My View: Rev. Shawn Moninger Has A New Residence and David Friedman Is A Visitor

My View: Rev. Shawn Moninger Has A New Residence and David Friedman Is A Visitor

David Friedman and Shawn Moninger still reside in Connecticut, but Rev. Shawn Moninger has now become a successful cabaret performer and was offered a residency in New York’s famed Metropolitan Room. David was a guest in his show and Jamie deRoy and I chatted with them right before Shawn’s performance. Nancy Timpanaro-Hogan opened the show with some wonderful singing and comedy. The Rev. Shawn’s “sermon” of humor was a great way to end 2015 and the message of David Friedman’s song “We Live On Borrowed Time” is something to think about as we start the New Year.
