Tony Award Winner, Debbie Gravitte, brings her sassy style, blaring brass and swinging orchestrations to an evening of song and fun. Join the party with “...one of the best voices on Broadway!” (AP) You’ve never heard “Surrey With the Fringe on Top” sound anything like this!
"We're talking mega-talented here. She can belt the bloomers off a brassy show tune with enough socko force to knock Merman out of the balcony, or wail blues and torch songs with enough passion to grow icicles on your spine."
- Rex Reed
