Ute Lemper reigns at Joe's Pub
Ute Lemper, the German chanteuse, delivered an over-the-top performance at Joe's Pub last night. It didn't matter which language she chose to sing, she was fabulous. Her cabaret show, entitled Pirate Jenny, lasted almost two hours, and she entertained us with a stream of songs and stories. I think that she had only one glass of water during that entire time. If you love cabaret, you'll love Lemper.
