Debbie's Back in Town...
...at the Cafe Carlyle. Her official website lists a "dancer" (yes, singular) among her accompanists, which gives us the slightly foolish hope that, when we see her on June 13, the Unsinkable Debbie Reynolds will be recreating her nightclub act, circa 1966.
Barring that, perhaps Miss Reynolds will persuade her bosom buddy Raquel Welch to share the stage for an impromptu Woman of the Year - Victor/Victoria medley.
Whatever the case may be, of this much we can be certain: Miss Reynolds will give her all to entertain us. Although, despite the lingering M-G-M stardust, there will still be the bittersweet sadness which now follows us whenever we now return to the Carlyle, realizing that its most fabulous occupant is well and truly gone.
