sophie tucker's one night stand - new end 05
Enjoy a rollercoaster ride through the highs and lows of Sophie Tucker’s life in a show bursting with song, cellulite and kosher comedy. Sue Kelvin stars in this biographical bonanza featuring the wit, wisdom and sock–it–to–em songs of the original Red Hot Mama. Big, bold and brassy, Sophie reigned over American showbiz for over 60 years. She outsold Al Jolson in the 20s and 30s with hits like My Yiddeshe Mama, and Some of These Days. More recently she was the inspiration for Mama Morton, a part Sue played to great acclaim in the West End production of Chicago! The show co–stars Russell Churney (accompanist for Julian Clary and Fascinating Aida) as Sophie’s side kick Ted Shapiro.
