…”Performances by Dave Halston as Frank Sinatra and Suzanne Goulet as Liza Minnelli topped the charts with perfect interpretations during their recent concert at the Hot Springs Village Coronado Community Theatre.
Halston and Goulet not only brought a vast and entertaining repertoire but engaged the audience with personal touches only dedicated artistes share.
Goulet didn’t waltz onstage, but entered through the audience singing and greeting her fans as would Minnelli. Dancing since she was 3, Goulet didn’t waste any time showing her expertise in replicating Minnelli’s gestures and choreography from “Cabaret,” but also singing with a wide vibrato for which Minnelli was also known.
If Frank Sinatra’s wife, Barbara, chose Dave Halston as the person who mirrored the sound of her late husband, then it was no surprise to the HSV audience as Halston began his first set, it was if though Ol’ Blue Eyes was crooning just for them. Even Halston’s interpretation of Sinatra’s off-the-cuff jokes were textbook. Halston’s relaxed Sinatra-style, was flawless.
Impeccable interpretation by the performers along with audience contribution rounded out a delightful, relaxing and thoroughly entertaining evening.”
