Emptying the notebook on A&E news:

— The Cabaret has extended its stay at its temporary home at Indiana Landmarks Center while it solidifies plans for its own building. The summer/fall lineup includes "In the Heights" star Mandy Gonzales (who will also be keynoting the annual Start with Art luncheon while she's in town), Will Swensen (currently on Broadway in "Waitress") with radio host and musical theater know-it-all Seth Rudetsky, the "Side Show" duo Alice Ripley and Emily Skinner, and the return of Jane Lynch.

LaChanze, the Tony-winning star of Broadway’s “The Color Purple,” brought a jazzy set to the Cabaret’s temporary home at the Indiana Landmarks Center on May 5. She explained that her offering was a sampling of three distinct cabaret programs she has created and the result, while musically outstanding, was structurally disjointed.

Still, when a tribute to Diane Ross includes the unexpected inclusion of “Be a Lion” (from “The Wiz”) and “It’s My Turn,” it’s clear that LaChanze isn’t following anyone else’s rulebook. Other highlights included songs from both “The Color Purple” and the actress’ breakthrough “Once On This Island” as well as a bring-down-the-house closer to Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”

I have to take break from writing about Italy to return to my favorite topic of late. Of course, the Cabaret. It’s time to close out the Winter-Spring season with a tour de force performance from LaChanze.
