Nicole Ligerman a Success @ Sterling'sNicole Ligerman a Success @ Sterling's

On Sunday August 15 Funny Girl Nicole Ligerman presented her cabaret show The Bitch with the Dog Ruined My Life: Memoirs of a Non-genue to a packed house at Sterling's Upstairs @ Vitello's. Ligerman is most assuredly not an ingenue, but a character lady, and like her idol Barbra Streisand, she struggles and suffers to show the world that she's the greatest star. Her patter was delightful, especially the opening where she sang to a photo on top of the piano, a la Judy Garland on film to Clark Gable: 'You Made Me Love You'. When she turned the photograph around to face the audience, it was of Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz. Ligerman proceeded to explain that she isn't crazy about the film, but indeed loves Hamilton, after which she sang a song she claimed was cut from Oz 'I'm a Bitch'. It was a very funny moment, and, of course, afterwards she pointed out that she had been kidding, that the song was never associated with Oz. (more...)

by Don Grigware - Aug 14, 2010

Funny Girl is rarely mounted anywhere. Seeing the show - somewhat flawed: could have a stronger book - but one that I adore - in Sacramento this week, it dawned on me why. You must have one singularly incredible star performer - one who can act and sing greater than most (the greatest star - please forgive, Mr. Merrill!), and let's face it, there are many talented ladies available, but just not that good, at least not up to the unforgettable Barbra Streisand who originated the part.
