Theater 2020 Gala Sparkles

Theater 2020’s “Spring Fever” gala Sunday afternoon at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, emceed by the Theater’s founders, Brooklyn Heights residents David Fuller and Judith Jarosz, presented a stellar program of music by various artists. Among the highlights were Cristiane Young’s renditions of Offenbach, Meilhac and Halevy’s “The Drunk Song” and Cole Porter’s “Begin the Beguine”; Greg Horton’s of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Nightmare Song” from Iolanthe and his duet with Roxann Kraemer on “Zing a Little Zong” by Brooklyn Heights native Harry Warren and Leo Robin; Matt Castle (photo) singing Stephen Sondheim’s “Being Alive” from Company; and Lorinda Lisitza’s delightful and hilarious version of “Yolanda at the Bottom of the Stairs” by Joe Iconis and Robert Maddock (video, from another performance by Ms. Lisitza, after the jump).

Among those in the audience were City Council Member Stephen Levin, who took the mike briefly to praise David and Judith for their new venture, and the recently installed Priest in Charge of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity, the Rev. John Denaro.

    Wish I could have been there (Brooklyn too far with MS), but it looks terrific. Good luck with everything.

    A truly grand time was had by all — thanks to our wonderful artists and thanks to a very supportive audience! A special shout out to all our BH neighbors who attended! Stay tuned for our first production, Romeo & Juliet, in early summer.
