Last night New York's consummate cabaret and musical theater Powerhouse- Marta Sanders teamed up with larger than life comedic Chanteuse Leanne Borghesi in 'SHOWBROADS' a bawdy new nightclub act at Birdland Jazz Club. Sanders and Borghesi's dynamic vocals, comedic chops and brassy belts are reminiscent of the historic Vaudeville/Burlesque circuit. Two brassy belters and one hot band these 'SHOWBROADS' are doin' it the Broad's way for one night only in a raucous 75- minute nightclub duet... where tempers will flare and feathers will fly! Directed by Nicolas Minas, Dramaturgy by Nathan Cann, Musical Direction by Dana P. Rowe with Don Kelly on drums, Jim Piela on sax/clarinet/flute, Jamie Mohamdien on bass.
