Octogenarian Showstopper Rules NYC!


CLICK HERE for my column about how cabaret is the new Broadway, and the star of that genre is an 82-year-old wowapalooza named Marily Maye.

A standards singer in the 1960s, Maye has entered a lovely career renaissance as a jazz belter who electrifies audiences who pay to sit and watch her over Pink Squirrels.

I also checked out Sally Kellerman‘s much slinkier act in between sprinkling in reports of my downtown club jaunts, some surprising relationship gossip, and my thoughts about the titillating terror known as Spider-Man.

Thanks to our own Jonster for the “snuff theater” remark! Yes, I do pay attention to your emissions, kids.
