Not Necessarily a Santa DIVA!
Dear Readers, please forgive my promotional enthusiasm here - just take a note San Diegans ... theatre-goers ... cabaret fans ... a touch of Sophie Tucker, Phyllis Diller and Ethel Merman - all wrapped-up in a lot of Sharon McKnight - and, that's WHO - is making a must-see-hear cabaret stop-over this week ... this Thursday evening, Dec 11th - at the popular Hillcrest supper cabaret MARTINIS Above Fourth - with, I'm confident ... a big-belt song kick-off at 8pm!
Tony-nominee Sharon McNight’s show, is gonna "sleigh" you. It's an irreverent look at the traditions of the season. In fact, “Twisted Xmas”, is a different kind of holiday show. If you’re looking for a warm and cozy show, filled with the traditional carols - look elsewhere.
This is definitely not a Donny & Marie’s Christmas Program. Over the past decades, during the holidays, while Rosemary Clooney touted a "White Christmas" and Bruce Vilanch roasted his chestnuts over an open fire - Sharon McNight offered an alternative choice from the expected songs. She has stockpiled myriad and outrageous, wacky musical commentaries - on the 12 days of everything, from Santa, elves, gift wrapping, toys, cold, weather, snow - and let’s not forget ... “the family.”
For this former choreographer-director, my own fond memories of working with Sharon McKnight - Hollywood's diva-of-divas, in a variety of shows, go back many ... many years! So, it is with considerable anticipation this night, that I've gathered a few close friends and colleagues to share in her show 'antics'.
Whether you are a newcomer to MARTINIS Above Fourth, or a weekly regular - you will simply enjoy the cabaret's ambiance, the welcoming model-perfect wait-staff, their new chef's tasty cuisine, and their bartender's varied-flavored "martinis" - but, you will also ... see-hear that Sharon McKnight is not your expected Santa-Diva ... but, a DIVA for all generations!
