Emily Bergl IS an entertainer! From television to film to theatre to cabaret, Emily knows how entice an audience! On Thursday, September 1, 2011, I had the distinct pleasure to attend Emily's cabaret show "Kidding on the Square" at the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room in NYC.
Paying tribute to the 1920s and 1930s from a modern viewpoint, Emily dazzled the audience with a wide selection of songs that perfectly suited her voice from "Ten Cents A Dance" to Judy Garland's "Zing, Went The Strings Of My Heart" to Roy Orbison's "Crying" to Madonna's "Material Girl." The great thing about Emily is that she is a perfromer who really knows her strengths and Emily used those strenghts to bring this show to life! In addition to her delightful singing, Emily mixed in her talented dramatic and comedic acting to enhance the feelings of the songs. Her interaction with the audience was priceless and very welcomed by the sold-out crowd.
With talent, stage presence, and a personality to match, Emily Bergl shined very brightly as she enchanted the audience for the full hour plus show. I laughed, I sang, and most of all, I immensly enjoyed Emily Bergl's "Kidding on the Square" at the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room (59 West 44th Street, between 5th & 6th Avenue). "Kidding on the Square" plays until September 10! For tickets call 212-419-9331.
