When a Man Loves a Diva
You'll laugh, you'll cheer, you'll scratch your head at improper pronoun usage. This show of classic ballads and power anthems from the likes of Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, and Barbara Streisand is sung with style and substance by three skilled performers. Dane Stauffer is at his playful best, Ben Bakken busts some great moves, and Julius C. Collins III, best known as the lead singer for Greazy Meal and Doctor Mambo's Combo, booms with the best of them. Highlights include Bakken's energetic rendition of Melissa Etheridge's "Come to My Window," Stauffer's kitschy audience banter, and Collins's soulful stylings on Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Musical director Sanford Moore, founder of Moore By Four, accompanies on piano. There are just four more shows.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: March 19. Continues through April 12, 2009
