My View: Traffic Jams In Palm Beach Last Night – Christine Andreas is at The Colony

Broadway mainstay Christine Andreas showcased her impeccable vocal abilities in her new Cabaret show at The Colony in Palm Beach last night and Stephen & Eda  were there. In an evening evoking the glamour and ‘swelligance’ of an era gone by, appropriate to the gorgeous surroundings of Palm Beach, she brought to mind the swinging energy of Ella Fitzgegerald and the cool melancholy of June Christy, as well as the show stopping style of  Barbra Streisand. Andreas’s talent is as intimate as it is epic, the type of voice that reminds one why these songs were written in the first place. Christine’s pianist and musical director for this engagement was the Oscar Nominated and Golden Globe Winner composer/arranger Kenny Ascher.  Along with Dick Sarpola on bass and Jim Saporito on drums this was one of the musical highlights of The Royal Room’s Cabaret season.

Christine Andreas made her Broadway debut in the 1974 revue Words & Music and received Tony nominations for her work in the revivals of Oklahoma! and On Your Toes. Her other Broadway appearances include roles in The Scarlet Pimpernel as well as the revivals of Angel Street and My Fair Lady. Her solo recordings include The Carlyle Set, Love Is Good (Fynsworth Alley) and Here’s to the Ladies (PS Classics).
