Calling All Divas! The concert musical will be making its way to the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pensylvania March 2. The show features an ensemble cast playing hits from some of greatest divas to grace the music industry. Some of those divas include Etta James, Carole King, The Pointer Sisters, Kelly Clarkson, Aretha Franklin, Miley Cyrus, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, and many more. It follows the life of Frankie, a struggling songwriter making his way into the city to find the next big female voice while trying to save a historic music nightspot from closing down. Through his journey, he comes across four women with powerful vocals to become the next superstar. They are portrayed by Broadway performer and Radio City Rockette Lisa Sherman, R&B vocalist Carol Riddick (Jill Scott, Will Downing), Nashville's Trenna Barnes (Cowboy Crush, Ring of Fire) and 19-year-old newcomer Brittneyann Accetta. The musical was created by Franke Previte, who has worked on Dirty Dancing and live show specialist Michael LaFleur (Disney, Universal, Celine Dion, etc.)
Previte made a statement regarding the play, to Broadway World, stating "We have a Broadway girl, a country girl, a gospel singer, and a young subway singer, and it's just incredible to watch them seamlessly meld together into a group we call The Un4gettables. Each one is at the top of their own game, even this little subway singer. He continues to say "What blows me away, is the combination of their instant sisterhood and individual and collective power." Don't miss this show as it celebrates women in music from multiple genres. Tickets for the show are available via AXS.
