To ring in 2016 in incomparable style, on 12/30 I got to sing nine (count 'em, nine) songs with lyrics by the gorgeous, brilliant Amanda Yesnowitz at one of my favorite cabaret venues, the Duplex. I was backed up superlatively on the keys by Alexander Rovang, and accompanied onstage by Brendan McGrady and La Yesnowitz herself. Musical collaborators included Deborah Abramson, Brad Alexander, Brian Cimmet, Lisa DeSpain, Doug Katsaros, Steve Mills, and the composer of Death For Five Voices, Peter Mills!! Videos forthcoming. Happy New Year!!!!
This November Sarah was part of an extraordinary international developmental residency workshop IN ITALY with Prospect Theater Company, culminating in two performances of Death For Five Voices (book by Cara Reichel and Peter Mills, music and lyrics by Peter Mills) at the Castello Gesualdo in Gesualdo, Campania and at Il Teatro Gesualdo in Avellino. The performance was directed by Prospect's founding artistic director, Cara Reichel, music directed by Max Mamon, and stage managed by Kat West. She starred as Sylvia Albana alongside Wilson Bridges (La Cage Aux Folles), Ryan Bauer-Walsh (Billy Elliot, Zorro), Peter Saide (Sense And Sensibility), Meghan McGeary (The Blue Flower), Tina Scariano and Jaime Valles. We all ate a lot of pasta, and we already miss our extraordinary hosts in Gesualdo (if you ever visit, and you should, stay here: http://www.zembalo.it)
