Songs of Bernadette
After her sold out shows in August, Bernadette Robinson returns to Crazy Coqs! Her performances in Songs For Nobodies at London's Ambassadors Theatre in early 2019 earned the show an Olivier Awards nomination and introduced her as a new star on the West End. Alone on stage, Bernadette played the 5 "nobodies" of the title and 5 iconic singers of the 20th century: Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas. The Times called her "A jaw-dropping talent"; The Telegraph, recalling her portrayal of Callas singing Vissi D'arte from Puccini's Tosca, commented "It's so sublime, it's like a shot of morphine; for a blissful few minutes, all the cares of the world are gone." Now, Bernadette is excited to return to London as part of Live at Zedel in a solo concert tited Songs of Bernadette. In this concoction of musical delights Bernadette pays tribute to those same legendary performers, and others, presents songs by contemporary songwriters such as Damien Rice, Jane Siberry and Jackson Browne, and introduces some surprise guests (think Barbra Streisand, Shirley Bassey and Julie Andrews). This will be a concert to savour.
