Review: Donna McKechnie Joins Susie Mosher's Lineup At The Birdland Theater

Donna McKechnie, the Tony Award Winning Actress (A Chorus Line) was in a different line last night. The super star was in The Lineup hosted by Susie Mosher at the Birdland Theater. Whether you're upstairs, downstairs, or on the line waiting to get into the club, there are celebs all over the place at Birdland and last night was no different. Tony Award winner Chita Rivera was in the house cheering a performance by her daughter Lisa Mordente who sang in Susie's wild variety show. It also wasn't to shabby that TV ( Madam Secretary) Film (Jersey Boys) and Broadway star (Waitress) Erich Bergen was in last night's Lineup too.

In addition, Susie had some great singers, Carla Bordonada, Mark William Noa Zimmerman, Deidre O'Neil, Sam Gravitte, and the Colo Sisters. The excitement happens every Tuesday at 9:30 and to quote Linda Lavin "now ya know".

Michael Orland supplied the exceptional sight reading and fantastic impromptu arrangements.
