Versatile singer-actress Avery Sommers has appeared in Broadway productions of musicals like Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Showboat, but her home remains South Florida. She’s been a linchpin of the tri-county theater for decades, usually in Palm Beach County: She first appeared at West Palm Beach’s Kravis Center nearly 20 years ago in a production of Chicago, and her cabaret sets have delighted audiences at Maltz Jupiter Theatre and Palm Beach’s Colony Theater, where she’s enjoyed frequent bookings since 2008. Most recently, she portrayed pioneering blues siren Bessie Smith at Arts Garage’s sensational musical The Devil’s Music in Delray Beach, allowing audiences to discover the vulnerability behind the boisterous, brassy star. It’s about time she commuted south, and the Tennis Club’s monthly Cabaret du Jour series has offered her just the opportunity. With accompanist Phil Hinton tinkling the ivories, Sommers will perform a cabaret set of her favorite soul, pop and musical-theater traditions: “Feeling Good,” “Without a Song,” “Just One of the Those Things” and the tune that gives this performance its name, “I Love Being Here With You.” We think the feeling will be mutual. Check out her set at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Tennis Club, located at 600 Tennis Club Dr. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $20 with a two-drink minimum.
