Bubbling Brown Sugar - 1976 - Broadway

"Bubble took Broadway, London, Berlin and Paris by storm when it made the rounds in the late ‘70s," says Springer noting that the Broadway and London cast albums are still big sellers. He credits the production's music and choreography for its success "back then and its sure-fire appeal now.



"Bubble is a timeless tribute to the likes of Ellington, Blake, Calloway and Holiday and evokes the elegance and excitement of the legendary Cotton Club, Small's Paradise and Savoy Ballroom. It's chock full of show-stopping numbers. Who could ask for anything more?"

Actress/singer/vocal coach Susan Edwards Martin, Lady Blues in Torch Song Trilogy on Broadway and star of many other musical shows, recently premiered her solo cabaret show at Upstairs at Vitello's. I reviewed the show and she was sensational.* She is taking the show to Feinstein's 54/Below in New York on March 23. Edwards Martin also has created an original show about the optimistic way she lives her life called, 'Unlimited! You'll Have the Time of Her Life!", that had a spectacular one night presentation and is currently waiting in the wings for a full production. Busy, busy, busy, Edwards also recently performed with Musical Theatre Guild as the lead in Minnie's Boys to rave reviews. Ms. Edwards Martin sat down and discussed her career thus far, and about the story behind Unlimited! You'll Have the Time of Her Life! and her latest cabaret show. Before we start to look back I always ask a few less relevant questions about musical theatre.
