Don’t Tell Mama set the stage for Lane Bradbury, Broadway’s original “Dainty June” to entertain audiences. The intimate venue was enhanced by Joe Goodrich’s accompaniment and Doug DeVita’s writing, expertly weaving Bradbury’s past to complement the score.
The set list included songs from Henri Betti/ Andre Hornez, Cole Porter. Stephen Sondheim/ Jule Styne, Cole Porter and Stephen Schwartz/ Frederic Lowe. Under Elkin Antoniou’s direction, guests were brought back in time where Ethel Merman stormed the stage and Lane was an ingenue, making her first Broadway foray.
Sprinkling in humorous stories from the stage and screen, Bradbury dazzles audiences with her sunny disposition, endearing smile and enduring talent. For “Some People” who missed June 7th’s performance, there’s a final one on June 29th. While “Dainty June” has hung up her batons, Lane Bradbury steps into the limelight, showcasing that it’s Lane’s turn.
