Following her sold-out, critically acclaimed Australian tour of her one-woman play Songs for Nobodies, Bernadette Robinson returns to the Melbourne with a concert of songs by her favourite performers and song-writers.
Three legends of American music, who each contributed to a different aspect of the American Songbook. Judy Garland was the queen of Broadway and film; Patsy Cline was the most successful country music star of her time and Billie Holliday was the lady who sang the blues.
Join Bernadette as she brings to life the songs of these incandescent somebodies. Featuring Judy’s iconic version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Patsy’s take on Willie Nelson’s Crazy and Billie’s signature song Lady Sings The Blues.
‘Bernadette Robinson’s performance is theatrical alchemy. She is remarkable and compelling, her singing thrilling.’ – Kate Herbert, The Herald Sun.
