Hey, muffins! I know it’s been a minute since I wrote you last – lots of new stuff brewing up here in my magical slum! I will fill you in on recent developments in a forthcoming post (does anybody still read these?), including an update on brand new baby Horizon – but here’s a quick heads-up on something I’m doing next week.
On Monday, August 11, I will be musical director for the hot mess you see on the left of this page. Her name is Patti Murin, and she is a Broadway star who is hilarious and sings like a maniac. In fact, she pretty much does everything like a maniac. Because she is a maniac.
I first met Patti when she came in to do some Horizon demos (like this one!!), and again when she was cast in an industry reading of a new project I’m orchestrating (more on that soon). Recently she asked me to MD/arrange her very first solo show at the fabulous 54 Below. That’s what she calls it, a “solo show.” I know, right? And yet… there’s a band. And guest stars. I know a cabaret when I’m in one. Once a carney, always a carney. (One of us! One of us!!)
She’s really terrific, so you should come. Also, she’s an actress, so if the entire Eastern seaboard doesn’t show up, it’s gonna be my fault somehow. So help a sister out. And Patti!
