Revival of Yip! Yip! Yaphank! Opens Tonight

All you Irving Berlin lovers out there may want to come by Follen Church in Lexington, MA tonight to see the first revival of Berlin's 1918 musical Yip! Yip! Yaphank! Yes, there are 3 exclamations! And yes, you will be able to see me in a tacky blonde wig with a little blue bow for 2 of the numbers. You'll also get to hear me sing a charming little song called "I Can Always Find a Little Sunshine in the YMCA". Yep, the Village People were not the first to sing about the "Y". There are also some more familiar songs like  "Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning" & "Mandy" (no, Barry Manilow was also NOT the first person to sing about someone named "Mandy"). The second and final performance of the show will be at Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA on Sunday afternoon. More info here: and here: 617-254-1125.
