LIVE: Cyndi Lauper & Rosie O’Donnell @ Proctors, 8/11/09

At one point during Tuesday night’s concert, they joked that it sounds like a potential TV sit-com, “The Cyn & Rosie Show.” And at times it was.

After her 25-minute stand-up routine (topics: menstruation to menopause), Rosie O’Donnell introduced Cyndi Lauper as “a living legend, a musical genius and an all-around good girl.” Then, slipping behind a microphone, Rosie assisted on backing vocals, as Lauper and her band whirled through their opening volley of Prince’s “When You Were Mine,” the crowd-pleasing “She Bop,” “Goonies R Good Enough,” “All Through the Night” (with Lauper on dulcimer) and Joni Mitchell’s “Carey.”
