For this Sunday’s gathering, the theme is MAGIC and we have a magical line-up of performers and artists. Our musical guests are a magical married couple–Vanessa Claire Stewart and French Stewart. They’ll be doing a number from Vanessa’s award winning show about Keely Smith and Louis Prima. I’m delighted that her hubby, French, will be joining her–French is a beloved fixture of the LA theater scene (Pot Mom, Stoneface, Voice Lessons, etc) and has appeared on all kinds of TV and film, including the classic TV sitcom: Third Rock from the Sun. Join us Sunday for a taste of old school Vegas entertainment in the charming guise of French and Vanessa–Sunday, October 16th at 12noon at Bootleg Theater.
