Timing is everything.
That’s what they say, isn’t it? It’s all in the timing? Well, Hannah Jane Peterson could not have timed her latest show in the Birdland Theater more perfectly. Her new act coinciding with the recent release of the children’s picture book A IS FOR AUDRA (which probably populates more childless homes, if one gives the matter some serious thought), Ms. Peterson found a valuable tool in the slim volume and an inspired idea for a musical cabaret. THE LEADING LADIES OF BROADWAY (in some advertising trimmed to just LEADING LADIES) is Hannah Jane Peterson’s living, breathing, three-dimensional representation of the book A Is For Audra, and it is one of the most exciting nights of cabaret a music lover or musical theater aficionado is going to find on the boards.
