Sierra Boggess

Sierra Boggess

Sierra Boggess’ voice and stories are as impressive as ever. Her big personality and touching spirit spoke volumes, more than most performers can, and fans of hers could only be overwhelmed with joy as she recounted her wildest successes on stage and off. From private performances for the Queen of England and sharing time with Andrew Lloyd Webber as her accompanist to almost becoming the Frenchified Christine Daaé and originating the role of Ariel in The Little Mermaid, Boggess’ world has been filled with the darling moments of a theater girl’s dreams. And, while she sang “Part of Your World” (Howard Ashman/Alan Menken), it’s hard to think she’d long for anything other than what she has now.

She filled the song list for the evening with her favorites from two decades with a mic at her side.

Just about everything Boggess sang echoed beautifully.

Her clear voice out rang well as she breezed through sharp arrangements constructed by pianist/MD Brian Hertz and waltzed through songs from just about every show she’s done, including Guys and Dolls and It Shoulda Been You. The list goes on but, of course, it all came back to The Phantom of the Opera. Boggess played the role of Christine quite a number of times and entertained us with a Vegas version of “Think of Me” (Andrew Lloyd Webber/Charles Hart) combined with equal portions of the French and the original English lyrics.

The biggest surprise of the show might have been how funny Boggess can be, and so easily. She also chose “Twisted Every Way” and “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” from Phantom, only choosing multiple songs from two other shows—Mary Poppins and The Secret Garden.

Joining the accomplished singer, in addition to Hertz, was her sister, Summer Boggess, on the cello.

Sierra Boggess returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below often, and she should be near the top of anyone’s list for entertainment.
