Saw Jerry Stuart’s The Poets Of Tin Pan Alley

Just a quick note that KJ and I went to Tony Starlight’s last night and saw Jerry Stuart’s new show, The Poets of Tin Pan Alley, and have to say we enjoyed it very much.  Loved the picture of a Tin Pan Alley publishing company circa 1920s on the big screen as a backdrop to the show, and enjoyed his song selection and patter, especially his rendition of a ballad from Flower Drum Song and a lively version of Yip Harburg’s “Lydia, The Tatooed Lady.”  Jerry was also joined by guest appearances from Mary Ann Nicholas (who looks fabulous in red sequins!) and the dapper Tony Starlight himself on ukelele.  The house was full and everyone seemed to be having a great time.  What is really also fun is the after-show catching up with singer/musician friends, and making new friends to cabaret.  A very enjoyable evening!

And a heads up–there are two more piano bars coming up at Tony Starlight’s before the year is over–one on Tuesday, November 22nd, and possibly one in December.  They run from 6-10pm, no cover charge, $10 food/drink minimum.
