Lianne Marie Dobbs returns to the stage with her pre-pandemic smash Why CAN'T A Woman...?

Photos: Lianne Marie Dobbs Debuts WHY CAN'T A WOMAN...? at 54 Below Lens By Helane Blumfield Cabaret artist, singing actress Lianne Marie Dobbs returned to the nightclub stage this week to present her literary, positive feminist, musical cabaret Why CAN'T A Woman...? for the first time since the lockdown of 2020. This production that started at The Beach Cafe, then played The Green Room 42 before the pandemic, is one great and original night of entertainment (read the Broadway World review from 2020 HERE) and one that has been missing from the cabaret stages for far too long. Happily, now it is back, with Lianne Marie and Musical Director Ron Abel making the most of this moment, and making the audiences happy they bought a ticket.

Broadway World Cabaret photographer Helane Blumfiled was in the house on November 16th to capture this one-of-a-kind show in action.
