Jamie Salzano is ready to sparkle
(Page 2 of 4)
Salzano has appeared at The Metropolitan Room, Don’t Tell Mama, and the Duplex in New York City as well as Davenport’s in Chicago. She has also been spotted on television in Law & Order, in the film Carlito’s Way, and in a French Energizer commercial that required her to run across the Brooklyn Bridge several times, among her many endeavors. “Nothing is going to stop me from pursuing my passion,” she said.
“Stardust and other sparkly things...” features songs by Kander & Ebb, Katy Perry, Hoagy Carmichael, and New York City songwriters such as Rick Jensen and Tracy Stark, among other unexpected Broadway, pop, and Great American Songbook gems.
“It’s like I have come full circle,” said Salzano, who now lives on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. “In high school I played Sally Bowles in ‘Cabaret’. And I was fond of saying “Life is a cabaret,” which was my yearbook quote. And now here I am, with my own show.”
“I’ve always been an advocate of the show must go on,” Salzano said. “I’ve had some rough times and lost a person close to me, but I keep having faith that things will work out.”
And for this young star-in-the-making, it all leads back to cabaret. “Cabaret is an amazing process,” Salzano explained,” because you get to tell your story and share your message as you include your audience. They take the journey with you and have their own journey along the way.”
Or as Salzano quotes from the lyrics of “Tear Up the Town,” by composer Brian Lasser,” “Music is the remedy…”
“I may be down, I may have Lyme, but I have lots of spark left,” she stated, “and that’s what you’ll see in my show.”
