Opening Weekend begins Friday, May 22 with Barry Lloyd in BARRY LLOYD LIVE!
The patrons will experience, as dubbed by the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco's Crown Prince of Cabaret. Mr. Lloyd is appearing in San Jose one night only and will treat the audience to a collection of songs spanning his career - including favorite songs from past shows as well as a handful of songs he has never performed before. He'll be singing songs from his MAC Award nominated CD, BARRY LLOYD LIVE!
Mr. Lloyd moved to San Jose with his family from San Francisco when he was a mere lad of 8. His mother was active in the local San Jose theatre scene and everyone knew the theatre diva - Lila Lloyd. Mr. Lloyd appeared in many shows beside his mother as a child and continued as a young man to play piano for local productions. Upon completing High School Mr. Lloyd returned to live in San Francisco.
"Barry Lloyd, with fingers flying at the piano and singing with his distinctive modulated baritone voice, brought back those wonderful golden days at the Blue Angel in New York during the middle '50s. . . . His phrasing of each song is impeccable. There is the sophistication of a Bobby Short about him. Sometimes in some of the comedy songs, I could hear Noel Coward sitting at a piano singing those witty stylish words."
-- Richard Connema, Talkin' Broadway
"Performer Lloyd has comic timing that works every time. When called for, he sells a sing with outrageous abandon. And yet he can also romance the room with that well-trained voice. That masculine purr will send sensual shivers up and down many a spine. His phrasing works beautifully with the music, and his sense of dynamics is flawless." -- Tom W. Kelly, San Francisco Bay Times
