If you know Haley Swindal’s pedigree you will understand why I will refrain from commenting that her show “knocked it out of the park”. I will also not say she swung and sung for the fences and hit a home run. I will resist the temptation to say that “Team Haley” went to it’s talented bench to put together the winning combination of Tedd Firth musical director and Will Nunziata, concert director (who conceived the show). However I will say that her grandfather George Steinbrenner, who in addition to being “The Boss” of the New York Yankees, loved music and had a passion for Broadway. He would have been giving a standing ovation (with the rest of the crowd) to Haley Swindal at the conclusion of her ground breaking new show titled Golden Girl at Feinstein’s/54 Below last night. More than a Cabaret Show, Golden Girl starring Haley was the continuing emergence of a great singer and actor who had the audience laughing, crying, and tapping their feet from her first medley of songs that had eyes popping as she glamorously sang her way into the club from the back of the bar area. A star was born and re-born last night, and if word gets out her next concert might have to be held at Yankee Stadium.
