Show Jumping

I was all over town last night, first at the Metropolitan Room for Jamie De Roy's last show of the year featuring Tony winner Tonya Pinkins, comedian Judy Gold and Broadway performer Loni Ackerman wonderfully recreating her "Crossword Puzzle"  showstopper from STARTING HERE, STARTING NOW.

My dates were Jim Brochu and Steve Schalchlin. They kindly took me on to Sardi's for a quick bite before we continued on to 54 Below and the NYC premiere of Charles Busch's brilliant new cabaret act with musical direction by Tom Judson. Such a rich feast of a show with hilarious character monologues, readings from Arlene Dahl's advice to women and duelling autobiographies by Bette & Joan, a whole B-movie tribute to Gladys George, and deeply felt renditions of "My Ship", "I Wonder What Became of Me" and "Don't Like Goodbyes". Mr. Busch truly deserves his "legend" status.
With the addition of Harvey Evans to our party, the gang is indeed all here!
