"Diva's Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part)" at the Algonquin Salon January 11, 2009

Oh man, I had such fun at the Algonquin Salon on the 11th. The theme was "Drop that Name," meaning any song that had someone's name in the title, or mentioned. I chose a character that sometimes has a name ("Nimue") but often does not ("The Lady of the Lake") and sang the song "Diva's Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part?)," a DIVA song if there EVER was one from the Monty Python musical "Spamalot." If there was a role written for me, this is it!

As is the nature of the Algonquin Salon, music does not have to be memorized - so I brought up the lyrics on my iPhone and "scrolled" along as I sang. It was so much fun...Mark Janas was absolutely brilliant on the piano, and the crowd had fun as well.
