Cabaret @ The Museum Of The City Of NY 10/31/09

My pal Susan Madden is the vice president of development @ TMOCONY and she introduced the “New York at 400 The Broadway View”. Michael Montel narrated while Nancy Anderson, Joy Lynn Matthews,Howard McGillin and Jim Stanek sang and Rick Hip-Flores played piano though an historical trip down Broadway.Most of the songs were unfamiliar to me, isn’t that what cabaret is about?, and there were some gems; “The Man in The Street”, “It Was Never You”,”April Snow” and of course “The Lullaby Of Broadway”. Snappy patter between the songs linked each one to a time period and who wrote what and all stuff you never knew but are glad to know now. The singing, and playing, was outstanding; with solos and duets and ensembles. There was a lot of acting too, many times I felt I was at the show, whew! These folks were so talented and such great performers that I’m glad there is this kind of format to see them and I hope to see more, sign me up!
