Songwriter and singer Amanda Green's newest cabaret show, Put a Little Love in Your Mouth!, a collection of her "tongue-in-cheek songs," will play 8 PM Oct. 2 and 16 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre at the West Bank Cafe in Manhattan.
Her special guests are Brooks Ashmanskas, Jonathan Dokuchitz and Kim Lindsay.
Green, the daughter of Adolph Green and Phyllis Newman, played a successful cabaret run of Take It Like Amanda at the Beechman in 1999. She is a MAC Award winner for Outstanding Comedy Song and Comedy Performer.
Green's comic performance style and original music and lyrics have been called a cross between Nashville and New York sophistication. Among her past songs: "We Broke Up, I Broke Down," "Every Time a Friend Succeeds A Little Piece of Me Dies Inside," "Took a Lot of Money to Look This Cheap" and "The Best Piece of Ass in Savannah."
Cover is $15 and there is a one-drink minimum. The Westbank Cafe is at 407 42nd Street, at Ninth Avenue. For reservations, call (212) 695-6909. — By Kenneth Jones
