My View: Cafe Carlyle’s Ceiling Just Got Raised by Mandy Gonzalez

Th Cafe Carlyle has the appropriate nightclub style low ceiling which adds to the rooms intimacy.  Mandy Gonzalez a statuesque beauty raised the roof both physically and vocally in an exciting evening in her Carlyle debut with a song list to please all tastes in music.   If you only come to hear her opening number “Raise The Roof” by Andrew Lippa it would be worth the price of admission but there is so much more.  Mandy  (Hamilton, Wicked, In the Heights, Madam Secretary) brought her sultry sophistication to Café Carlyle last night. Mandy Gonzalez: Fearless!, October 24-November 4. The unmatched power and grace of Mandy’s signature style turns new songs into instant classics and makes classics new again.
