Faith Prince

Feinstein’s at the Nikko, San Francisco, CA, June 19, 2015

Faith-Prince-Cabaret-Scenes-Magazine_212Musical comedy is a revered genre in both cabaret and Broadway, and Faith Prince is one of its finest practitioners. Offering up a smorgasbord of her career, the brassy and bold Prince opened big with a belting medley of Stephen Sondheim’s desire for fame and fortune, “Broadway Baby” (Follies), and, from her Tony-winning role as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, Frank Loesser’s “Adelaide’s Lament.” Prince has had a very successful career on stage and screen and has worked consistently since moving to NYC in 1981.

“The Other Side of the Tracks” from the musical Little Me, and “Somewhere That’s Green” from Little Shop of Horrors both speak to the desire to upgrade one’s status, whether it’s finding love or a better home.

Dave Frishberg’s quintessential life-on-the-road song “Sweet Kentucky Ham” and the beautiful ballad “Tattooed Boy in Memphis,” show a soft, reflective side of Prince. The show took off with the introduction of Prince’s family, son Henry on guitar and husband, trumpeter Larry Lunetta. “The Man with a Horn” (Eddie DeLange/Truman Eliot “Jack” Jenney/Bonnie Lake), a moody love song, is tailor made for Prince, who fell in love with the trumpeter while he was in the pit for one of her early shows. She finished the set with Kander and Ebb’s showstopper “But the World Goes ‘Round” before returning to her more humorous side with an encore of Sondheim and Mary Rodgers’s “The Boy from….,” a hilarious parody of the “The Girl from Ipanema.

” It’s prime material for Prince and she works her magic in a faux-breathy bossa nova style.

Faith Prince has found a new love in teaching master classes to young students, a position for which she is eminently qualified. Hopefully, she will continue to grace the stage in years to come.

Always interested in the arts, Steve was encouraged to begin producing and, in 1998, staged four, one-man vehicles starring San Francisco's most gifted performers. In 1999, he began the Viva Variety series, a live stage show with a threefold mission to highlight, support, and encourage gay and gay-friendly art in all the performance forms, to entertain and document the shows, and to contribute to the community by donating proceeds to local non-profits. The shows utilized the old variety show style popularized by his childhood idol Ed Sullivan. He’s produced over 150 successful shows, including parodies of Bette Davis’s gothic melodramedy Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte and Joan Crawford’s very awful Trog. He joined Cabaret Scenes 2007 and enjoys the writing and relationships he’s built with very talented performers.
