Adam's Call: Luann de Lesseps: #CountessandFriends at Feinstein's/54 Below
“Money can’t buy you class,” but it can get you a ticket to Luann de Lesseps cabaret show #CountessandFriends at Feinstein’s/54 Below, a very fun evening of songs, stories, and fashion. This was my second time seeing Luann’s sold-out show and it continues to be an evening of entertainment!
Directed by Ben Rimalower, Luann takes the audience through various adventures in her life including some great tales about The Real Housewives of New York City. Billy Stritch has done a wonderful job musically directing Luann’s cabaret show. He has crafted each song to perfectly fit her vocal range. In addition to Luann’s three dance singles, “Chic C’est La Vie,” “Girl Code,” and “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” Luann performs a variety of popular songs throughout the evening.
Tonight, Luann treated us to a very sultry version of “Fever,” which reminded me a bit of Madonna’s 1993 performance on The Arsenio Hall Show. I also enjoyed Luann’s take on “Diamond’s Are A Girl’s Best Friend” & Bonnie Raitt’s “Something To Talk About.”
Luann knows how to command a room and keep a show flowing. Interspersed throughout the night are some very special guests. Tonight we saw downtown favorite Murray Hill, who’s impeccable comedic timing cracked up the audience! Broadway’s Brent Heuser enchanted us to “Sunrise” and a group sing-a-long to Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
If you love Luann on The Real Housewives of New York City you will love her even more in concert! She really knows how to put on a show!
