    I’m thrilled to make my debut at the Music Theatre of CT, in their HOT SUMMER NIGHTS Cabaret Series.  I’ll be presenting one of the first cabaret shows I performed in NYC, with a few updates to pay homage to the return to my hometown of Norwalk, CT.

    Kenneth Gartman is my musical director once again, and we’d love to see you all there.  The theatre is intimate, so get your seats FAST!  Click here for more information or call:  203.454.3883.   Tickets are $25 and $35 and there will be an intermission, so you can enjoy an adult beverage sold at the a theatre.
