MIDDLEBURY-Performer Sarah Stone presents a zany evening of musical comedy in her latest show, "Laverne DeVoe: Isn't She Dead?" Written and performed by Stone, this funny and sometimes touching musical revue features well-known jazz, blues and show-tune favorites from Steven Sondheim, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington and more.
Forced to revive her never really existent career, fictional songstress and screen siren Laverne DeVoe and her faithful accompanist, Frederick (played with priceless irreverence by local jazz piano great, Fred Barnes), strike out on their national come-back tour.
The Town Hall Theater Cabaret is an intimate event. Shows are presented in the Byers Studio on the lower level, with patrons sipping wine at candlelit tables. The atmosphere is designed to be like a New York club.
"Laverne DeVoe..." makes its debut in the Town Hall Theater Cabaret on Thursday, April 21, at 7 pm. Tickets are $10, and may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, 802 382-9222, at the THT Box Office (Monday-Saturday, noon-5 p.m.) and at the door.
