Steppin' Out a little more in NYC

I just got word that the producer of the Steppin' Out: Joe Jackson's Night and Day NYC cabaret on October 27th wants to expand the show's duration. This is going to allow us to add in a few songs I really hated to cut, including "Cancer," "Chinatown," and "Glamour and Pain."

Also, we're taking advantage of the workshop environment to try some new material never before included in the show. I've always thought that Joe's 2007 album Rain was thematically very close to being Night and Day III. With that in mind, we're going to add "King Pleasure Time" to Steppin' Out, for this iteration at least. Time permitting, we may consider adding another song or two, such as Invisible Man or Rush Across the Road. I'd love to hear JJ fans' thoughts.
