The Return Of Lauryn Hill

The Return Of Lauryn Hill


Sometimes negative buzz can be a good thing. You go in expecting little, you go home getting more than you bargained for. The chatter about Lauryn Hill's comeback has involved a lot of carping - she's late, she's wacky, she's mean. She did go on at midnight on the House of Blues in Atlantic City this weekend, but since when is that a crime againsrt humanity on a Saturday night? And the former Fugee did plenty to remind us of her unmatched combo skills as a singer and a rapper, drawing from the Fugees' The Score, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and including three Bob Marley and one Flamingos cover. That's her at the HOB above. My review of the show from Monday's Inquirer is here. A Theater of Living Arts date has been added for February 8.
