The Jewish Legends and Bette Midler And Me to play at Upstairs At The Gatehouse
Aria Entertainment returns to Upstairs At The Gatehouse this September with 2 shows; The Jewish Legends and Bette Midler And Me!
Why did American Jews find such success in the world of entertainment? Because they arrived in America in the late nineteenth century with nothing but a gift to peddle. And what better to peddle than a song, a dance or a comic routine.
This show uniquely explores a century of song, dance and comedy with a nod to some legendary performers such as Streisand, Jolson, Midler, Sophie Tucker, Fanny Brice and Groucho Marx. Song writers include Burt Bacharach.
September 1-12 @ Upstairs At The Gatehouse, Highgate
