One was in a punk band before she went Broadway, the other has wowed Stevie Wonder, Barry White and the denizens of the Kit Kat Klub. The Full Monty's Annie Golden and Cabaret's Vicky Cave have paired together for a single night of singing Jan. 18 at the Cutting Room.
Golden will be singing the punk and rock 'n' roll of her youth at the Sh-K Boom Room when she was the chick singer of the Shirts, a hard rock mainstay at CBGB's in the late 70's. She later went on to appear in the film version of "Hair," after playing in the Broadway company. She now works mostly in the theatre, where she's recently lent her comic talents to On the Town, Assassins and Saturn Returns.
Cave's Broadway credits include The Who's Tommy, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and took over the role of Lulu in Cabaret. She regularly sings with the Broadway Gospel Choir and has recently performed with the Steely Dan Y2K Orchestra. Members of the band will join her in the Sh-K-Boom Room.
Tickets are $10 at the door. The Cutting Room, a new restaurant owned by The Best Man's Chris Noth, is located at 19 West 24th Street. For more information, call Noah Cornman at (646) 505 0496.
