"No Thrill from Champagne":A New Years Eve flirtation with Molly Pope and Kim David Smith
Piano/Musical Director: Tracy Stark
Celebrate the New Year and wipe your slate clean in style with a champagne-sprinkled evening of Cole Porter, Noel Coward, and Marlene Dietrich-inspired delinquency at the hands of two of NYCs favorite post-ingenues,Molly Pope(one of downtown cabaret's most adventurous performers - The New York Times) and Kim David Smith(this generations Boy from Oz - The New York Times). Musically directed by Tracy Stark, "No Thrill" summons a neo-retro glamour, juxtaposing yesteryear with the here-and-now, through idiosyncratic arrangements and razor wit.
