Amanda King presented a freewheeling, rollicking evening with her show Lost Women, Forgotten Songs at the National Capital Cabaret Festival. She took the audience on a journey through her song discoveries… material that’s been forgotten that she feels deserves a second chance. There were also performers that she was determined to make a little less forgotten. Through it all, she presented fascinating material and portrayed a variety of moods – opening with swingy “Rhumba Jumps,” the tenderness in “A Porter’s Love Song to Chambermaid,” or the sardonic humor of “Loveless Love.”
