A Pope to Believe In

A Pope to Believe In

BY DAVID NOH | There will probably never be another Golden Age of Cabaret as there was in the 1970s, when nearly every block in Manhattan seemed to have at least one boîte where supernovas, almost-stars with cult followings, and unknowns alike could get up on stage and attempt to bring an audience to its knees […]

Kathy LUVS Her LBGTAQ12345Caitlyns

BY DAVID NOH | Though the ostensible reason for our being in touch was to discuss her “Boroughing Through Brooklyn and Queens” mini-tour in April, Kathy Griffin started our chat with two satisfying tidbits. First, that she was wearing Nordstrom pajamas. And, then, that she had done her homework on this newspaper in advance. “I […]

Using Her Celebrity Powers For Good  

Using Her Celebrity Powers For Good  

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | You may have heard of Bob the Drag Queen. You may have seen her strutting around at one of her many gigs around town. And you may have seen her on the eighth season of .” But don’t worry — if you somehow have no idea who Bob the Drag Queen is, […]

Veterans Kicking Strong

Veterans Kicking Strong

BY DAVID NOH | If she doesn’t already, Bette Midler, soon to be the new Dolly on Broadway, should know what a deep influence she has had on her fellow entertainers. In three interviews this past week — including with Kathy Griffin  — very talented and very different ladies each, coincidentally, found serious reason to mention […]

“Society’s Child” Returns to Manhattan

“Society’s Child” Returns to Manhattan

BY DAVID NOH | If for no other reason than the poignantly empathic song “At 17,” prolific singer-songwriter Janis Ian is assured a place in music immortality. The troubled youthful reminiscence, released in 1975, has touched a chord with generations of listeners and became a cultural reference point in TV and movies from “The Simpson” to […]

The Wonder of Christmas Eve  

The Wonder of Christmas Eve  

BY DAVID NOH | At this time of year, I can’t think of anyone more appropriate to interview than Christmas Eve herself, aka actress Ann Harada, who put her indelible stamp on this role she originated in “Avenue Q.” We sat down the day after her sold-out annual holiday Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS benefit blow-out, […]

It’s a Dog’s Life  

It’s a Dog’s Life  

BY DAVID NOH | There is no better demonstration of ace comic timing on the New York stage now than Annaleigh Ashford playing a dog, in the titular role of A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia.” It’s the kind of twee whimsy that rises or falls on the casting of this central role and one almost shudders to think […]

Emotional Rescue  

Emotional Rescue  

BY MICHAEL SHIREY | Mary Lambert is not afraid to get real with you. Nor does she care if her show makes you uncomfortable — or even leaves you in tears. Fortunately, the singer-songwriter is also quick to follow up with a good fart joke. It might sound crass, but the effect is, in truth, more […]

A Scaredy Cat Climbs Higher  

A Scaredy Cat Climbs Higher  

BY CHRISTOPHER MURRAY | There’s no good way to talk about normal. We’re all the same monkeys walking around in the same suits. Almost.” This comment arrived offhand from songwriter and performer Dane Terry, delivered in his singular Midwestern drawl, which manages to be both louche and wide-eyed at the same time. It could also serve […]

Melba Moore Fêted as a Hero

Melba Moore Fêted as a Hero

BY DAVID NOH | On October 26, Tony-winning, Grammy-nominated star Melba Moore was honored by the HIV Experience Resource Organization at the group’s second annual Broadway and Ballet HERO Awards. The honor recognized this versatile performer’s work over the years in the fight against HIV/ AIDS. Having caught Moore earlier this year in a spectacular […]
