I am very busily and excitedly putting together a sexy little show inspired by "the most exciting woman in the world," as a collaboration with American Lyric Theater in support of their new chamber opera "Why Is Eartha Kitt Trying To Kill Me?" Acting as entrée to American Lyric Theater's exciting presentation, my Eartha-inspired cabaret features new arrangements of classics from the Kitt catalogue, helmed and performed my myself, and the talented Mr. Benjamin Ickies (piano, accordion, synth).

"Why Is Eartha Kitt Trying To Kill Me?" is a new one-act opera by composer Jeffrey Dennis Smith and librettist David Johnston, based on Johnston’s one-act comic monodrama about a mysterious – and unlikely – murder suspect. A tour de force love story and mad scene all in one, join us as we dive into the heart and mind of a man with a singular showbiz obsession as he shares his bizarre confession concerning the fate of a hot young art world star.
