Intrepid Annette out on the town
"I was out on the town tonight and went to see Lorna Luft's show at the Empire Plush Room! If any 42nd Street Moon fans/blog readers out there are looking for something fun and entertaining in the next two weeks (she's here until Jan. 8th), I highly recommend this show.
Great blend of Broadway and Hollywood -- with songs from folks such as Jerry Herman (hey, there's even a song from MACK and MABEL!), Harold Arlen and Ira Gershwin, Frank Loesser, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Peter Allen and so much more... as well as some pretty funny banter about her mother (Judy Garland) and Carol Channing. And if that's not enough to get you there, the fabulous Daniel Fabricant* plays bass for Ms.Luft. Great music and showmanship from her.
*Some of you will remember that Daniel also played bass for Klea Blackhurst's "Autumn In New York" show back in October..."
Imagine living in the shadow of not only Judy Garland, but Liza Minelli! But Ms. Luft has been doing her own thing for years, and by now she has become one of cabaret's queens.
