HOLLYWOOD —Shelly Goldstein is a Hollywood screenwriter and producer who is also a gifted comic as well as one of the most sought after and popular cabaret singers from London to Los Angeles. Her theme is London in the swinging ’60s and she delivers a very funny depiction on how she imagines it was at the time, meeting The Beatles and Yoko Ono, The Who etc. Although she was never there in ’60s London, she considers it her spiritual home.
Shelly also pays tribute to the songs of Carol King, Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent, Tom Springfield et al, singers such as Mama Cass, Petula Clark, Lesley Gore and Dusty Springfield, and songs including “These Boots Are Made for Walking,” “One Fine Day,” “Georgy Girl,” “Downtown,” “I Know a Place,“ “Don’t Sleep in the Subway,” “It’s My Party” and “Something Tells Me I’m Into Something Good.” She also wittily rewrites her favorite songs to suit her own views and something tells me that she has made a very welcome return to the cabaret scene.
Ms. Goldstein is one of the busiest writers of awards shows in Hollywood, New York and the UK. She frequently works punching up screenplays and writing special material, comedy and song lyrics for performers. Shelly has doctored scripts or written special material for such artists as Steve Martin, Sharon Stone, Cybill Shepherd, Liza Minnelli, Donald Trump, James Earl Jones, Eva Longoria, Whoopi Goldberg as well as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Norman Lear and even Princess Caroline of Monaco and Yoko Ono.
The Magic Castle is the world’s most famous club for magicians and magic enthusiasts and home to The Academy of Magical Arts, Inc.
