Last night's surprise birthday outing was to see PIPPIN (Sheldy's third time) and it was a resounding success. New cast members Kyle Dean Massey as Pippin and Annie Potts ("Designing Women") as Berthe are wonderful additions to the production. Tonight I took the lad to NYC cabaret institution Don't Tell Mama to see a rare appearance by our friend, the "singer's singer" Joyce Breach in her first engagement at that venue, accompanied by another cabaret stalwart Ronnie Whyte at the piano.
TT's other surprise was that I had also invited our darling Aussie chum Susan Lyons to join us, along with Sondra Lee who has only just met him but of course has already fallen under his spell.
