MAC, Bistro and Nightlife Award winning vocalist Karen Oberlin returned to Feinstein's for a week-long engagement with "I'll Be Hard to Handle: Songs of Daring Dames." Ms Oberlin has created an adventurous new show that explores feminine courage in all its forms: Songs by bold women writers, songs about dauntless women, and songs written on audacious subjects showing, in words and music, just how brave and brazen women can be. Songwriters include the inimitable Bessie Smith and her peers, Joni Mitchell, Dorothy Fields, Rodgers and Hart, Pink, and many more. In this groundbreaking new show, Ms. Oberlin proved once and for all why we're happy the lady is indeed, and proudly, a tramp - not too many "daring dame" performers can rock hot-pants and perform a headstand to an audience which included the legendary Gloria Steinem! Jon Weber served as musical director and pianist, with Tom Hubbard on bass.
