'A Star is Reborn' as Sherman Takes Supper Club Stage
Local NJ Songstress and Friends Bring Broadway to Asbury Park
By: Across My Desk
This time last year, Sherman (a Monmouth County native turned Internationally renowned singer, dancer, fitness guru and fashion model) redirected her 'rock goddess' persona, for which she is best recognized, into a wholly new, powerful stage presence focusing on songs from 'The Great White Way'.
"People are still shocked I 'do Broadway'! What they don't know is that Broadway and, more specifically, Radio City Music Hall were where I got my first breaks. These songs are just as much a part of me as my Rock shows, Disco dance nights, or Diva Tributes," shared Sherman, who recently closed a Broadway showcase of CALLING ALL DIVAS (of which she is a co-creator).
Should you have missed last June's multiple standing ovations production of BROADWAY & BEYOND, have no fear! Lisa and friends are back to perform hits from stage favorites, including Les Miserables, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Who's Tommy, Evita, Chicago, and more.
Returning to join Ms. Sherman onstage is regional and local favorite, Kristin (Grassi) Cochran (of Brian Kirk & The Jirks renown) who has enjoyed an impressive 15 year plus career as a lead and background vocalist. These two incredible ladies will also have aid from very Special Guest, Academy and Golden Globe Award-winning singer/songwriter, Franke Previte (best known for [I've Had] The Time of My Life and Hungry Eyes from Dirty Dancing) performing both of these crowd pleasers as well as memorable hits from his band Franke and The Knockouts.
Several other talents will be at Ms. Sherman's side, including Benny Gramm, Frosty Lawson, John Micco, Ralph Notaro, John Martin, and Bob Himmelberger.
Although BROADWAY & BEYOND is certain to take stage regionally very soon once again, don't miss this latest, greatest iteration at McLoone's perfectly intimate Supper Club atmosphere.
Doors open at 6:30 pm for dinner with the performance beginning at 8 pm sharp. McLoone's Supper Club, 1200 Ocean Ave, Asbury Park, NJ 07712 - www.TimMcloonesSupperClub.com or (732) 774-1155 for more information.
