My View: The Verdict is In – It’s A Great Show

My View: The Verdict is In – It’s A Great Show

A jury of their peers came and voted with their feet last night as they gave Will and Anthony Nunziata a standing ovation at the conclusion of their performance in the Friars Club’s Frank Sinatra Dining Room. Friar Sunny Sessa in her first producing venture for the club presented the brothers in a show titled Broadway and Beyond. The hilarious comic Dave Konig started off the evening by explaining how to get a broken glass on an iphone repaired. He tried the Apple Store, but after a visit to the genius bar and offers of an upgrade and expensive repair he opted for some scotch tape from the Duane Reade across the street and saved hundreds of dollars. Among the “educated consumers” at the club giving their unanimous enthusiastic thumbs up after the show were: Steven Reineke, music director and conductor of The New York Pops, critic and music historian Will Friedwald, famed classical pianists Melvin Stecher and Norman Horowitz, pianist/performer Billy Stritch, lyricist Chuck Steffan, Broadway producer Jamie deRoy,film maker Ramfis Myrthil, and Iridium owner Ellen Hart Sturm. The music director for the evening was Tedd Firth who also created brilliant arrangements for Will and Anthony which supported their great vocal gifts but never interfered. The fun continued at the after party at The Carlyle. The Nunziatas will be appearing in a one night only Showstoppers concert at the Highline Ballroom on January 18th.
