Maureen McGovern at Arena Stage

long-winding-road-192Just got back from seeing Maureen McGovern in A Long and Winding Road at Arena Stage-in-Exile-in-Crystal -City.

I’ll link to my official review in Cabaret Scenes when they post it on their Web site.  But in short — WOW!!!

McGovern provides an amazing presentation of Baby Boomer memories.  But she is a consummate musical storyteller.  And she really draws the audience in: sitting in Row K, I felt like I was on stage with her!  And she has the wisdom to know what is effective in her voice at present — no “recovering soprano” she!  And Jeff Harris’s work on piano is simply awe-inspiring.

The show only runs through April 12 — so don’t delay.
