Photo Coverage: Melissa Errico Sparkles at Joe's Pub
Saturday night, November 19th, Melissa Errico made her long awaited return to solo concert-ing at the newly renovated (beautifully) Joe's Pub. The venue was packed with family, friends and fans who, pretty much, went wild when she walked up onto the stage. She was accompanied by an unbelieveably expert trio of musicians led by the legendary John Oddo. The evening's music program was extremely well chosen and beautifully performed and sung. Errico's patter, storytelling and anecdotal skills were also on show, in top form and wildly entertaining.
Here is the song list:
3. What About Today? - by David Shire.
4. Feed The Birds- from the film of MARY POPPINS, The Sherman Brothers.
5. It's an Art / Meadowlark – from the Broadway Musicals WORKING and THE BAKER'S WIFE, by Stephen Schwartz.
12. Not Getting Married Today - by Stephen Sondheim from the Broadway Musical COMPANY.
14. White Christmas from the film and stage musical, WHITE CHRISTMAS, by Irving Berlin.
There were so many high points that it would be hard to choose any particular one, but can say with certainty that she re-invented Stephen Schwartz's MEADOWLARK and THE BOY NEXT DOOR will never be the same. She also stopped the show cold with David Shire's WHAT ABOUT TODAY? In addition, the audience couldn't get enough of her telling of her experience on stage in DRACULA The Musical.
We're STILL laughing.
The audience was peppered with familiar faces, including Tony Walton, John McEnroe and wife Patty Smyth, as well as husband Patrick McEnroe, John Patrick Shanley, Malcom Gets, her Director, Richard Jay-Alexander and many others, as you will see here in our photos from Saturday night.
