Sally Kellerman, the Oscar-nominated “Hot Lips Houlihan” of the original Robert Altman film “M*A*S*H,” will bring her acclaimed show, “A Little Jazz, a Little Blues, a Little Rock and Roll” to the Rrazz Room at The Raven in New Hope for one performance only on Saturday, May 14.
The show is a celebration of her 40-year cabaret career, say promoters, from her early years at Reno Sweeney in Greenwich Village up to recent performances in New York, L.A., San Francisco and London, where her distinctive, husky voice has helped establish her as an accomplished jazz and blues vocalist.
Kellerman has starred in more than 50 films and countless TV shows and even hosted “Saturday Night Live.” She currently has a recurring role on Marc Maron’s IFC comedy series “Maron,” and was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her guest appearances this past season on “The Young and the Restless.” In addition to “M*A*S*H,” her classic films include “Brewster McCloud,” “Welcome to L.A.,” “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” “Big Blonde,” “A Little Romance,” “Lost Horizon,” “Boris and Natasha,” “Ready to Wear (Pret-a-Porter)” and “Back to School.”
While perhaps best-known as “Hot Lips,” for folks of a certain generation and geeky bent she is also fondly remembered as Dr. Elizabeth Dehner from the third episode of TV’s “Star Trek” entitled “Where No Man Has Gone Before.”
Her voice has been heard on hundreds of commercials (most famously Hidden Valley Ranch) and she recorded a duet with Ella Fitzgerald’s son, Ray Brown Jr., for his album “Friends and Family.” Her own classic album, “Roll With the Feelin’,” was recently reissued by Geffen Records, and was followed by the acclaimed CD, “Sally.” Her saucy memoir “Read My Lips,” is currently in bookstores.
Kellerman appears on Saturday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m. at Rrazz Room at the Raven, 385 W. Bridge St. Tickets are $55 for Limited VIP, and $40 for general admission.
