The Rrazz Room (and yes, it has two Rs), the cabaret venue located off the lobby in the Hotel Nikko, celebrated its fourth
anniversary Rrazziversary last night with a star-studded cast of favorite performers including the likes of Linda Lavin and Mary Wilson.
Where else is a show-queen to go to get a little piano-bar flavor the likes of which you can't get anywhere else east of Martuni's? And obviously big stars from several decades past like Lavin, Pia Zadora, and Freda Payne don't just perform for nickles at any old venue. (Lavin was said to have flown in from New York for the occasion, where she's about to open in a new play.) OH! And Cece Peniston was there. Remember her??
The whole thing was a benefit for St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and it was a one-night-only affair. Tonight they return to their regularly scheduled programming with former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter (!) doing a show called "Body and Soul." And don't miss Melissa Manchester!! Coming in April!!
