Stephen Sorokoff- My View: It’s All About Being Natural – Megan Hilty at Cafe Carlyle

Stephen Sorokoff- My View: It’s All About Being Natural – Megan Hilty at Cafe Carlyle

The first clue that this show would be different was given by the pianist. He had a wonderful technique and interesting melodic harmonies. He musical ideas encircled Megan’s wonderful voice with stimulating arrangements. Then I noticed something was missing. There wasn’t any music on the piano. Music director/pianist Matt Cusson doesn’t read music. He’s a “natural”! It’s somewhat frustrating and annoying (to this pianist) to realize a guy can play that effectively without the background of a substantial conventional musical education, but this kind of stuff happens. I guess the great natural ones find each other. Megan Hilty is also so charmingly natural and irrepressible in her Cabaret show. The only thing unnatural was how natural this beautiful stage and screen star can be as she royally entertains you at the Cafe Carlyle.
