Usually I Can See The Stage At 54 Clearly – Not This Time
Stephen Sorokoff, My View
Amanda McBroom & husband George Ball were on the stage at 54 Below. Michele Brourman was on piano. George’s voice, Amanda’s words and music, the notes Michele finds on the piano, all cannot be listened to without your eyes getting misty. Amanda is probably one of the greatest night club performers of all time and this show titled “Some Enchanted Evening” was another example of Cabaret at it’s best.
Her lyrics are profound and express human emotions in glorious poetry. Her humor is so smart and she sings and acts it all brilliantly. This husband and wife who met and fell in love in 1969 (hello Eda*) created an evening of romance not seen often below 54th street and I still had trouble seeing the stage as George ended with one of the best renditions of “Some Enchanted Evening” that I have ever heard. Go see it with someone you love and bring tissues. * 1969 Our Wedding
