We had a wonderful Chicago Cabaret Professionals Gala Benefit 2014 at Park West "The Song's the Thing"

Bob Moreen and KT McCammond and I did a very special Sondheim medley…more to come!

"The evening's other tour force was an extended set-piece by three of Chicago's most admired cabaret artists: pianist-singer Bob Moreen and vocalists Suzanne Petri and KT McCammond. It takes a certain amount of life experience to be able to do justice to the songs of Stephen Sondheim, and these three got down to the gritty essence of his work. To call their performance a medley would be to underestimate its value, the artists somehow weaving segments of "Beautiful Girls," "The Ladies Who Lunch," "A Boy Like That" and five other songs into a dramatic whole, complete with a bit of choreography. Surely they ought to build an entire Sondheim evening out of this tremendous beginning." Howard Reich Chicago Tribune
