Lorna Dallas at the Birdland Theater

Birdland Theater is proud to announce the return of singer Lorna Dallas to the stage, with one show only, premiering a sparkling new show, "STAGES," devised by her two long time collaborators, musical director Christopher Denny and director Barry Kleinbort. "STAGES" refers to those theaters and nightclubs where Ms. Dallas displayed her formidable gifts as a singer and top tier interpreter of popular song, as well as to the formative stages in a life, stages that have taken her from a small town in Southern Illinois to the rarefied hothouse atmosphere of New Orleans and on to dazzling nights in the West End with Sammy Cahn and Dame Cleo Laine, culminating in Royal Command performances for Queen Elizabeth and the Royal family. The musical program is equally diverse, ranging from unforgettable standards and show tunes by Broadway's greats to little known but equally worthy gems from both sides of the "pond." In short, "STAGES" offers a treasure trove of glorious singing, intimate detail and heartfelt reminiscence.
