A Dyke About Town: Ain't Misbehavin' a lot of fun

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Imagination Theater
Mercy and Cuteness enjoyed Imagination Theater, the taping of Harry Nile and Sherlock Holmes mysteries at Kirkland Performance Theater, November 21 for KIXI radio station. The scripts by M. G. Elliott, A Secret Mission and The Three Deaths of Erasmus Crowe, were good additions to the genre.

Mercy liked to listen to the pleasing radio voice of director Jim French. Jay Green was convincing as Harry Niles and Dr. Watson. John Patrick Lowrie really sounded like Holmes. He has been the longest-running radio actor in that role. Lowrie's wife, Ellen McLain, was spooky as Mrs. Warrenden. John announced proudly that Ellen has been nominated for the best female voice in a video game for her portrayal of the evil computer GLaDOS in Portal 2. It was fun to watch the sound effects being done by Frank Rosin and Curtis Takehashi.

Ain't Misbehavin'
Mercy ate up the Tony Award-winning musical from New York City at Jazz Alley, November 22. The voices of Curtis Farrow, Vivian Jett, Ron Lucas, Famecia Ward, and Dawn Driver were luscious, and their harmonies were tight. Darius Frowner's keyboards were delicious. Drums by Milo Peterson were driving. Larry Holloway's bass was funky.

It was a night of Fats Waller swing tunes. The upbeat title song opened. 'Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do,' a song associated with Billie Holiday, followed. 'Honeysuckle Rose' was a sweet slow down.

'Handful of Keys' picked up the pace. 'I've Got a Feeling I'm Falling' was slow and soulful. 'How Ya Baby,' 'Jitterbug Waltz,' 'The Ladies Who Sing With the Band' and 'Yacht Club Swing' returned to the fast speed.

'When the Nylons Bloom Again' was slow and slinky. 'Cash for Your Trash' and 'Off Time' went back to the upbeat. 'The Joint is Jumpin' was one of Fats Waller's most famous songs. 'Entr'acte,' 'Spreadin' the Rhythm Around,' and 'Lounging at the Waldorf' were also fast. 'The Viper's Drag' was a slow change of pace. 'Mean to Me' was another song associated with Billie Holiday. 'Your Feets Too Big' and 'That Ain't Right' picked it up again.

'Keepin' Out of Mischief Now' was slow and romantic. 'Find Out What They Like' and 'Fat and Greasy' returned to the upbeat. The singers dedicated the soulful 'Black and Blue' to Lena Horne and Joe Frazer. Two of Waller's most well-known songs, 'I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter,' 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love' and 'It's a Sin to Tell a Lie' closed well.

Cris Williamson and Friends
Mercy and Cuteness are very much looking forward to Cris Williamson's annual Christmas concert at the Triple Door on December 11. Her performance traditionally includes some very amazing musicians. This year, members of Seattle Women's Chorus (SWC) will be part of the show. Mercy liked the compromise last year, where she got a chance to hear the whole SWC at Christmas as part of Williamson's concert, even though SWC has stopped doing their own Christmas event.

With her distinctive voice, Cris has been a pioneer as an independent Lesbian singer songwriter since the '70s. Her woman-owned record company was the first.

You can get your tickets at thetripledoor.net.
