Heroine: A Cabaret With Courtney Glass Comes to The Lounge at Alex Theatre
Brooklyn Runaways has announced dates for Heroine: A Cabaret with Courtney Glass. Glass, who recently starred in Sweeney Todd with Anthony Warlow and the sold out run of Sunday in the Park with George, will present two performances of her debut cabaret October 2-3, 2019 at Alex Theatre in St. Kilda.
Using her trademark wit and luscious vocals, Courtney Glass will share funny, tragic, and empowering stories about being an actress in 2019. Joined by David Butler on piano, expect a tuneful celebration of her journey into womanhood through an assortment of Broadway standards from Grey Gardens, The Music Man and lots of Sondheim. Glass will reveal how - while being the damsel in distress can be fun on stage - sometimes in life you have to save your damn self.
"Glass' stagecraft and finesse give her a sheer professional edge. She is all style, with clear, pure vocals. Glamorous." - Stage Whispers
