RED HOT MAMA: THE SOPHIE TUCKER SONGBOOK

PG 13

Modesto native and Tony Award nominee Sharon McNight gives the "performance of a lifetime" (L.A. Times) in this remarkable story of the first lady of show business whose career spanned 60 years. Sophie Tucker was the consummate performer on stage and film, a part of the Ziegfeld Follies, a radio and television star, and a musical recording artist. The concert is a virtual history the music and style of Burlesque, Vaudeville, Broadway and Las Vegas. McNight performs more than two dozen songs made famous by Tucker, including timeless standards by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, and Henderson, DeSylva & Brown. Among them is Tucker’s unforgettable 1928 million-seller, My Yiddishe Mama.

Recommended for audiences 18 years and older.
