Adam's Call: Liz Callaway: The Beat Goes On at Feinstein's/54 Below: Hits a Home Run with Every Song

Adam's Call: This past July I attended Liz Callaway's concert, "The Beat Goes On" at Feinstein's/54 Below. Over a month later, I'm still thinking about this magical evening! Liz's show was a master class in music, singing, & cabaret! Liz took us on a musical journey of the 1960s & I was mesmerized from start to finish! If Liz were a baseball player, she hit a home run with every song! Liz will be returning to Feinstein's/54 Below with "The Beat Goes On" Sun, 9/10 7pm!
Adam's Call: Marta Sanders' "Follow Me" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre is the epitome of cabaret! The evening flew by just like a plane taking off for it's next destination. With just 3 shows left, February 11, 16, & 25 at 7pm, I highly encourage you to get tickets for Marta Sanders' "Follow Me" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre because Marta is one performer you'll want to follow for years to come!
Adam's Call: What an incredible night seeing Tracie Thoms make her Feinstein's/54 Below debut! She was on fire! From her opening number to her numerous standing ovations & super special surprise guest, the evening was everything I wanted & more! There's one more chance to catch Tracie's show, this Saturday, January 14 at 7pm at Feinstein's/54 Below!
Adam's Call:Amy Marcs' "Nice T!ts" at The PIT Loft in NYC has it all...heart, laughter, and Barbie dolls! Amy painted the grim picture of breast cancer perfectly, while infusing a rainbow of colors from her genius performance skills. "Nice T!ts" never diminishes the seriousness of breast cancer, it just finds a way to make it a little easier to digest. "Nice T!ts" has just 3 performances left: Sunday, 10/16 at 4pm, Monday, 10/24 at 8pm, & Thursday, 10/27!
Adam's Call: Latrice Royale: "Here's To Life": Celebration of Love, Life, and Second Chances: Latrice Royale's one woman show "Here's To Life," which is currently enjoying a return engagement at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC is definitely one of the best "one person" shows I have ever seen! I hope everyone reading this piece will rewrite their destiny and go see Latrice Royale's "Here's To Life" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC!
Adam's Call: Last month I had the pleasure of going to see Melissa Errico's concert "Sing The Silence" at Joe's Pub which focused Melissa's journey of getting to sing again after she suddenly lost her voice during the run of Classic Stage Company's production of "Passion." Melissa had to withdraw from that production and be on complete vocal rest for 100 days, meaning no singing and no talking whatsoever! Well, the days of Melissa Errico being silent are very over! She is back and better than ever!
Adam's Call: "Empanada Loca" A recipe for success: Aaron Mark's "Empanada Loca," written for and starring two-time Tony Award nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega, is another must see show! From the moment the lights went out & the rumbles of the subway train were heard, I was taken into "Dolores'" world & was kept there the whole time which is a testament to the powerful performance Daphne is giving in this show as well as to Aaron's writing! "Empanada Loca," presented by Labyrinth Theater Company, runs thru Nov. 8 at The Bank Street Theater in NYC!
Adam's Call: Shakina Nayfack: POST-OP: Spirits Don't Break: Shakina is opening herself up and exposing herself in a way more people should. When you live an authentic life, there is a constant glow around you, and that glow is illuminating from Shakina!
Adam's Call: Natalie Douglas' "Hello Dolly...The Music of Dolly Parton" at Birdland: Stairway to Heaven! If you haven't purchased tickets yet for Natalie Douglas' show "Hello Dolly...The Music of Dolly Parton" which is returning to Jim Caruso's Broadway at Birdland concert series on Monday, April 20, May 18, July 6, and August 10 at 7pm, then I'm not sure what you are waiting for!
Adam's Call: Sutton Foster: New York Pops: One Night Only: A Night I Will Remember Forever. Sutton was on fire! Her voice filled Carnegie Hall well beyond the rafters! From the moment Sutton took the stage, she captivated the audience all the way through until the very end and that still was too short of a time to be at this concert.
Adam's Call: "Journey of a Bombshell: The Ina Ray Hutton Story": Interesting story. Very well acted. Excellently sung. The thing I liked most about Journey of a Bombshell was learning about Ina's career and the portrayal of her drive, determination, and strength of working her way up in a man's world.
Adam's Call: Catherine LeFrere: "Confessions of a Young Character Actress": A Legend In The Making. From the moment the show started, Catherine engulfed the audience because she made us feel at ease with her talented voice and and self depreciating humor. She made us laugh right from the get go and that alone lets enables the audience to sit back and relax.
