Event Details

Jennifer Leigh Warren came to the attention of the music world when she originated the role of Crystal in the New York production of Little Shop of Horrors, followed by performances in the original Broadway cast of Marie Christine at Lincoln Center, and Big River, where Roger Miller wrote the show-stopping song “How Blest We Are” especially for her. She is an Ovation Award Winner, Backstage Garland Award-winner, and won two Broadway World Awards in the same season for her portrayal of the fairy godmother in the first U.S. pantomime production A Cinderella Christmas, and her one-woman concert event Diamonds are Forever. Rubicon audiences will remember Jennifer’s lush, nuanced stylings and big beautiful belt from Lonesome Traveler, in which she also performed Off Broadway. In this intimate new concert, created with renowned musical director Gerald Sternbach, Jennifer puts her own fresh spin on legendary songs of Shirley Bassey, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and other women who inspired and influenced Jennifer. Songs include “God Bless the Child,” “Little Girl Blue,” “Bill Bailey,” “All of Me” and “Big Spender.”
