Did You Forget the Singer?

Well, you won't forget her songs

While the guardians of the radio airwaves debate the content of Britney Spears' new "song," they ignore the most offensive element of the matter: It's a facile jumble anchored by a terrible vocal performance. If you want to hear a song breathe, if you long to hear a song dance — if you are pining to hear a song actually sung and not dribbled out like baby's pabulum, here's your chance. Cabaret St. Louis presents Liz Callaway with accompanist Alex Rybeck at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday (February 5 and 6) at the Sheldon Concert Hall (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-534-1111 or www.thesheldon.org). Known for her skill as a Sondheim interpreter and her graceful delivery of the music's nuances, Callaway can also crescendo the big moments and make them feel intimate. Tickets are $40.
