Dinner with Divas

Dinner with Divas

By Tom Wachunas

And now for something completely different. Lately the lyrics from two songs have been pleasantly invading my thoughts. From the musical “Annie”: “Tomorrow, tomorrow. I love ya, tomorrow. You’re only a day away.” And from “Cabaret”: “What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play.”

Tomorrow, Friday June 18, only a day away, music will be made at Canton’s only venue for cabaret-style dinner theatre. Might make a nifty gift for Fathers Day. In any event, this healthy dose of sweet nostalgia should satisfy anyone with a heart for the pop divas of yore. My next post will be a review.

Meanwhile, thank Lois DiGiacomo for championing an oft-forgotten entertainment form. I’ve reprinted the info here.
