Marilyn Maye’s 90th

The next night, I celebrated Marilyn Maye’s 90th birthday – and she performed for at least 90 minutes!  The capacity crowd at 54 Below included many familiar faces, including Tyne DalyChristine EbersoleLiz CallawayDavid Hyde PierceBob MackieMarc ShaimanScott Wittman, and oodles of others.  So many people wanted to join in the celebration, Auntie Marilyn’s entire run sold out moments after it was announced.  It was extended, and then the extension sold out.  Someone told me they hoped we’d be as good when we’re Marilyn’s age.  Doubtful – none of us are as good as her at ANY age!  And this was not simply an evening of nostalgia – Maye’s singing is better than ever.  Powerful, insightful, and touching.  You can see some clips from the show on  I was glad to be there as Maye kicked up her heels – literally!
