Smash star – Megan Hilty…

… will swing with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center on November 23-24 in a show titled Luck Be a Lady: Megan Hilty Sings Sinatra and More (NSO event link). 

Apparently Seth MacFarlane was set for shows on those days but had to cancel out … I really like Seth and his foray into the American songbook, but Megan is a fabulous singer and MUCH easier on the eyes!

In addition to paying tribute to the music of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack (Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr.), Hilty — former Broadway musical star from Wicked, 9 to 5 and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes — will perform from the catalog of Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James. Wow … what a show.

Man this sounds like a kick…

After seeing a superb concert with Natalie Cole and the Austin Symphony Orchestra earlier this year, I really wish I had room in the VS schedule to dial in Megan’s Luck Be a Lady event. But with the late notice … I don’t think I can make it happen.

Bad for me … but good for you if you’re able to be in the D.C. area leading up to Thanksgiving time. With tickets very reasonably priced in the $20 – $85 range this looks like not only a great event, but a steal as well. GO!
