Jackie Draper

Jackie Draper will return to the The Laurie Beechman Theatre with a one-night-only extended engagement of her show, Designing Woman. A design implies an orderly plan (or scheme). Contrary to our plans, our lives often take unexpected turns, leading to new directions and designs. Explore such roads and detours with Jackie and her musical team through songs in English, French, and Spanish (dance, too). Musical designers included in Jackie's show: composers/lyricists Aznavour, Bricusse, Coleman/ Zippel, Dearie/Mercer, Joel, Legrand/David, Lerner/Lane, Malneck/Loesser, Mulligan, Porter, Waller/Razaf, Warren/Gordon, and others.

Music Director (at the piano) – Gregory Toroian; on bass – Ritt Henn; on woodwinds – Robbyn Tongue; special guest (and dance partner) – Franklin Ayala. Kimberly Vaughn directs.

Lynda Rodolitz presented her first solo show Mature Love Songs at The Duplex just last fall. From her "mature" perspective, Lynda takes a clear eyed look at love and finds it lacking. She considers life's successes and not-so's, and tells the truth as only a very funny lady can.

What can I tell you? The show was obviously a winner! She's just announced two dates for an Encore Presentation. Book your reservations early.

Lynda will be joined onstage by music director Paul Greenwood. Helen Baldassare directs.
