Last night I took my friend, Casey McClellan, who has long worked with the NY Pops and Skitch Henderson, to Eric's show at Feinstein's. We were both blown away at how terrific and generous and beautifully constructed it is... and thinking back on it, I wish with all my heart that you could see it - cabaret at its pinnacle.
On a very basic level, Casey said that he left feeling much better than when he arrived. "He
took me away with him - and I found that I always cared - I always wanted to know what would happen next. He showed us how and why movies have always mattered to him, but he didn't do it
presentationally, but internally." For myself, I have never seen Eric be so honest,so brave,
so joyful in his frolic (Old Movies), so unashamedly romantic without imposing but just sharing those instincts (Somewhere in Time, Eternally, One More Hour), so compassionate (Blood on the Moon, Errol Flynn and I'm Easy), and yes, so brilliant a showman who can even make me listen anew to the lyrics of New York, New York. (They are, after all, by Fred Ebb, who wrote the gorgeous ballad that is Eric's last song, At The Rialto.) One more thing about my own
reaction - twice he moved me to tears, and having learned as much as I have about performance
in cabaret, that's almost impossible to do! And it wasn't just the reaction of a hormonally
challenged middle-aged woman(!) - Casey cried too.
What we insiders call the pacing of a show was simply brilliant. For example, having moved
us to open our hearts a bit wider than usual with the Blood on the Moon segment, he and his Musical Director, Jeff Kubeta (sp?) do a duet from Disney, a song about a Wishing Well, vocally delightful and slightly silly, which gently gives us time to recover, while still enjoying....
Doing a show about the movies, he could hardly leave out Moon River - and in retrospect, putting
it second in the show was the perfect placement. He'd already let us know with the opening song that not only were we in good hands, but that he would be fun to be with for a whole evening...
now he could show us the simple, quiet yearning of Moon River and the beginnings of the longing that took him to the movies.
His singing was wonderful. He really gave us the lyrics, it's as simple as that. It was some of the most generous singing I've been lucky enough to hear. Only two times that I can think of, both of which felt right, did he go to a bigger, more overtly emotional place vocally and in both cases, he waited until the latter half of the song when it was truly warranted (Three Coins in a Fountain, New York New York).
It was a treat to sit right in front of him, even if it did make me a target for some teasing...
When he introduced a few of us in the audience, myself and K.T.Sullivan in this instance, he
said, "The tall ones are always down in front, the smart ones off on the side..." I still loved
For whatever reason, (too many openings this week..?), it doesn't look like the Times will get
there - so I wanted you to know what truly brilliant show he's crafted and what a lovely job he does in performing it. If I could afford it, I'd go back again!!

What an amazing evening! This was a treat, Rebecca Kilgore is amazing, and Harry Allen and his quartet were the perfect combination. Everyone at Feinstein's was so incredibly welcoming and gracious-- it is such a stunning place, and it really is...continued

This is a wonderful venue for watching cabaret performances. It is just INCREDIBLY expensive for those of us not used to NYC prices ($22 for a cocktail that wasn't very good). But it was worth it for a one-evening splurge.

January 15, 2012: *_An Evening with Tamela D’Amico*_
Take a recipe perfected by Sinatra, seasoned with equal parts Billie Holiday and Streisand, add a teaspoon of Ella, a dash of Peggy Lee and the result is pure heaven. With her cover girl looks, Italian-American roots and easy style, it’s no surprise that Tamela D’Amico’s been dubbed “Sinatra in heels” as she celebrates her album Got a Little Story. And like her predecessor, her talents stretch into the world of film and television, both as an actress and an award-winning writer/director — but that’s another story! Tamela transports audiences back in time to a place where bands were big, dames sang sweet and the jazz was sublime.
