Euan Morton opened his new show, “Caledonia: Songs for the Homecoming,” at the popular cabaret venue the Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street in NYC. Morton a Tony and Drama Desk nominee for his fantastic performance as Boy George in the Broadway musical “Taboo, a role he originated in London where he received an Olivier Award nomination, is native of Scotland. Morton,backed by Bryan Reeder on piano and Maud Reardon on violin, dwelled on music from his homeland, particulary the songs of the great Scottish songwriter/poet, Robert Burns, who wrote Auld Lang Syne. Morton is always an engaging presence, but the focus on mostly obscure material felt somewhat contrived and often a wee bit forced. There were, however, mesmerizing highlights like the cover of the Annie Lennox classic “Why?” Euan Morton will play the Metropolitan Room Thursday through Saturday June 11- 27 at 9:45 PM.
