A full house at Feinstein’s/54 Below made it through the pre-Inaugural barricades last night and were treated to the best Ball one could have as Christine Ebersole returned with her critically acclaimed show After The Ball. Christine, with laser like precision uses her beautiful voice to find the most creative notes to weave around and infuse the well known melodies on her song list. We were sitting with her husband Bill Moloney and I couldn’t help but ask him. ‘You’ve seen her show and have heard these funny witty stories many times, how come you are laughing like it’s the first time”? Bill accurately pointed out….”it’s the way her timing changes and adapts”. Like one of her songs, “I’m Old Fashioned”, I worship great artists who sing great material, and if they are funny too…well it doesn’t get better. Ironically Christine, who has one of the most beautiful faces in the business sang some very funny tunes about maintaining a face. The Susan Werner classic “What Did You Do To Your Face?” was hysterical and so true.
