YANNA AVIS is Again Beguiling and Enticing as She Makes Some Sensual Musical Magic at 54 Below
By John Hoglund, Broadwayworld (July 7, 2015)
Cabaret is a tricky balance. For some, it is a joie de vivre experience defined as the pleasure felt when having a good time. Enter the beguiling Yanna Avis. Since her cabaret debut at Eighty Eight’s in 1992, Avis has played every major room in New York and has become one of the most popular international artists, with a fan base that continues to grow. With her new show at 54 Below (on June 18), Make Some Magic, Avis demonstrated why she is so unique and renowned for classy interpretations of songs from the 1930s to 1940s. Singing in German, Spanish, English and French, Avis sauntered through an hour of what she called “my cabaret,” which included her old-world deconstruction of seductive songs recalling an intimate boite style made famous by legendary divas famed for erudite and sexy ditties from a world we’ll never see again. They are as varied as the French actress/singer Jeanne Moreau to Germany’s Marlene Dietrich, who became famous for seducing audiences. Ms. Avis emanates them as she carries a similar torch.
