The sequins in her stunning white gown shone like stars and her voice had a truly celestial quality. She remarked that it was a show for dreamers, stargazers and romantics, and the extremely well-thought-out song selection included something for each. Sheehan has a beautiful sound that can reach operatic heights, but is still able to belt out “Space Oddity” and “Lost in the Stars.” Interspersed between songs were interesting, informative and entertaining facts about the cosmos.

Sheehan’s appropriate opening number, delivered as she walked through the audience, was a dreamy “Stairway to the Stars.” It was followed by Jane Tayler’s clever take on “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” “Caravan” began slowly and intensified as Sheehan sensually gyrated in a Middle Eastern dance. The operatic quality of her voice was on display with “Moonfall.” Some very funny moon jokes preceded “Old Devil Moon” and a particularly lovely “I Wished on the Moon.” The closing number was a very warm “What a Wonderful World” followed by an extremely celestial encore of “Stardust” that left me soaring to the stars as I walked up from 54 Below.
