Next up, I’ll be appearing at the Venice Theatre alongside dashing actor/tenor Matthew Ryder in “Songs to Sweep You off Your Feet”.
Matthew is relatively new to the area. I met him while we were both singing at a benefit for the Community AIDS Network. From the moment I heard his voice and saw his talents onstage, I knew I wanted to collaborate with him. Fortunately, he was totally enthusiastic about joining me for the Summer Cabaret Festival!
The two of us will be singing a collection of romantic melodies from musical theater and beyond that explore love – falling in, falling out, and everything in between. Songs will include selections from Gershwin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber and more. I’m excited to sing tunes from shows I’ve appeared in years past, like “If I Loved You” from Carousel and “Something Good” from Sound of Music. I’m also excited to be adding a few new pieces to the repertoire like, “One Second and a Million Miles” from Bridges of Madison County and “Tonight” from West Side Story.
The show will be in an intimate setting at the Pinkerton stage. Last year, my one-woman cabaret show of “Secrets and Sequins” sold out so don’t wait until the last minute to purchase tickets.
