Joanna Murray-Smith’s critically acclaimed one-woman show, starring Bernadette Robinson will return to Brisbane for a strictly limited season from May 16 – May 27.
Currently delighting Sydney audiences in an encore season, Songs For Nobodies had its World Premiere Season in Melbourne in 2010, where it has just finished a sold out encore season, receiving extraordinary reviews. Songs For Nobodies has had similar success in both Sydney and in Brisbane where it played at The Brisbane Powerhouse in 2011.
With direction by Simon Phillips, Robinson plays five ordinary women and five iconic singers, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas. Each ‘nobody’ recounts an intimate tale of how her life was transformed by an encounter with one of the icons.
Robinson seamlessly transforms, with phenomenal control of tone and accent, to bring to life each ‘nobody ‘and each legendary singer. Her voice shifts from the smoky blues of Billie Holiday to the thrilling soprano of Maria Callas, via Garland, Cline and Piaf, with consummate ease.
