Cabaret at the Colony

The personal website of Baby Jane Dexter compares her new CD, You’re Following Me, with Judy Garland’s 1961 live album from Carnegie Hall. Given that Garland is one of the 20th century’s most recognized voices, and Dexter doesn’t yet have a Wikipedia entry to her name, the comparison is more self-aggrandizing than accurate. Nevertheless, with Garland dead and her daughter in a shambles, Dexter may indeed be the next best thing in cabaret. The New York Times praises her “formidable voice” and her obvious Earth-Mother vibes. Tonight, she’s performing in the Royal Room of the Colony Hotel (155 Hammon Avenue, Palm Beach) in promotion of the aforementioned CD. Tickets cost $90 with dinner, or $50 with cover and a $15 drink minimum. For more info, call 561-655-5430, or visit www.thecolonypalmbeach.com.
