Home(sick) for the Holidays
Rick Jensen, Music Director
Thursday, December 28 at 8:00pm
Katie McGrath shares the conflict of loving life in Manhattan but missing her St. Louis family, friends, landmarks and holiday traditions, including her indoor caroling party of 20 years. She tells her story using songs from the Great American Songbook, pop, rock and Christmas hymnals. Merry Keller and Bob Becherer are her special guests. All proceeds will be donated to the St. Louis difference-making non-profit Pianos for People.
"Katie McGrath has pursued, captured, and pretty much perfected cabaret performance." Gerry Geddes, Bistro Awards
"A perfect blend of laughter and tears delivered by a singer who is now a master of her art...powerfully genuine stage presence...her singing had the immediacy and emotional truth that is at the heart of cabaret performance." - Chuck Lavazzi, Cabaret Scenes
"McGrath is genuine, engaging, comedic, sings from the heart and cherishes the lyric! What a pure pleasure to have been in the same room with Katie, whose NYC debut was as good as they come!"- Scott Barbarino, NitelifeExchange
“When was the last time you saw a gal walk into a room looking like a fashion model (Cheryl Tiegs in the day); then sing like an angel and deliver one-liners like a stand-up comic?” Sue Matsuki, Cabaret Hotspot
