Lynn Henderson To Reprise A SKITCH IN TIME: MY FRIENDSHIP WITH MAESTRO SKITCH HENDERSON At Don't Tell Mama
A Skitch in Time is a tribute to the New York Pops founder who built the Pops from an idea to an international institution. Lynn Henderson and Skitch were not related, but they both shared a surname and admiration of the Great American Songbook. After bonding over music at a benefit in their Connecticut town, Skitch assisted Lynn as she created a show about his friend, Cole Porter, for a local club, with a cast ranging in age from five to eighty five. Later, Lynn and her musicians brought her cabaret shows to Hunt Hill Farm-the cooking school, store and gallery that was home to Skitch and his wife, Ruth.
Douglas J. Cohen is the arranger and music director of A Skitch in Time, with Bob Sabin on bass, joined by special guest, New York Pops Violinistand Skitch discovery, Sara Caswell. The show is directed by Klea Blackhurst.
