The Magical Mellifluous Marieann Meringolo Records in Our Presence–Can’t Wait for the CD

By LARRY MYERS****Before I arrived at the trèchic, packed Iridium for the worshipers of the talent who should be playing Funny Girl on Broadway, I phoned an octogenarian friend to play YouTube excerpts of Marieann Meringolo. Taken immediately by the magnetic voice, my friend proceeded to order all her CDs.  I must offer a disclosure. I am not a fan of Marieann; I am a fanatic.  Three articles later — two valentines and an interview–I rest my case. Marieann is on the brink of major stardom and I’d like to be the one who gave her the shove. But only if she kissed me first!
