RECENT REVIEWS

Tom Andersen

Tom Andersen

The closing performance of Tom Andersen’s recent Don’t Tell Mama show (his first solo program in almost a decade) had a casual pre-Labor Day vibe. He wore cool summer attire, befitting a box social. And he’d tucked plenty of fresh, thoughtfully prepared musical treats in his picnic hamper. He opened the show with “Gosh, It’s […]

Sharon McNight: Red Hot Mama – The Sophie Tucker Farewell Tour

Those relative few of us who remember Sophie Tucker at all can recall only a stout, corseted old lady in the black-and-white days of the Ed Sullivan TV variety show, waving a white scarf and claiming to be “The Last of the Red Hot Mamas.” We knew there must be more to the story, of […]
