A sparkling ‘Shirley Temple’ for arts·meme, the Los Angeles arts blog that came into existence on May 24, 2008. The young lady, having formally entered café society, here hoists a cocktail in commemoration of her sixth birthday.

Happy birthday, arts·meme!

    Debra — What a pleasure to be with you at Maurice Hines’s Tappin’ Thru Life at the Wallis Annenberg Theatre.
    It was quite wonderful to experience this master of cabaret. What a tightly woven program of singing, dancing, and story telling. He never missed a step. The band and the young guest tappers were brilliant, but it was Hines — at 70! — who was what he sang: “Too Marvelous for Words.” Thanks, too, for our scintillating after-the -show cafe conversation about dance in L.A, past present and future. I’m looking forward to your conversation at the Music Center on June 14 with George Chakiris, whose dancing in West Side Story was, well, perfect.
