Tonight I dined with the lovely Katharine Field; a graduate of Northwestern’s highly illustrious voice and theater program. We met doing Out of Hand Theater’s V.D. Show (she played a ditzy girl in my mini-musical “Cupid’s Turn” and then the next year explored her range with another ditzy girl in my mini-musical “The Boy Who Went Blind.”) We went tonight for salad not because either of us were particularly craving salad but because I had the brilliant idea of reworking “Suddenly Seymour” from “Little Shop of Horrors” into a mega-salad-duet. Yes, in the chicken vs. the egg game of Thursday Night Dinner Songs sometimes the art comes first. Here’s Katharine with her salad:
And here we are in glorious harmony. Seriously, check out Katharine’s voice. She’s amazing. (You can also check her out on “Women Outside The Bakery”; a previous Thursday Night Dinner Song). And if you happen to be the director of a big Broadway musical, watch out! Katharine’s going to law school. So she’ll sue you if you don’t cast her.
