My View: The Dress Code Changes For Certain Performers

My View: The Dress Code Changes For Certain Performers

When you see photos of night club audiences taken before the 1960’s notice how everyone was dressed. Men in white shirts, jackets and ties, and women wearing their finest. It always starts an evening off on a higher note when you pick out your “dressy” clothes before going to a show. I’ve always felt that it’s almost a sign of respect for the venue and performer. Casual is nice, and it’s a bit more comfortable but when I know I’m in for a special evening I want to be dressed for it. So it was with the crowd at Feinstein’s/54 Below last night. The advertisement for the show didn’t mention any special dress code but I guess everyone seemed to sense they wanted to look special for Liliane Montevecchi. From the famous such as Arlene Dahl, Karen Akers, KT Sullivan, to the regular crowd the audience looked like those bygone days of glamour. I’m sure even if Alan Cumming had attended he would not be sleevless. Liliane Montevecchi is a star and this was a very romantic French way to start off the Valentine’s Day week. With songs like Le Vie En Rose, Ne Me Quitte Pas, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Autumn Leaves and But Beautiful, it was a love fest between a legendary performer and audience the entire evening. If you want to have a great night with your date during and after the show, come to this one.
