In January of 2019, the world lost who the New York Times referred to as “the last of the great vaudevillians”, Kaye Ballard. Her work lives on in Gretchen Reinhagen's multi-award-winning tribute to the late Ms. Ballard. The show, created in 2009 with Director Barry Kleinbort and Music Director David Gaines, celebrates the 7+ decade career of Ms. Ballard with songs from her many Broadway and Pre-Broadway Shows, songs from her long performing career, and songs from her legendary night club acts, including Ms. Ballard’s well-known special material. Just before the Pandemic began, Reinhagen wowed the crowds at the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention with a tour-de-force performance of “Maybe This Time”, written specifically for Kaye Ballard, and the heart-breaking story around the song. Don’t miss an opportunity to see the show that critics called a “triumph” and that won Reinhagen the coveted Triple Crown of Cabaret Awards.
