With one show stopping number after another, Burlesque to Broadway splashes onto The Triple Door stage for three nights only, starring Quinn Lemley, her backup gals and an intoxicating 10-piece big band.
Together, this team of musicians and performers light up the stage and bring the audience into the worlds of Minsky's Burlesque Theatre, The Ziegfeld Follies, Broadway and beyond in this fast paced theatrical concert. Hot off a sold out run in Athens, Greece, Quinn Lemley channels the "queen of comedy" Fanny Brice, the outrageous Bette Midler, Sally Rand and her Fan, Seattle's own Gypsy Rose Lee and others that defined burlesque and illuminated Broadway. Burlesque to Broadway plays The Triple Door for six performances only, February 23 - 25, 2011.
Star of the critically acclaimed The Heat is On (celebrating the life of Rita Hayworth), Quinn Lemley is an international favorite from New York's B.B. King Blues Club to The Half Note in Athens, Greece, where she was celebrated by the media as "The Iconic Face of The Half Note." Having appeared in many of the top theatres of the world across the US, Europe and China, she has performed Burlesque to Broadway at LA's Haugh Center for the Arts, NY's Lehman Center and to sold out audiences at the Kravis Center and Sunrise Theatre.
Tony-Award and Drama Desk Award winning director, Joe Hardy, takes you on a ride through the music of burlesque, Broadway and beyond, with show stopping numbers from Sweet Charity, Gypsy, Cole Porter's Leave it to Me, My Man, to name a few.
