Gone Country

April 7 – 11, 2015

Maria Egler

Gannon O’Brien

Bligh Voth

Y’all best be ready in your favorite cowboy boots and to bring it on home with some of the best music from Nashville. Starring cabaret favorites Maria Egler (Sunday in the Park with George, Elmer Gantry), Gannon O’Brien (Miss Saigon) and Bligh Voth (Ladies Choice cabaret, Signature Sings), we reckon you’ll want to start line dancing around the 4th floor Shen Cabaret space.

Watch Maria and Gannon sing Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers’s country classic “Islands in the Stream.” If you saw and loved Gannon playing his guitar in the recent Signature Tenors cabaret, click through for a special bonus – he is quite the picker!

Donna Migliaccio: Randomosity

May 19 – 23, 2015

Donna headlines her own cabaret, Randomosity, to close out Signature’s 2014/15 Cabaret Series. From co-founder to Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies to Simply Sondheim, her long history with Signature inspires her rambling recollections, backstage stories and the occasional song. Get your tickets now! This one is sure to sell out.

You might have recently seen Signature’s co-founder Donna Migliaccio play the roles of Georges Seurat’s mother and Blair in last fall’s critically-acclaimed production of Sunday in the Park with George, where she mesmerized the audience with her rendition of “Beautiful.” Watch the video below.
