For one weekend only, the Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) is bringing a cabaret performance featuring Broadway’s Christine Pedi. There will be two performances on April 9 at 7:30 p.m. and April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the LDTC interim theater located at the Outlets at Silverthorne.
Chrisitne Pedi, also known as “The Lady of 1000 Voices,” can be seen using many of them in this hilarious off-Broadway revue “NEWSical the Musical.” Pedi first discovered her talent for multiple personalities through her long association with the legendary off-Broadway revue “Forbidden Broadway.” She has performed in companies all over the world including London’s West End, Japan, Los Angeles, New York City and Singapore. She received a Drama Desk nomination for her work in “Forbidden Hollywood” as well as an LA Ovation and NAACP Award.
After recently returning from a sold-out run of her award-winning solo show “Great Dames” in London, Pedi is excited for her trip to Summit County.
“I am flattered to have been asked to perform in Summit County and hopeful that everyone there has a heightened sense of humor,” said Pedi in a statement. “I know it’s going to be stunning and a welcome change from the view out my window of the New York Port Authority terminal.”
Originating in 19th century Paris, cabarets originally showcased poets and artists performing in tight spaces for audiences reveling in their one-of-a-kind comedy, burlesque and even sociopolitical satire.
Today, cabaret is once again finding its footing among crowds seeking a more intimate and meaningful performance experience.
Cabaret is different from a fully produced musical theater performance, or even a musical revue, because the performer herself or himself is part of the presentation.
“Cabarets allow me to tell stories through song and become a vast array of characters all in one evening,” Pedi said. “The song choices are all mine and I control the direction we go in artistically. There is no end to the songs and songwriters I want to sing and cabaret is the perfect way to get to all of them — eventually.”
LOTS OF LAUGHS
The Lake Dillon Theatre Company Cabaret Series offers concert engagements throughout the year celebrating the music of Broadway and beyond while introducing Summit County to local and New York-based professional artists.
Audiences can expect “a lot of laughs, classic song writing and heart,” said Pedi.
Tickets start at $28 and can be purchased at lakedillontheatre.org or by calling (970) 513-9386.
