Dear Friends,

Won’t you join me for an evening of delightful Gershwin melodies and delicious cuisine? I will be singing the special songs of George Gershwin in my cabaret show “by George”, accompanied by the terrific pianist, Regan Ryzuk, on the following Thursdays:

October 22
November 19
December 3

at Sesame, 398 Bloomfield Ave., Montclair, NJ (the Wellmont Theatre building). The show is at 8pm with dinner seatings beginning at 6:30pm.

George Gershwin epitomized the Jazz Age. With his brother and collaborator, Ira, he wrote songs known the world over, such as “Embraceable You”, “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”, and “The Man I Love”. Here’s what critics have said about this Gershwin show:

“…When she performs…’How Long Has This Been Going On?” or “Someone To Watch Over Me,” then you get the opportunity to savor the depth and range of this talented lady’s voice. McCarthy and Gershwin…make a pleasing partnership” — Laurie Lawson,

“McCarthy delivered a slow, dreamy ‘S’Wonderful’. She approached her songs with an elegant flair…” — Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes

For reservations call 973-746-2553. Sesame is a BYO and there is a $15 cover.

I look forward to seeing you!
