Performances begin Oct. 31 at Danny's Skylight Room in Manhattan's midtown theatre district. Kreston and Lahm were owners of the recently closed Judy's in Chelsea, a respected cabaret on Eighth Avenue. Directed by Richard Hendrickson, the new evening was developed from four acclaimed shows that the duo presented at Judy's. Musical numbers range from "Good Ole, Bad Old Days" by Anthony Newley to "I'm All I've Got" by Felicia Sanders to "Baby Dream Your Dream" by Dorothy Fields to Lahm's own "Never Too Little."
Lahm, whose mother was the great Broadway and Hollywood lyricist and book writer Dorothy Fields, is widely recognized as the official keeper of the Fields musical canon. As a lyricist, the late Fields is represented on Broadway this season with Never Gonna Dance, a stage version of the musical film, "Swing Time." At Goodspeed Opera House, her songs are being heard in a revised revival of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, in East Haddam, CT. A Broadway revival of Sweet Charity is also in the works.
Playing with Lahm and Kreston are Tim Ferguson on bass and Bobby Shankin on drums.
Anthony, Felicia, Dorothy, David and Me plays Fridays Oct. 31-Nov. 14 at 7 PM and Saturdays Nov. 22 & 29 at 9:30 PM.
Danny's Skylight Room is at 346 W. 46th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. There is a cover charge of $20 with a $10 minimum. For more information or to make reservations call (212) 265-8133.
