My View: Clothes Make The Man (Woman) – Not These Performers

My View: Clothes Make The Man (Woman) – Not These Performers

Sitting in the spectacular Cabaret venue named Helsinki Hudson (located up the Hudson River 120 miles north of Feinstein’s/54 Below) I began to think of Shakespeare & Company, which is also one of my favorite haunts. “For Apparel oft proclaims the man” is a valid assessment by William Shakespeare, but he obviously didn’t know The Skivvies. Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley are two inventive singer/actor/musicians who happen to perform their stripped-down arrangements of original and standard tunes literally stripped down to their underwear. The Skivvies have a lot of fans down the river in New York City and their sold out shows at Feinstein’s/54 Below are always a fun happening. The Helsinki Hudson engagement was a benefit event for a local organization called “animalkind”. Last year animalkind rescued 1,200 cats and kittens. The cabaret/restaurant was overflowing with purring animal lovers and The Skivvies performance was exciting on all levels. Mark Twain was wrong when he said “naked people have no influence in society” but I must admit, the next time I’m in The Carlyle, Birdland, or the Metropolitan Room I’d rather see some of my favorite cabaret singers dressed up, not down. Talking about inventive and exciting……the executive chef Hugh Horner’s menu is just that, and proprietors Deborah McDowell and Marc Schafler have created a must visit entertainment/food establishment in the Berkshire area.
