My View: The Public At The Public Loved Jennifer Diamond’s Debut Last Night at Joe’s Pub

Richard Jay-Alexander directed, Joseph Thalken provided the music, and this surely was not “the first time” that Jennifer Diamond did this show.  Jennifer’s show, “It’s My First Time” after a successful engagement at Feinstein’s/54 Below last year made  it’s “Downtown Edition”  debut at Joe’s Pub last night. The world of Broadway was there showing that Showtunes were Alive & Well below 14th Street.  Jennifer has a formidable array of vocal and acting talents, which when combined with her irresistible personality made it a powerful and exciting Joe’s Pub debut.  RJ’s directing gifts insured that these impressive capabilities were displayed in a fantastic cabaret performance. 

A group of very special guests added to the evening as Jennifer welcomed Samantha Massell, Christopher Sieber and Tori Murray to the stage. Joseph Thalken, musical director, brought his exceptional arrangements, band, and theatrical piano technique to accompany Jennifer.  It wasn’t “fake news” when BWW advertised last week that Jennifer Diamond’s “It’s My First Time” (Downtown Edition) would be waaay fun and that Showtunes were Alive & Well below 14th Street.  The public at the Public totally agreed.
