Cathy Sings! (Jerry Herman, no less)


Such exciting news, friends.  Cathy -- fashion model and my beloved identical cousin -- is adding professional singer to her list of accomplishments!

It's all very hush-hush right now, but songbird Cathy is deep in rehearsals for a musical show which she'll be performing before a live audience this coming fall!  Cathy plays a character considerably older than she actually is (with much bigger hair), but my cousin can find the truth in any role and I think you'll agree she pulls it off.

Cathy looks sporty in houndstooth double knit blazer, silk scarf, and jazz pants.

I managed to sneak into rehearsals today and take this behind-the-scenes movie, which I do hope you'll enjoy.  It's all very informal -- Cathy doesn't even have her lashes on-- but I think it will give you a taste of what's in store.

Could a show tune album be in the offing?  Who knows!

Happy Sunday, everybody!

  3. If Cathy listens to you, you could see if she'd consider blonder hair. I think she'd look cute. Cuter, that is.

  7. OMG I just sprayed a mojito all over my computer screen laughing! You GO Cathy. BTW I'm in awe of how much mileage you get out of your separates. One day a hip retro chic, the next day a budding star.

  18. If this dame can tap-dance too, then I need her in my new show. The leading lady broke a leg, and I was going to send out the youngster Sawyer to come back a star but heck, Cathy’s not a star she’s a whole constellation! Tell her to call Julian Marsh producer 42nd street soonest!

  19. Yes, yes, she can tap dance -- and roller skate!

  20. ...Ah, but can Cathy swim like Esther Williams?
    (I'm betting Cathy has one of those form fitting, lift-and-separate one piece suits tucked away in her closet for when she visits warmer climes. OK, Coney Island)
