The Lineup with Susie Mosher

Birdland Theater, NYC, April 9, 2019

Susie Mosher

If you are looking to have a fun time in a cabaret setting, watch for the next edition of The Lineup with Susie Mosher. Mosher (pictured) brings together a different cast of very talented singers and comedians for each show hosted by the very lively and cheerful Mosher herself. From the moment the fast and funny Mosher appears on stage, singing her opening number, you can sense that you are in for a very enjoyable show. This edition featured some very funny comedians, a country singer, blues, a violin solo, songs from the Great American Songbook, and even a love song to a cigarette.

Mosher’s opening number had her adlibbing lyrics directed at almost every individual in the audience.

Juliane Godfrey accompanied herself on guitar and also whistled through her composition, “Dear Heart.” Sarah Rice showed off her amazing soprano voice, while smoking a cigarette (not a real one) in her performance of a song from 1918, “Love’s Cigarette.

” Brenda O’Brien was moving in a song that paid tribute to her late father. “Gates on the Grove,” ending with a few bars of “Danny Boy.” Comedian Erin Maguire made me laugh when she described her performing in Vermont, “where diverse means white people of different heights.” Aaron Weinstein’s always hilarious dead pan humor, preceded his exciting violin solo on “I Want to Be Happy,” backed by Jon Weber on piano.

Dan Finnerty hilariously used the melody of “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables to describe members of the audience. Tony winner Alice Ripley beautifully performed Leon Russell’s “A Song for You.” Music director Brad Simmons accompanied himself on piano for his own composition, “Our House.

” Mosher saved the best for last, as the very animated Arbender Robinson had the audience cheering his “Low Down Blues.

” Mosher, an excellent vocalist in her own right, closed the show with “Time After Time.”
