Broadway's Pia Zadora to Premiere New Show 'Pia Reloaded' at Metropolitan Room Tomorrow
Zadora's powerful voice gained her a musical following in Europe and she enjoyed a string of hit singles around the world. She was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the song "Rock It Out" in 1984. In the late 1980s, Pia recorded and released Pia & Phil, an album of standards with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Soon after in the early 1990s, Frank Sinatra invited Pia to tour with him as his opening act.
In June 2014, Pia was a highlight during the 50th anniversary celebration of Fiddler on the Roof at Broadway's Town Hall, where she shared memories of the once-in-a-lifetime experience that had defined and cradled her fledgling career. Recently, the accomplished singer has been showcasing a nightclub persona week-in-and-week-out in her signature cabaret room, "Pia's Place" within the famous Piero's Italian Cuisine in Las Vegas, drawing the attention of notable celebrities, entertainment professionals and other high-profile individuals.
Pia Reloaded is backed by former Sinatra pianist Vinnie Falcone and directed by Emmy, Golden Globe and Las Vegas Star of the Year-winning producer, Jeff Kutash. All costumes and gowns are designed by fashion icon, Bob Mackie.
