Savannah’s son of song is the focus of the latest OnStage Summer Cabaret.

Savannah native and acclaimed New York Cabaret artist Minda Larsen will sing favorites and deep cuts from Johnny Mercer’s catalog, viewing the legend’s legacy through her own lens.

Much like Mercer, Larsen relates to the struggle of balancing the glitz of fame with hometown roots, navigating the big city life as a small-town Southerner.

Larsen was recently named one of New York City’s rising cabaret stars, listed as “firmly in the ‘one to watch’ category among New York cabaret singers” by Broadwayworld.com.

Accompanied by jazz composer Neal Kirkwood, Larsen will dish out songs like “Goody Goody,” “Skylark,” “Too Marvelous For Words,” and, of course, “Moon River.”

Thursday, June 25, 8 p.m., $25
