Singer-comedian Brooke Davis debuts Late to the Party at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York’s West Bank Café, on Saturday, Feb. 24, Sunday, Feb. 25 and Thursday, March 1. Performances are at 7:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. respectively.
Late to the Party is about a big life that refuses to shut off the lights and close the door. The show, directed by Barbara Grecki, chronicles Davis’ journey as she chases her passion to become a performer in the Big Apple. It’s about learning the ropes once she arrives in New York and coping with big city agents and auditions, as well as humorous upheavals in family relationships. Davis also re-lives the ups-and-downs of her journey to the Big Apple — from a fairy tale childhood in Arizona, filled with horseback riding and choir singing, to becoming a suburban soccer mom, to spending a lifetime in the arts. With Musical Director/Arranger/Pianist Darren R. Cohen, Davis takes audiences on an adventure that features songs by Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Randy Newman, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and many more.
A performer, producer, educator and advocate, Davis created and produced children’s theatre with her own Arizona Stage Company as well as with Music Theatre Arizona, a professional theatre in Tucson, which she founded while continuing to perform close to her home in the desert southwest. In 2006, her dream of a post-suburban acting career took off. She landed a role in the hit show, Menopause the Musical and has since performed in numerous plays and musicals in repertory and regional theatres.
