Quotes & Highlights

""Alan Palmer’s got exuberance to spare. The ‘New Diva’ medley is a hoot" -Time Out NY

Description

Creator and actor/singer Alan Palmer delivers a hilarious and touching look at growing up in the business while portraying 18 different stars of the stage. In rapid succession—and a nonstop turnover of gorgeous costumes—he brings to life such legends as Ethel Merman, Carol Channing, Liza Minnelli, Angela Lansbury, Julie Andrews, Judy Garland and Chita Rivera, and such Tony-winning stars of today as Christine Ebersole, Patti LuPone, Sutton Foster and Kristin Chenoweth.

Performing 25 songs in each lady’s singular style, he weaves together reminiscences of growing up in Utah obsessed with musical cast albums, auditioning for shows in New York City, performing during onstage and backstage mishaps, raising his young son and interacting with many of the ladies represented in the show. Beyond mimicry, beyond drag, the show is both reverent and irreverent. A loving and hysterical tribute to the prima performers of Broadway, it’s a must for all lovers of musical theater!

This production marks the show’s New York premiere. It comes directly from Los Angeles, where it enjoyed an acclaimed and extended five-month run at Open Stage West.
