Sharon McNight, our favorite cabaret singer, closed her Betty, Betty, Bette tribute to Betty Hutton, Betty Grable, and Bette Davis last night at the Plush Room. Geoff, Harlan, Blurkerbear and I helped David celebrate his birthday by cheering on Sharon.
The show was good fun. Sharon is a superb show woman, and she filled the spaces between songs with a lot of details about her three subjects. The music was tamer and more limited than some of her past shows (such as Songs to Offend (Nearly) Everyone). But, what a voice! Besides, as Sharon said, how often in San Francisco do you get to see a woman do an impersonation of Bette Davis?
It was definitely another evening to write down on the list of why we live in San Francisco!
