Among the guests at James Naughton's Cafe Carlyle opening April 16 were film legend Lauren Bacall and musical theatre's Melissa Errico.

In his New York cabaret debut, Naughton's run at the plush boîte — which has presented such cabaret icons as Bobby Short, Barbara Cook and Eartha Kitt — continues through May 4. Accompanied by a quartet led by musical director John Oddo, the star of stage and screen performs an eclectic mix of tunes by such composers as Tom Waits, Randy Newman, Dave Frishberg, Rodgers and Hart, Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter.
