Excuse My Dust: Dorothy Parker Sings

Cabaret Director, Cindy C. Oxberry

A sparkling cabaret show inspired by the remarkable life and writings of Mrs. Dorothy Parker, whose name evokes a time, place and sophisticated society when people dressed for the theater, met for supper long after the moon had made its appearance, and considered being “intellectual” a positive attribute. The show features many of the celebrated wit’s quotes and quips and many of her poems, set to glorious, period-perfect melodies written by EMMY-Award winning composer/arranger Lanny Meyers. Rounding out the evening are songs from many other luminaries of the era including Lorenz Hart, Noel Coward and Cole Porter — making for a most marvelous party.

With Sandy’s Emmy-Award winning musical director – Lanny Meyers.
