BOP STOP at The Music Settlement is Cleveland's premier listening room: an intimate, acoustically pristine performance venue with sweeping views of Lake Erie.
April 20 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Cleveland Stage Alliance (CSA) presents “The Divas: Radio Royalty,” at the BOP STOP!
In “The Divas: Radio Royalty,” CSA will take on some of the biggest names (and biggest personalities) in pop music history. From legends like Aretha and Madonna to current stars like Adele and Beyonce with some Whitney and Mariah sprinkled in along the way, these icons will provide the inspiration for this one night only event. Some of Northeast Ohio’s top theater talent comes together to perform new and classic arrangements of familiar tunes accompanied by a live band.
“The Divas: Radio Royalty” is the sixth concert in the CSA series that celebrates various beloved aspects of pop culture in a festive evening of song. Following the current trend set in New York by such popular series’ as “Broadway Sings,” “54 Sings” and others, “CSA Presents…” will utilize a rotating cast of local talent to perform material outside of the musical theater canon, with a theatrical flair!
The concert is produced by CSA founder Eric Fancher and local actor/director Joanna May Hunkins, and music directed by Lawrence Wallace. Fancher has appeared onstage at Beck Center for the Arts, Lakeland Civic Theatre, Blank Canvas Theatre, Cain Park and Near West Theatre. Hunkins is the associate director of The Musical Theater Project. She directed last year’s critically acclaimed production of Godspell at Cain Park and has worked as an actor and director throughout the Cleveland area. Wallace has music directed at Near West Theatre, Blank Canvas Theatre and True North Cultural Arts.
Singers appearing in “The Divas: Radio Royalty” include Malik Akil, Kelvette Beacham, Tasha Brandt, Phil Carroll, Jessie Cope Miller, Carlos Cruz, Ellis C. Dawson III, Kelcie Nicole Dugger, Noah Hrbek, Kevin Kelly, Kate Leigh Michalski, Kristin Netzband, Treva Offutt, and Meg Wittman. Fancher and Hunkins will also perform and co-host the evening.
