A Carol from the Harry Shearer and Judith Owen Singalong
There was a warm communal vibe at Harry Shearer and Judith Owen's singalong December 5th. It was held in the Steve Allen Theater, which is small and homey enough to remind you of being in a high school auditorium. In fact, it was almost like being at your kid's high school holiday chorale -- if your kids were all over 40 and went to the most awesome high school ever.
The first half of the evening was more concert than singalong. Judith Owen is an entertainer with a sharp wit and impressive vibrato. Christopher Guest was unable to make it, so she stepped in with a jazzy if tongue-in-cheek version of "Christmas with the Devil."
