Raining Men" to "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" to "Strike It Up." It's an honor to interview Martha again as she gets ready to show us her acting chops in I Want to Eat Brains (or the Day I Killed All My Friends), as part of the Fresh Grind Festival, a festival of public staged readings. A musical parody about a zombie apocalypse, I Want to Eat Brains (or the Day I Killed My Friends) will play at Theaterlab in NYC on Friday, 1/20 at 8pm!
I love the music of Kurt Weill, so needless to say I was excited to learn a new cabaret-play Love For Sale was coming to New York City celebrating this brilliant composer. I rang up this order and British actress Kelly Burke, answered my call to talk more about this show. Love For Sale will play the SoHo Playhouse in NYC from 1/12-2/19!
