" a kind shot "
 
I said to Ike, “Girls play basketball?” He said, “Yeah!…but you got wimpy wrists.” Then he showed me how to crunch up the New York Times to develop my strength.
 
Venue: ( Davenport Theatre)

Producer: ( Terri Mateer)
Terri Mateer
City: New York

Additional Notes:
In a kind shot , Mateer, a former professional basketball player, begins by standing alone on a bare stage dribbling a basketball. She soon rolls the ball aside and starts telling the story of her life and how a boarder in her childhood home named Ike taught a 61” sixth grade Mateer to play basketball. It's an uplifting, honest, no-holds-barred personal account that chronicles her years as a professional basketball player, aspiring architect, and model. a kind shot drives the point that we all need to coach each other. It's one of life's grand acts of kindness.

What critics have said:

“...combining the soul of a gospel singer with the musicianship of a jazz singer and the warm, chatty intimacy of a great cabareteuse. She can sing sweetly and softly and she can belt with the kind of power that you makes you respect her authority...Natalie Douglas is an artist well worth staying up late for.”
- Wall Street Journal

“...a set that not only showed off her range and flair for nuance, but also established once and for all that she is one of the few vocalists in cabaret who can sing just about anything.”
- Broadway World

“...by all accounts, one of the foremost cabaret artists today.”
- Theatre Pizzazz

“An artist of a much higher caliber.”
- Theatermania

“She is considered what Green Acres' Eva Gabor would call a shoosting star, a friendly, unimposing presence with a monstrous talent.“
- Next Magazine

…when she belts, she's got enough pipes to outfit a plumber's convention. The truth is... she's got everything.
- The NY Daily News

... Douglas' tone and timbre are unmistakable. Douglas has never been in better voice...
- ShowBusiness Weekly

“Douglas now sings with more power, support and-most importantly-unbridled joy than ever before...amazing.
- Show Business Weekly Online

“The roof shook as her voice echoed across the island of Manhattan. In a roller coaster of emotion, she rips into some rhythm and blues ballads that instantly recall a younger Nancy Wilson. A diva to be reckoned with.”
- Cabaret Hotline
