Ron Squeri — “Haunted Heart” at the Duplex

OK, I’m prejudiced, but Ron’s show Haunted Heart at the Duplex tonight was a spectacular success.  I thought he sounded terrific, had a great selection of material, and a nice flow to the show.  Lina Koutrakos did a terrific job directing, paring some of the dialogue and getting the flow working.  Thomas Honeck did amazing work with the lighting — creating a roller disco at one point (take that Xanadu!). 

And David Gaines did yoeman work music directing.  For those of you who don’t know, Rick Jensen who did the arrangements for Ron’s CD had emergency surgery last week, and was unable to play the show as scheduled.  So David Gaines filled in at the last minute, and he and Ron did the show on 2 rehearsals — and sounded amazing!

A special thanks to everyone who came to the show!!!  It was so great to see so many people invest in Ron, coming from DC, New York, New Jersey, and points beyond. (DC cabaret artists extraordinaire Kathy Reilly and Emily Everson at left)

Thanks so much to Matt Howe for the photos!!!

    Oh, Ron…oh, Michael! My brother and I had the best, best time at your show. The selections, the pacing, the amazing lighting…all were fantastic. All eliciting the perfect cabaret ratio of tears to laughter.
    I’m stealing the following kudos from someone at the table behind me, but who cares…? “Nicely-Nicely done, Ron!!”
