|Music & Comedy with Ms. Sophie Tucker!!|
Red Hot Mama – SEPTEMBER 19TH & 20TH, 2022
From the first bawdy wisecrack to the final fun-loving wink, Sharon McNight IS Sophie Tucker.
Currently celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the award-winning show RED HOT MAMA was conceived & written by Sharon McNight based on the writings and music of Ms. Sophie Tucker. Sophie introduced many songs that are still being sung today, including: Gershwin’s “The Man I Love,” “He’s A Good Man to Have Around,” “After You’ve Gone,” “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, and her ever popular theme song, “Some of These Days.” Sophie’s classic sense of humor was considered ribald for its time and while many of her songs were slightly naughty, by today’s standards they’re simply great fun. She earned the nickname, “Red Hot Mama” when headlining at the world famous Palace Theater and a fire erupted. Undeterred, Sophie remained onstage performing as the audience safely exited. This is musical theater, you don’t want to miss!
