With direction by David Hilder, this show features what press notes describe as “a mix of joyful, touching, thought-provoking and laughter-inducing 21st century songs written by outstanding artists such as Adele, Annie Lennox, Sara Bareilles, Susan Werner, Meghan Trainor and Tracy Chapman. The program reflects the voices of women in their 20s, as well as those in their 60s and every decade in between, opening a window to the hearts and minds of contemporary women.”
Prior to this show, Lucille’s most recent cabaret outings were celebrations of the music of The Beatles and of 1970s female singer-songwriters. She performed for a number of years in the regional productions of the New Jersey-based Entertainers Theater before developing her first cabaret act. Since her Don’t Tell Mama debut in 1999, Lucille has presented ten different one-woman shows at clubs in New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, including Mama Rose’s, The Encore, Helen’s, Odette’s, The Stockton Inn, and Bob Egan’s Cabaret Supper Club. She has also appeared as a guest performer in special productions at the Laurie Beechman Theatre and the Metropolitan Room in NYC, Tim McCloone’s Supper Club in Asbury Park, NJ, and Dino’s Backstage in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
In addition to the 2017 Bistro Award for Outstanding Theme Show, Lucille is the recipient of the prestigious Hanson Award, presented each year to one individual by the Manhattan Association of Cabaret and Clubs (MAC) for continued excellence in cabaret.
