Ann Kitteredge at the National Capital Cabaret Festival

Anne Kitteredge swept to the stage in a deeply cut v-neck dress of champaigne-sequined brocade with a significant train for her show Movie Night and launched into “As Time Goes.” She explained, “I’m so glad I get to share my love of movie music!” What followed was a spellbinding, well-curated program  mixing movie chestnuts and less-familiar numbers:

  • As Time Goes By
  • If I Had a Talking Picture of You
  • Another Day of Sun
  • 10432 Sheep
  • Fred Astaire Medley: Puttin’ on the Ritz / Top Hat / Steppin’ Out with My Baby / Cheek to Cheek / It Only Happens when I Dance with You / Let’s Face the Music
  • Hi Lili, Hi Lo
  • Nobody Does It Better
  • They’re Either Too Young or Too Old
  • Lost Horizon
  • Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life
  • What Can You Lose
  • Stormy Weather / My Man / I Fall In Love Too Easily / The Man That Got Away
  • The Way We Were
  • At the Beginning
  • Encore: When You Wish Upon a Star

That soignée-est of musical directors Christopher Denny provided his usual elegant support for the show.

As a special thank you, Kitteredge had packages of popcorn for the audience, so they could remember her at their next movie night.
