Songs Of The Silver Screen was a joyous romp through the years of movie music, starting in the 1930's and going right up to present day. Ms. Myatt sang most of the songs, although there was also a male quartet who sang a few, together or separately, or in duets with Myatt. She had a lovely voice, by the way. The instrumental ensemble was really talented as well, especially the pianist and trumpeter.
The songs were interspersed with clips from movies and old news reels and with Ms. Myatt talking about the songs and their time period, relating interesting facts or why the song she was about to sing was important to her (she wrote the show). It was all very interesting, and alternately amusing and touchingly nostalgic as we traveled through the history of cinema and song. There was a great mix of songs- everything from Lullaby of Broadway to Purple Rain, from Cruella De Vil to Moon River. Right before the Intermission, Ms. Myatt did a medley of Bond themes which was really impressive as well. All in all, it was a wonderful evening of song and film, and really demonstrated how impossible it is to separate the two.
