Feinstein aims for bright lights

Michael Feinstein is setting his own sights on B’way. He has long championed and performed the music of B’way’s leading creative lyricists and composers and performed their works at concerts/fund-raisers, etc. around the world. Now he is readying his own musical, “Perspectives,” with book by Warner Brown and says producer Kim Poster has optioned the two-character 1950s London-set show.

The range of Feinstein’s talents and personality is evident in his varied, recent appearances — at Carnegie Hall only last week and recently a personal visit to Jane Wyman in Palm Springs where he played favorites for her. She joined him singing song favorites of her halcyon days in Hollywood. They included reminiscences of Bing Crosby duetting on such tunes as “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening.”

Last night, Feinstein was among those at the screening of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” in New York’s Museum of Natural History. Both Al and Tipper Gore spoke to the group in the museum’s hall after the screening and Feinstein was so impressed he has enlisted his talents to do all to convey the message of the film and book — now into its third printing.
