Written by award-winning playwright Joanna Murray-Smith (Honour) Songs For Nobodies showcases Robinson’s astonishing talent for recreating the great singers of the past. Commissioned and directed by Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the Musical,former Artistic Director of the Melbourne Theatre Company), her moving and witty performance has earned rave reviews across sold-out seasons, around the world.
The uniquely talented Australian singer and actor, Bernadette Robinson invites you to an audience with Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas in the critically acclaimed one-woman tour de force Songs For Nobodies at Wilton’s Music Hall for a strictly limited season.
On stage for 90 minutes accompanied by live musicians, her miraculous voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf. With consummate ease, she breathes new life into the five legendary performers and the five ordinary women whose lives were changed by their brush with fame.
