Although not a Holiday song, she said it is heard widely at this time of the year, from Julie Andrews “My Favorite Things. She dived into a medley of famous divas, some not singers, performing “Santa Baby” including Joan Crawford, Carol Channing and Eartha Kitt, but her take on Cher is not up to her standards. For gays, Judy at Carnegie Hall album by Judy Garland was the Holiday treat desired while trimming the Christmas tree. Sutton Lee gave the listeners “Get Happy”, “The Trolley Song” and “The Man That Got Away”. She asked the crowd which Judy song was missing and of course, it was “Over The Rainbow”. All in the Holiday Spirit.
She wished to showcase her choreography but she said the audience must use their imagination. Splits went halfway down, kicks as high as her shins, much hand-waving and more. Some people may have felt it was the best dancing ever. Sutton Lee has certainly stuffed the stockings by the chimney with care and mistletoe dangled overhead. Two hapless couples were pulled from the rows to the stage and they performed a humorous lip sync of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. Jovial as Santa.
Sutton Lee chatted about two famous musical films both written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman and then sang from the landmark “Little Shop of Horrors”: “Somewhere That’s Green” with a mashup of “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid”. At long last, Sutton Lee sang her namesake “Suddenly Seymour” from the former play and the crowd burst into a near-frenzy in their joy but also regret that the evening was coming to a fabulous end. The holidays will never be the same.
Then our lady presented for her Jewish friends, Barbra Streisand was called to wish Happy Hanukkah by rocking through a fun “Jingle Bells”. Sutton Lee Seymour’s wildly funny Holiday show Stocking Stuffer is ending as we approach January and she has a new tuneful presentation designed and ready to premiere on January 7.
Here is her release notice about this new winter season show:
Sutton Lee Seymour’s BOOBY TUNES is a campy concert at Carnegie Hall…in Mexico!
Sutton Lee has always been inspired by the comedy and chaos of classic cartoons… always with a flair for the dramatic, she’s clever like Bugs Bunny, zany like Daffy Duck, a stinker like Tweety, and a hopeless romantic like Pepe Le Pew… Sutton Lee Seymour always has a trick or two up her sleeve and strives to be a force of positivity while trying to survive the day. Backed up by a live band with Mark Hartman as Music Director, Sutton Lee Seymour sings a combination of modern-day hits, classic jazz standards, and show tunes with comedic twists, celebrity impersonations, and her thrilling live vocals! Sutton Lee Seymour’s BOOBY TUNES performs at 9:30 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays at The Palm Cabaret.
20th Anniversary Season
