Love and Marriage

Love and Marriage
With Kelly Morris Rowan
Musical Direction by Chris Levey
Spotlight Cabaret Series
Winter Park Playhouse
Winter Park, FL

I can tell we’re in for an evening of elegance as Ms. Rowan enters in a blue evening gown dripping with a formal style we rarely see today. Her theme is “Love and Marriage.” Tonight’s program recounts her courtship and marriage starting at a Pennsylvania Renfair gig. Here are some prime picks: “And Then He Kissed Me,” “Old Fashioned Wedding,” and “I Chose Right.” You get the idea. Stories about pets and counselors filling between songs, and Ms. Rowan takes some time to sing a duet with Maestro Chris Leavy. You can always count on an encore here at the Winter Park Playhouse, and the ending is telegraphed by a rather down tempo mashup of “Too Late Now” and “Our Love is Here to Stay.” We won’t go home without a rousing close, and that comes from the swinging “Glory of Love.” An ovation, a trip to settle a bar tab, and we leave with romance in our hearts. Romance – I’m so glad she’s enjoying it…
