Simply Styne

Cabaret singer Karen Akers warms up New Orleans for the holidays with the charm of her intimate interpretations of classic love songs. Akers' new show, Simply Styne, features familiar romantic tunes by composer Jule Styne, including 'Time After Time," 'I Fall in Love Too Easily," 'Long Before I Knew You" and 'Let Me Entertain You." The New York City-based singer is appearing for the third time at Le Chat Noir. Her illustrious career has taken her throughout the United States, Europe and to the former Soviet Union. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and the White House, starred in several award-winning Broadway productions and has been featured in two PBS television specials. Opening night is sponsored by the Mystic Krewe of Satyricon (call 525-4498 for that show only, tickets $30). Tickets $40 Friday and Saturday nights, $36 Sunday night (ticket prices include $5 drink credit). — Lindsey Netherly
