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.

I wish Pat Suzuki would come out of retirement. Now there was a singer! One Broadway show (the original "Flower Drum Song"), four Broadway-style albums (finally available on iTunes, albeit poorly remastered), and then.... nothing.

Someone needs to record Marilyn, like NOW!
