Jodi's Second Cabaret!

I'm re-announcing Jodi's Second Cabaret at Don't Tell Mama's in NYC on Saturday August 22nd at 8 PM. Both Shoshanna Richman and I will be joining Jodi for three Andrew's Sisters songs, which is terribly exciting - but we'll all be there to support Jodi if you are able to get up to NYC and join us.

Note: You might remember Jodi Beck Week last November? Video #1. Video #2. Video #3. Video #4.
So... who's coming?!

'Crazy for You' at Cockpit in the Court

Last night I attended a show at CCBC's Cockpit in the Court summer theatre. The show was 'Crazy for You' - a Gershwin musical featuring lots of catchy music and a load of tap dancing and creative choreography. My friend and coworker, Lacy, is one of the dancers and the dance captain, and she did a terrific job! I highly recommend this show - but catch it soon - there's only one weekend left!

Note: Points if you attend next weekend. Extra points is you cheer like crazy when Lacy pops out of the car on stage in showgirl attire. Yep... it's just that fun. :)

Artscape 2009, baby. My third year, and man, has it grown. A bunch of us met up in the afternoon yesterday, but it was insanely difficult to stay together with 100k people in attendance, so Karen and I ended up walking around together and shopping. I found two cool items this year: a new purse made by a group who uses some of the profits to support Asperger's research, and a new necklace made out of recycled materials.

Here is my new purse. Check out As If Bags for more info. They choose great fabrics and the products are all reasonably priced. This one here was only $35!

This terrific necklace was made by Mann Made Designs and the color is reversible with red on the back. It cost only $29! What a deal!

Nicole and I - always a cute pic.

Me, Nicole, Gina and Jenny (in reverse order).

So I May Not Have Mentioned It...

But I am SO EXCITED. I have been asked by my dear friend, Jodi Beck, to sing backup for her at her cabaret in August in NYC! I am so THRILLED. I'll be singing soprano for "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree," Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon." It's all Andrews Sisters stuff.

It's a good thing I started voice lessons, but I'd additionally thankful to Doug Silver for sending rehearsal materials! Yay! I can't stop singing!

Are you excited? Are you coming to the show? :)
