In a show she calls “Back to Ab-Normal,” Ackerman looks back on her time in show business, a career that has among other things seen her following Patti LuPone in the title role of Evita. If patrons get lucky, Ackerman will play some of her barrelhouse piano, but either way, her barrelhouse personality should carry the evening to dizzying heights. Beyond the star, this show is stacked with seasoned vets, as Barry Kleinbort, cabaret’s premier director, is giving the cues, and Paul Greenwood is at the piano.
Saturdays, 7 p.m. Starts: March 3. Continues through March 30, 2012
