Loni Ackerman at The Metropolitan Room

February 14th, 2012 by Oscar E Moore

In her new cabaret show, “Next to Ab-Normal,” ebullient Broadway veteran Loni Ackerman recalls personal stories of her unusual New York upbringing (including her childhood associations with such “family friends” as Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon,) as well as revisiting songs she sang in New York hits like “Starting Here, Starting Now” or in one of her lengthy associations with the shows of Andrew Lloyd Webber.  Directed by BarryKleinbort, with musical direction by Paul Greenwood, Ms. Ackerman’s repertoire also includes charming standards, contemporary songs, even one of her own compositions which became the theme song for a “very special” French film made during her time in Paris.  Another prime example of her life as something just “Next to Ab-Normal.”

The dates for her show NEXT TO AB-NORMAL are February 24th, March 2nd, 23rd and 30th.  All at 7pm

Twenty dollars.  Two beverage minimum  212 206 0440 The Metropolitan Room 34 West 22nd Street
