Bill Morrissey wrote songs that resonate today as deeply and true as they did the day he put pen to paper. Infused with his sharp wit, Morrissey's works were worlds unto themselves, so well-crafted that it was nearly impossible to find the seam between his imagination and the real world.

What do you get when you combine the pianistic finesse of Michael Feinstein, the smooth phrasing of Tony Bennett, and the bawdy wit of Bette Midler? You get Michael McAssey, who for 40 years has reigned as the clown prince of New York cabaret, and has enchanted as one of its most talented troubadours. He calls what he does 'schtick.' But that's undervaluing his unique blend of beautiful ballad singing and standup, or rather 'sit down' comedy.

Tony-award winner Beth Leavel (The Prom, The Drowsy Chaperone) has made a career out of going too far. Her two most famous roles were delightfully over-the-top women with a healthy dose of self-obsession. Her comedic style is always to ride right up to the line and pause for just long enough to make you think “Oh no, she won’t go there. It would just be too outrageous.” And then of course she does the thing that no one else would do, leaving you howling with laughter. The old vaudevillians called it “chutzpah.” Lucille Ball had it. Penny Marshall had it. Bette Midler has it. And Beth Leavel has it in spades. Her courage to just keep moving the line is why we love her.

Overture and opening scene. The choral of nuns. It’s a beautiful, melodic and gorgeous song to begin with, but this rendition is just angelic. If Sunday mass would be so good in actual church, I would convert immediately and be there front row every week. Lead by Mother Superior (opera singer Francis van Broekhuizen), you’re looking forward to another song with the nuns. Francis is a delicious Mother Superior. She’s down to earth, warm, understanding yet strict and finally, present us with the most heart-felt rendition of Climb Every Mountain I’ve ever heard.
