Signature Theatre broadcasts solid of ‘Soul Divas Reprise’ cabarets


Signature Theatre broadcasts that Signature favorites Awa Sal Secka (Gun and Powder, Blackbeard) and Shayla S. Simmons (After Nighttime, Dreamgirls) will carry out in Soul Divas Reprise, impressed by way of the sold-out cabaret from 2019 devoted to the tune of acclaimed musical divas from Aretha to Whitney to Tina. The cabaret will likely be music-directed by way of Mark G. Meadows, Signature’s Director of Cabarets. Soul Divas Reprise runs June 27 – July 9, 2023, in Signature’s ARK Theatre. Tickets are $38 and may also be bought on-line at SigTheatre.org or by way of calling 703 820 9771.

Signature’s Director of Cabarets Mark G. Meadows stated, “Soul Divas Reprise will convey each bit of fireside and fervour we introduced the primary time round, and extra. This set record, those iconic she-roes, those singers, and this band, will go away you feeling increased, soulfully happy, and craving for a better love.”
