For the record:
New York, NY: 54 Below presented: “Andrea McArdle & Donna McKechnie Celebrate Sondheim & Hamlisch”
For The Record:
Review: “They sing the soundtrack to their lives while celebrating the composers Stephen Sondheim and Marvin Hamlisch with richly delivered turns.Theater Pizzazz.com
They opened the show with Sondheim’s “Old Friends” from the Broadway musical Merrily We Roll Along.
The show included a duo of “Everybody Ought to Have a Maid” from A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum.
McKechnie shined in her delivery of “Could I Leave You” from Follies and McArdle holds her own as she sang “Nothing “ from A Chorus Line.
The evening is light and splendid with fine turns on classic songs from charming personalities, wonderful harmonies, and misty water colored memories.”
