NY’s own DEBORAH GIBSON, who put her handprints into cement yesterday at PLANET HOLLYWOOD, wrapped up her ‘Deborah Gibson Electric Youth’ performing arts camp today at Ripley-Grier studios and was visited by ‘ROCK OF AGES’ CONSTANTINE MAROULIS. His play which officially moves to Broadway with an official opening on April 7 (at the Brooks Atkinson), has paired up with Gibson before at a Broadway Cares/Rockers on Broadway event in 2007 at BB King’s. The play did a series of performances at the New World stages to much fanfare, for their inspired choices of music and the fact that you were able to bring your drinks to your seats and wave during power ballads; sort of a in-seat cocktail service.
Maroulis greeted the kids at the camp and posed for pictures. Yesterday”s event for Gibson was also noted for her words on the sudden-passing of the late-great EARTHA KITT. The two appeared in a production of CINDERELLA for six months several years back. Said Gibson of Kitt, “She was my fairy godmother. An amazing woman who was not afraid to speak her mind and went out singing and high kicking. She will be missed terribly by all who knew her.”
Gibson also showed at Sardi’s over the weekend and performed several numbers as a featured guest on JAMES BARBOUR’s holiday series of shows. source
