Tony Award-Nominee Mary Bridget Davies At Catalina Bar & Grill, 5/13
Chris Isaacson Presents has announced that Tony Award nominee Mary Bridget Davies (A Night with Janis Joplin) will bring her electric charm and powerhouse vocals to Catalina Bar & Grill in Hollywood for one show only on Sunday, May 13, at 7:30pm. Musical direction is by Ryan Sudick.
In 2005, Mary Bridget Davies won the lead role for a touring production of Love, Janis, a collection of Janis Joplin's performances interspersed with readings of her personal letters to her family throughout her career. Davies has toured Europe with Janis Joplin's original band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and has formed her own band, The Mary Bridget Davies Group that tours festivals and clubs worldwide. In 2012, Davies took over the lead role in A Night with Janis Joplin on tour and stayed with the show when it moved to off-Broadway and then to Broadway in 2013 where she was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her performance. She had previously been nominated for a 2013 Helen Hayes Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical. Davies has also performed in a tour of the musical revue It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues.
Chris Isaacson Presents (CIP) has created, produced, and promoted over 700 events since the company's founding in 2004. From small clubs to major theatres, CIP has presented some of the most influential stars of this generation. CIP's summer event in 2016 - Broadway Under the Stars: Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of "Dreamgirls" - was a complete sellout at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. In early 2017, CIP coordinated and produced an elaborate kick-off event at the Pacific Design Center celebrating the premiere of Ryan Murphy's FEUD: Bette and Joan (FX Networks). The Drag-Tacular Live Concert Event featured Tony Award-nominee Sam Harris as host. Niki Haris and Bianca Del Rio were only two of the many stars in the show, which played to a standing room only crowd.
