Probably the most amount of witty words spoken in one Cabaret Show were in Ana Gasteyer’s debut engagement at Cafe Carlyle last night. Her machine gun delivery keeps you on the edge of your seat, and for a minute you think you’re in front of your TV set watching some of her famous Saturday Night Live segments. Then you are completely upended by her formidable vocal ability as she weaves her way through an eclectic song list of reimagined classics from her critically acclaimed jazz album, I’m Hip.
Gasteyer recently appeared in Fox’s hit broadcast of Grease: Live! and can currently be seen starring in Netflix’s critically acclaimed comedy series, Lady Dynamite, which was recently renewed for a second season. She will also be starring in the TBS’ new comedy series, People of Earth this fall. On stage, Gasteyer appeared in last year’s Encores! Off Center production of A New Brain, and has dazzled on Broadway with celebrated performances in Wicked, Rocky Horror, and the Royal Family. Last night it was very “Live From New York” It’s Ana Gasteyer!
