Singer, songwriter, actor and all-around talent Lyle Lovett and his Acoustic Group took the stage of the Ridgefield Playhouse recently as the headline performance in the organization’s annual Summer Gala. The spectacular evening was a feast for the senses, including dinner, open bar, silent auction and a rousing performance by Lovett. The artist has released more than a dozen albums and is widely praised for a talent for mixing in storytelling into his music, a blend of country, swing, jazz, folk and blues. He played for a packed house. A piece of signed memorabilia from Lovett was included in the live auction, all to benefit The Ridgefield Playhouse, a non-for-profit performing arts center.
