Deborah Boily: Songs I Was Born to Sing

Deborah Boily: Songs I Was Born to Sing

by Deborah Boily & Stewart Zuckerbrod

STARRING DEBORAH BOILY

Cabaret artist Deborah Boily - well known to Houston audiences for Piaf in Vienna and her Houston Press Award-winning performance in Blood Brothers - returns to Stages with the debut of a new solo show, Songs I was Born To Sing. In this unforgettable musical journey we follow Debbie, and her love of music, from her first audition in her hometown of Baton Rouge, to a stage career in New York, and across the ocean to Parisian nightclubs where she finds her soul as a chanteuse. Inspired by her idol, Julie Andrews, she performs show tunes from such favorite musicals as South Pacific, The Threepenny Opera and The Music Man, as well as a few of her signature French pieces, and some rarely heard musical gems. You'll take delight when Deborah performs the numbers she was truly "born to sing" with passion, pathos and her first-class voice.

What do you do when the rest of the world wants you to sit down and shut up—and you think they might be right?

But soon the festivities give way to a powerful confrontation between privilege, social responsibility and America’s unrelenting demand for success.

May 18 - June 26 2016

REGIONAL PREMIERE

On the eve of their deployment to Vietnam, three Marines set out to take San Francisco by storm in an evening of drinking and debauchery. But when Eddie woos an ungainly waitress to win a cruel bet with his buddies, she rewrites the rules of the game and opens his heart to new possibilities. With a soaring score from rising Broadway stars Pasek and Paul, Dogfight is at once tender and brutal in its look at innocence, loss and redemption.
