Saluting The Late Legendary Ladies Of Song
Martha Raye, Madeline Kahn, Pearl Bailey, Patsy Cline, Ethel Merman, Judy Canova
Sharon McNight, the Tony nominated, award winning entertainer is returning to The RRazz Room in New Hope on Saturday, March 24. Her new show is entitled "GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN," saluting the late legendary ladies of song.

In "GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN," McNight tips her hat in a tribute to some of the great women singers and comediennes who are no longer with us, but whose names live on. She has chosen a signature song by each legendary lady and some interesting historical tidbits as well. The audience is encouraged to play along before each song. Spoiler alert: Some of the women include Betty, Sophie, Ethel, Judy, Patsy, Bette, Madeline and who knows who else will show up. Sharon will be backed up by Ian Herman on the mighty eighty-eights.

2018 promises to be a busy year for Ms. McNight, who will revive the Off-Broadway show she wrote and starred in, "RED HOT MAMA," at the Seven Angels Theatre, Waterbury, Connecticut from February 15 to March 11. The show features the music and life of show business legend, Sophie Tucker. New York critics called the show "a musical tour de force . . . you'll be seeing a world class performance up close and personal." Then, in March, the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs is honoring McNight with their Lifetime Achievement Award to be presented at B.B. Kings Supper Club on 42nd Street. Previous winners have included Peter Allen, Marilyn Maye, Leslie Uggams, Maureen McGovern, and Annie Ross. McNight won the first MAC award in 1987 for Outstanding Female Vocalist.

The Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC) will present Tony nominee Sharon McNight with its 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 32nd Annual MAC Awards to be held Tuesday, March 27 at 7:00 pm at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York City.

Sharon McNight received a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Starmites, as well as a Theatre World Award. She appeared in the Los Angeles production of Heartbeats and Nunsense in LA and San Francisco. On TV, she appeared on Seinfeld, Silk Stalkings, and Hannah Montana. She has been a mainstay on cabaret stages around the world. She received the very first MAC Award for Female Vocalist in 1987. She's also the recipient of two Bistro Awards (1986, 2016). She began her cabaret career in the gay bars in San Francisco in the late 1970s. Her one-woman shows include Songs to Offend Almost Everyone; Gone, But Not Forgotten: Saluting the Late, Legendary Ladies of Song; and Soup to Nuts. In addition to her MAC and Bistro Awards, she has received four Nightlife Awards and four Cabaret Gold awards. Her one woman show, Red Hot Mama, based on the life of the first lady of show business, Sophie Tucker, enjoyed an Off-Broadway run at the York Theatre, and the concert version of that show won the award for best show of 2014. The Off-Broadway version began the 2017 season of the Cinnabar Theatre, Petaluma, and is part of the 2018 season of Seven Angels Theatre, Waterbury, Connecticut. She has a Master's degree in directing, and was on the faculty of the Cabaret Symposium at Yale University and a guest teacher at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center.
