Bastille Magnolias – Colleen McHugh

Baguette_000I first met Colleen McHugh in Chicago when she was just beginning to publicly attract attention for her extraordinary singing. An accomplished comedienne and improv performer, Colleen is also blessed with a lovely, powerful voice and excels in heartbreaking and hilarious interpretations of songbook standards. In November of 2008 she started a monthly residency – “Calendar Girl” – at the Duplex in New York. Now in its ninth month, on Monday July 13th, the series will feature  Colleen’s Bastille Day French-themed show. McHugh promises”beautiful music, improvisation, sparkling cocktails, witty banter – a true celebration of all the things you love (and love to hate) about the French.” Featuring songs by Piaf, Bricusse, Porter, Legrand, Gershwin, and more! Special Chicago guests Miriam Plotkin and Chuck Larkin appear in this hilarious, always-sold-out, soignee soiree!
