The Waiting in the Wings Cabaret launched the 2012 season with an evening of Broadway and Jazz Classics performed by rising New York performers Andrew Keltz and Andi Alhadeff. Accompanied by a full band, the duo sang solo and duets that entertained a full house at the opening show. Bedford Middle School students, Brandon Rakowski and Zoe Samuels brought some hometown flavor with their performance of You’re the Top.
“It was a great evening,” said Mary Lee Clayton, Westport Woman’s Club President. “Guests had the opportunity to enjoy appetizers, compliments of Matsu Sushi and Blue Lemon, and have a glass of wine while watching the show. All proceeds go to support the Westport Woman’s Club Student Scholarship Fund.” Additional shows featuring new performers are in the works for March 17 and April 28.
Special thanks for the evening to go to Castle Wines and Spirits for providing wine and to the Community Partners participating in the Scholar Dining Dollars program: Bobby Q’s, Blue Lemon, Da Pietro’s, Matsu Sushi, River House and Rizzuto’s.
