Theatre attendance on Super Bowl Sunday always takes a dip, and those might have been Carolyn Griffin’s thoughts when she came up with the idea a few years ago to offer a special ticket deal, and, giving a nod to the stay-at-homes, throw in what is now her famous chips and dip.
Word’s out about the trip to Birdland known as Ladies Swing the Blues. Debbie Jackson calls it a dream cast – “Roz White reflects the deep gravitas of Billie Holiday, Lori Williams scats up a storm as Ella Fitzgerald, Yvette Spears uses her sonorous warbling gifts as Sarah Vaughan, and Sandy Bainum carries the classy sophistication of Peggy Lee” and “Anthony Manough as “Bird” is a song and dance man with charm galore.”
Performances are selling out, so this Sunday’s tickets at $25 will be an offer that won’t be repeated. To reserve, call 703-548-9044 and use the Code “Super Bowl”.
