Something to Sing About
June 17, 2012 - June 17, 2012
The Metropolitan Room
Director, Bruce Kimmel
Songstress Lanny Meyers returns to the New York cabaret stage to debut her newest show entitled Sandy Bainum: Something to Sing About. The performance is a celebration of positivity, featuring songs that are engaging, entertaining, and ultimately uplifting. The eclectic musical collection brilliantly weaves together the melodies of several decades and musical genres and features tunes by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Dorothy Fields, Stephen Sondheim, Irving Berlin, David Friedman, Randy Newman and John Sebastian. Joining Sandy is her award-winning musical director, Lanny Meyers.
The new show, directed by Bruce Kimmel, will treat audiences to such varied fare as “Cockeyed Optimist” from South Pacific, “Lion Tamer” from The Magic Show, “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl, “Pure Imagination” from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story, to name just a few. And what evening out in New York would be complete without an ode to the boroughs, this one by Irving Berlin, “A Beautiful Day in Brooklyn,” from one of his rare unproduced musicals.
Something to Sing About is a wonderful, whimsical evening of music, one that is guaranteed to send you home humming.
