The uniquely talented Australian singer and actor, Bernadette Robinson performs the critically acclaimed one-woman tour de force Songs For Nobodies.
Written by award-winning playwright Joanna Murray Smith - who with Switzerland at Theatre Royal Bath and the upcoming production of Honour at Park Theatre will have three productions produced in the UK over the past year - Songs For Nobodies showcases Robinson’s astonishing talent for recreating the great singers of the past. Commissioned and directed by Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical, Muriel’s Wedding, North By North West (Theatre Royal Bath) former Artistic Director of the Melbourne Theatre Company), her moving and uplifting performance has earned rave reviews across sold-out seasons, around the world.
On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians, her miraculous voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf. With consummate ease, she breathes new life into the five legendary performers and the five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brush with fame.
A tightly crafted showcase for the singular vocal talent of Bernadette Robinson
