My View: Dick Robinson’s Birthday Continues at 54 Below with Marilyn Maye

Published

on

Marilyn Maye (96) and Dick Robinson (86), a decade apart in age… both have a youthful exuberance for the music and performance of The Great American Songbook. The Songbook is played on Robinson’s Legends Radio stations worldwide ‘round the clock’ and Marilyn is singing it around the country in nightclubs and concert halls.

The “old jock”, as Dick is affectionately referred to may not be able to do that Marilyn Maye kick when she sings “IT’S TODAY” but he sure was swinging along with the rest of us last night at 54 Below. Dick was celebrating his 86th birthday while watching Marvelous 96 year old Marilyn celebrate her Birthday Month with another phenomenal show.

Ken Fallin’s Broadway: The Outsiders

Published

on

These boys are taking Broadway by storm Jason Schmidt, Sky Lakota-Lynch, and Brody Grant. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1967, the hardened hearts and aching souls of Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade and their chosen family of “outsiders” are in a fight for survival and a quest for purpose in a world that may never accept them. A story of the bonds that brothers share and the hopes we all hold on to, this gripping new musical reinvigorates the timeless tale of “haves and have nots”, of protecting what’s yours and fighting for what could be.

The Outsiders opened on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, 242 W 45th Street.

My View: Dr. Perrin Blank Makes His Cafe Centro Debut

Published

on

Dr. Perrin Blank, celebrity Dentist “filled” (no pun intended)  the Cafe Centro music room last night with friends, fans and probably some patients who came to hear this Palm Beach legend’s cabaret performance. It was Perrin this time who opened his mouth wide and sang a great curated song list accompanied by the extraordinary musical duo Maycol & Lilian, (who perform weekly at Cafe Centro). That old borscht belt saying “don’t give up your day job” does not apply to Dr. Blank.  Perrin created a wonderful evening of musical fun as he “pulled out” all the stops during his entertaining show.
