#POTD: Portrait of the Day - My 83 Year Young Mother

Today's portrait is dedicated to my mother, 83 years young. Seen here with her loving husband of 62 years, they are the epitome of treasuring every moment and allowing it to foster.

She has taught me much, and continues to. It was she who recognized in me at a young age that I was an artist. And though recognition, memories, and sometimes even verbal communication may no longer be every day expectations, every day she is here is reason to celebrate.

Portrait of the Day: Karen Mason

This past Saturday evening, an endeared audience in Bucks County's New Hope Cabaret The RRAZZ ROOM was treated to the latest offering by Christopher Denny leading theatrical power diva Karen Mason in "Mason's Makin' Music". 

As the stunning talent herself said at the opening of the evening, "What else would she be doing?"

The show featured selections from throughout her career and from her current album, "It's About Time." 

Today's portrait shows Karen in a resoundingly triumphant - and deserving - high note!

Broadway/Cabaret Star Returns To The RRazz Room to Celebrate her newest recording "It's About Time".


12-time MAC award winner and Drama Desk nominee Karen Mason transports audiences through a musical journey: “No one in cabaret walks the line between humor and sorrow, joy and despair as nimbly as Karen Mason” (Chicago Sun-Times).


Hailed as “a rarity” (New York Times), Karen’s award-winning shows, which have played sold-out venues and captured the hearts of audiences from coast to coast.


For tickets, head on over to The RRAZZ ROOM Website.

Here is my recap of Ms Mason opening the Philadelphia RRAZZ ROOM in September, 2015.
