Night out: Moran or Morris? Tough choice for music fans

Tomorrow night presents a conundrum for cabaret fans.

You can go hear legendary Chicago cabaret diva Audrey Morris in a celebration of “The Great American Songbook.” Morris’s career dates back to the 1950s, when she was a regular performer at places like the Capitol Lounge and Mister Kelly’s.

Or you can catch vocalist Heather Moran being naughty in “I Told You I Loved Ya, Now Get Out,” a selection of sexy “housewife” hits from 1950s artists like Rosemary Clooney, Dinah Shore, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and June Christy, accompanied by a swinging jazz trio.

Morris and friends perform at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow, Nov. 21, at Angelo’s Taverna in Old Town. There’s no cover charge. The venue, which offers a full menu of Greek fare, will feature drink and dinner specials that night.

Moran, accompanied by pianist Damian Espinosa, bassist Marc Piane and drummer Frank Parker, performs at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Skokie Theatre. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. This could be a good opportunity to check out De-Jred, the Jamaican restaurant that opened in downtown Skokie in late September.

Whichever you choose, you’re assured of a great night of entertainment.
