Stephen Holden on Jane Krakowski

The NYTimes reviews of Jane Krakowski’s act, now openend in NY, suggests that it could now be called “recovered and rehearsed”:  “The program is an anthology of songs both famous and obscure, loaded with saucy double entendres, that were once staples for the likes of Eartha Kitt, Mae West and Ethel Waters. What she brings to numbers that these and other forerunners have mined for every imaginable shade of lubricity and seduction is an intractable innocence. Instead of danger and challenge, she conveys a wholesome agreeability.”

BTW, here’s my review of her Kennedy Center outing in Cabaret Scenes
