Next up in my Cabaret Performers Series is Sally Darling. Sally Darling's background in theater and related areas is rich and varied: actress, director, coach, narrator, cabaret performer. Her first professional role as an actress was 'Anna' in "The King and I" with Leonard Graves. (As Yul Brynner’s understudy, Graves played the King over a thousand times on Broadway.) She has since performed with Barry Manilow, James MacArthur, David Carradine, Katharine Houghton, Sarah Rice, Hal Linden...... She has staged operas, narrated with symphony orchestras, and directed everything from Thurber to Shakespeare. In the 70s she created and staged three revues of the music of Noël Coward and Cole Porter, then created a fourth for the Theater Guild which she tailored for Patricia Morrison, Larry Kert, Dick Shawn and Tony Tanner. As a narrator for The Talking Book program of The Library of Congress and for Recorded Books, Sally has over 250 fiction and non-fiction books on tape, including "To Kill a Mockingbird" for Recorded Books, for which she was chosen over more than 100 applicants. She has won awards for her compelling voice and her unmatched interpretive skills.
Sally returns to Don't Tell Mama with “Perspectives”, the latest in her acclaimed signature series of themed programs. She will be accompanied as usual by her Musical Director, the extraordinary Matthew Martin Ward. The series began with "Choices", then it examined "The Way We Are" before exploring "Matters of the Heart". In "Perspectives" she invites us through songs and text to be aware of how we see things, how each of us has a particular, individual point of view which determines what we receive.

My guest tonight in my Cabaret Series is Yvonne Constant. Yvonne Constant began her career as a ballet dancer, but because of her comedic flair and charismatic personality, the other dancers urged her to become a musical comedy performer instead. Yvonne was cast to play multiple roles for the Broadway production of "La Plume de Ma Tante" and won a Tony award. When she did "The Gay Life" with Barbara Cook, Yvonne received a New York Drama Critics Citation as on of the season's Most Promising Actresses. Yvonne was chosen by Richard Rodgers for a principal role in "No Strings," "She had 45 appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."
In addition, she has narrated or dubbed over 20 French movies including the much acclaimed, "Parfait", and was also the voice of Simone de Bauvoir. In 2007, Yvonne was one of the stars in the City Center rival of "Follies" in New York. She received 14 rave reviews for her rendition of "Ah, Paris!"
Yvonne's memorable one woman show, "Yvonne Constant Sings Yves Montand" was standing room only in theatres and concert halls in New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
In recent years Yvonne has performed in several cabaret venues in the New York Metropolitan area including The Reprise Room, Danny's Skylight Room, The National Arts Club and the critically acclaimed Metropolitan Room where she appears regularly always with constantly updated shows. For many years her shows have been presented by Cabaret Legend Jan Wallman and her music director since 2006 has been the multi faceted Russ Kassoff. Yvonne is playing the Metropolitan Room the day after this podcast airs live, on November 17, 2015.
