My View: The Most Elegant Man In New York Is In New York’s Most Elegant Room – Tommy Tune at Cafe Carlyle

My View: The Most Elegant Man In New York Is In New York’s Most Elegant Room – Tommy Tune at Cafe Carlyle

If Chita couldn’t make it (recovering from an injury) whom would you call? The Carlyle phoned Tommy. I never got to be in a room with Fred Astaire, but if you want to experience what it must have been like, Tommy Tune is Singing and Dancing at Cafe Carlyle until January 22nd, filling the spot originally scheduled for Chita Rivera. When Tune walks into any room, but especially Cafe Carlyle your eyes and ears don’t leave the site of the the 10 time Tony Award Winner for a second. He creates an evening of song and tap in the intimate space of the Carlyle that only a person of his talents and physicality as a dancer/singer/director can create. I’ll also repeat what Tommy recounted in his act when Fred Astaire first met him, “You are a tall SOB.” I look up to Tommy Tune in every way (no drum roll), as one of the finest members of the world community and as one of the most accomplished artists of our generation.
