The venue (the Temple) was fabulous. Most important tip: 5 star restaurant Chapeau is only two blocks away.

Description

Accompanied by Terry Dobson

Danny Kaye brought laughter into millions of American homes along with Lucille Ball in The Danny Kaye Show, considered one of the best television shows of its time, and the CBS special An Hour With Danny Kaye. He lit up the silver screen in movies such as Hans Christian Andersen, The Court Jester, White Christmas, The Madwoman of Chaillot, and many others. His costars included Katherine Hepburn, Louis Armstrong and Gene Kelly. The red-headed performer was known for his comedy, generosity, lunacy, and immense talent.

Of his tribute to Danny Kaye, Don Alan Croll says, “To try to duplicate the performance style of Danny Kaye would be an insult to his memory. Rather, I’d like to try to bring to mind the memory each of you have of this unique performer. Danny Kaye recorded a lot of memorable songs during his career — forgive me if I don’t sing your favorite. For most of Kaye’s success, his wife, Sylvia Fine, shares the credit. Few collaborators worked so well together. In all his work, new or old, he never forgot how he got where he got. He used to say, ‘Sylvia has a fine head on my shoulders.’”
