TORONTO - On Saturday December 15th, singer Lindsay Sutherland Boal and pianist Patti Loach return to the Green Door Cabaret’s stage with a show for the holidays: Love, Longing and Lunacy. They will be joined by special guest, John Loach, trumpet.
Among the show highlights will be a set where Boal - who's known for her commanding stage presence, zany sense of humour and expertise in German "Kabarett" - sings a trio of elegant Weimar Republic songs (including the classic Falling in Love Again) by Friedrich Hollaender. In English and German.
She'll also perform a collection of Kurt Weill numbers that have been hilariously "re-imagined" by Toronto native Ray Jessel (no stranger to the Green Door Cabaret) and composer Robert Jason Brown, the latter of whom lends his unique touch to Surabaya Santa.
Boal, Loach and trumpet player John Loach end the evening with an exquisite arrangement of Thad Jones’ A Child is Born, created especially for them by New York cabaret legend, Tex Arnold.
This is a show for anyone who loves, yearns to be loved ...or feels slightly “loony” during the holiday season and is ready to laugh about it.
Love, Longing and Lunacy
