NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Off her shift in “Waitress” on Broadway, and critically acclaimed for her performances in “The Last Five Years” and “Falsettos,” Betsy Wolfe has established herself as one of musical theatre’s most keenly intelligent performers. Beyond Broadway, she has performed in sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall and in two operas at The Met.
And now, Wolfe is doing a cabaret about the magical, mystical miracle and existential anxiety of show business – but funny! Armed with a high belt and a questionable affinity for casinos, she takes the audience on a romp from cow pasture California to bright-lights-big-city New York to conquer Broadway. With the help of songs by Stephen Sondheim, Stevie Nicks and Jason Robert Brown, she has a lot to talk about. And sing about.
From the woman who was described by her doorman as “very talented, but please keep it down,” and by The New York Times as “having a soaring soprano… and a rock collection,” Betsy Wolfe brings her first cabaret show, “All Bets Are Off” to New Orleans after sold out performances in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Indianapolis and New York City.
Tickets for the Sept. 14 show are available now and include a $75 VIP experience with the opportunity to meet Wolfe backstage. Regular ticket prices range from $35 – $60. You can purchase your seat by calling the box office at 504-522-9321 or visiting www.lepetittheatre.com.
