Those Who Can, Duet

Those Who Can, Duet

With Tim Evanicki and Pricilla Bagley

Musical Direction by Chris Leavy

Winter Park Playhouse, Winter Park FL</strong>

This is the first time I’ve ever been intimidated by a pair of cabaret singers. Ms. Bagley and Mr. Evaninki are not only accomplished singers, renowned vocal teachers and great people all around; they can move some serious air. Sure, there were microphones, but they were more hand props than anything needed to improve the acoustics of this packed little room. They opened with a sweet duet in English (Bagley) and Italian (Evanicki), it felt like church. I was fortunate enough to sit on the couch near the piano; it almost felt if I was invading their personal space. Heck, Ms Bagley nearly sat on my lap for one of Evanicki’s solos. The theme tonight was 1980s musicals. We experience “Memories” from “Cats”, a tune from “Miss Saigon,” and a heart stopping “Music of the Night” from Phantom. Evanicki declared that that was the Webber song he now wants people to beg him to sing. I say we pelt them both with flowers until they sing for us again. If anything, this show was too big for this space, and sitting in the front row was an awesome experience that will mark me for life. Bravo!
