Writer and comic Bruce Vilanch steps into a role previously performed by Bert Lahr and Red Skelton in this production of Du Barry Was a Lady. Featuring music and lyrics by Cole Porter, the story follows a hapless nightclub washroom attendant who wins the Irish Sweepstakes. An inadvertent dose of knock-out drops transports him to a dream world where he imagines himself as King Louis XV in pursuit of the lovely and mischievous Madame Du Barry. Porter's score features terrific numbers including "Friendship," "Well, Did You Evah?," "Do I Love You?," "Katie Went to Haiti" and "But in the Morning, No." Learn More

About the artist:
Multilingual and multitalented, Lua Hadar has performed as a singer and actor since her New York childhood. She is now based in San Francisco, where she performs and tours with her band Twist, singing jazz spiced with pop, funk, Latin and international cabaret. She is an entertainer who brings joy and laughter to audiences, no matter what language they speak.
Instantly accessible and truly exotic, this Broadway-influenced performer has been molded by exchange experiences in places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, France and Italy, where she performed on tour for five years. Her fascination with world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for Twist in the development of their signature “jazz without borders.”
A unique and original vocalist with a soaring range, Lua interprets lyrics in several languages with a charming, swinging delivery. Michael Arens of Jazz Germany says “…She makes the other side of the world seem a stone’s throw away.”
