Sorry for the short notice on this y'all. The *real* Karen Black (she of Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean; House of 1000 Corpses; Burnt Offerings; not to mention Gypsy 83 and 120 other films)is in town doing a little cabaret act at the tiniesy theatre in Hell's Kitchen. S'tan and I caught the show Saturday night and she blew our socks off. It's an odd mish mosh of vignettes, very method character studies. Total freakshow. Only 15 bucks, and tonight is the last night.

Perfection! The double whammy of her incredible range, and the impeccable acting just left one gasping. She sent you through every emotional permutation. Courageous, tragic, bawdy, innocent ... she transmuted her flesh minute by minute ... (and may I add... she's a walking, romping, stomping ad for NOT having surgery.) And can she ever sing... beautiful!!!! And when it was all over, utterly gracious and friendly, saying Hi there to every fan who came up to her, knocking us over again with the charisma. I got her autograph! Too bad people missed it... it was too short a venue, really. We were ready to go back the next day, except she plumb wore us out.
