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.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Eugenie Bondurant.
Her career began gracing the runways; from New York to Paris and has now landed the fan favorite featured role ‘Tigris’ in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
At 6’-1”, with knife-blade cheekbones, Bondurant, was “discovered” after a bout with cancer left her looking especially exotic and androgynous. She was soon a working model in the U.S. and Europe. During her career as a model, she was promoted by her agents as androgynous which then followed her into her acting career. She’s played male transvestites, a bio-mechanical warriors, Dominatrix, to a quirky unemployed rodent lover. She created a string of bizarre characters in TV and film – including Fight Club (with Ed Norton), Saturday Night Live(with Madonna and Mike Myers). She tossed around comedian Gene Wilder while playing Alice Cooper’s favorite Dominatrix on the TV series Something Wilder. And on HBO’s Arliss, she played a transvestite who lured a strait-laced athlete into a night of sin. In the indie feature, Donald and Dot Clock, her character bonded with a house-full of rodents.
She is also a cabaret singer, appearing in the American Songbook Series with Paul Wilborn and Blue Roses and a founder of The Radio Theater Project (www.radiotheater.org).
A well-known On-Camera and Meisner acting coach, Bondurant, is a staff member at the prestigious Patel Conservatory in Tampa, Fl.
Next up in my series of conversations with cabaret and pop musicians is Gretchen Reinhagen. Gretchen is a multi-award winning artist, receiving the coveted TRIPLE CROWN of cabaret awards in 2010: the Nightlife Award, Bistro Award and MAC Award - for her show “Special Kaye: A Tribute to the Incomparable Kaye Ballard” directed by Barry Kleinbort, with Musical Director David Gaines. Gretchen has worked with some of the biggest names in cabaret including Steve Ross and Karen Mason. Her shows cover a broad range of material from Musical Comedy to Blues and Rock. Former Back Stage and Citysearch critic Roy Sander said, “Gretchen Reinhagen's shows are marked by intelligence, warmth, a lovely spirit of benevolence, and fine vocals. It is always a pleasure to spend an hour in her company.”
As both a singer and an actress, she's performed in a broad range of theaters and concert halls from the House of Blues in New Orleans to the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her professional theater credits include Janis Joplin in Beehive, Louise Segar in Always Patsy Cline, Domina in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the lead role of the therapist in the premiere of Mother Me Therapy at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York, and the Queen Mother in the European premiere of Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
At her recent show at the Metropolitan Room in Manhattan, I was struck by her ability to take on songs that are so strongly identified with other performers -- singing a "Streisand song" or a "Fanny Bryce" song, for example -- and show them from an altogether different perspective. We'll talk about her inspirations for her art, how she approaches a lyric, and get some insight into the world of cabaret.
