I’ll preface this post with a confession…I’ve never been a fan of Barbara Streisand, nor Judy Garland…ever. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way let me say a few things about Key Change Cabaret‘s tribute performance last week dedicated to the two icon’s catalogue of tunes. Natasha Drena and JJ Collins, with accompaniment from Kim Steiner (piano) and Marc Chesanow (upright bass) ABSOLUTELY KILLED IT with an incredible performance! Hands down it was one of the best shows that I’ve seen & heard from the Cabaret yet.
It’s easy for me to get stuck in the mindset of only ‘liking what I like’, but this night made me remember what I love about live music…passion, professionalism, competent performers, a little bit of familiarity (turns out that I already knew most of the material after-all), and great banter with the audience in between songs & sets. There are still three more shows left in this year’s run, and I highly recommend checking it out. Click on the highlighted text above for more details & ticket information.
Here are a few photos, with more after the jump….
