Direct from New York City, Quinn Lemley and her back up divas will "dazzle audiences in a scintillating tribute to the women who defined burlesque and illuminated Broadway. From Fanny Brice, Sally Rand, Mae West, Bette Midler and others - this fabulous production will transport audiences to the world of Minsky's, Vaudeville, and The Ziegfeld Follies. Directed by Tony Award-winning Director Joe Hardy, Burlesque to Broadway delivers a visually stunning performance backed by an intoxicating 10-piece band, celebrating the iconic music and the ladies who went from burlesque to Broadway and beyond.
"Quinn Lemley and her sexy sidekicks, Gracie and Raz - backed by a smoking, LIVE 10-piece big band - transport audiences to the golden era of vaudeville where oversized personalities, such as Mae West, Cher and the "Queen of Queens", Miss Gypsy Rose Lee, teasing dances, and brassy singing ruled the day.
"Burlesque to Broadway is a fun-filled, compelling and uplifting story of the timeless icons that rose from meager beginnings to becoming strong, celebrated artists. Using song, dance and vivid imagery, with dynamic vocals from Quinn and her "girls" with one show-stopping hit after another, She's A Lady, You Don't Own Me, Boom Boom, Let Me Entertain You... Miss Lemley portrays the heart and soul, not to mention the humor of these sexy and glamorous stars at the height of their career. Accompanied by a LIVE 10-piece band, each song is like an atomic explosion and with each story and joke a better understanding and appreciation of what becomes a legend most!"
