Paul Anka performing "Diana" live in 2011
There's an old showbiz adage that says, "It's the singer that matters, not the song." And while Paul Anka charmed the world during the '50s and '60s with his boyish charisma and disarming tenor, the song always mattered. Anka's contributions to popular music are just as vital as his golden pipes. In early tunes he penned for himself—from "Diana" to "Lonely Boy" and "Put Your Head on My Shoulder"—he crafted romantic odes that instantly turned listeners into infatuated teenagers. His '70s classics such as "(You're) Having My Baby" and "One Man Woman/One Woman Man" repopulated civilizations, and he’s even crafted hits for other legendary singers. Most notably, he wrote the English lyrics for "My Way," saving Frank Sinatra the embarrassment of trying to croon "Comme d'habitude." Now touring at 71 years old without looking or sounding his age, Anka commemorates his 55th year in showbiz with a new tour, a new autobiography, and his latest album, Duets, where he collaborates with artists such as Michael Bublé, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson. Live, the veteran entertainer beams and cheerleads a set chartering all of his greatest hits, even though he could leave fans speechless by simply singing the back of a shampoo bottle.
NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts and musical theater.
