Broadway Barbara LIVE!

Broadway Barbara LIVE!

7:00pm - Saturday, Jul 27, 2024

Stage legend.
Social media sensation (@BroadwayBarbaraOfficial).
Subtly understated international entertainment titan.

Broadway Barbara is thrilled to be making her Canadian debut at the Rio Theatre following a string of raucous, sold-out performances in Palm Springs, New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Australia!This definitive Broadway Barbara experience is packed to the gills with songs, stories, and even a Fosse dance move or two. You won’t believe your eyes (or ears) as Barbara over-shares her way through a whirlwind tour of her life and career, with ribald show biz tales and comedic interpretations of classic Broadway tunes.

"A dash of Liza with a Z, a splash of Patti LuPone, and a drive that comes from knowing that there’s no one who compares, Broadway Barbara is bitingly funny, cutting to the heart of the quirks of Broadway and musical theatre." (Glam Adelaide)

"The show gifted us moments where Judy-Garland-esque gravitas could rub against wackiness worthy of Lucille Ball." (Australian Arts Review)

"Barbara, is original and laugh-out-loud funny. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed that hard." (Theatre Pizzazz NYC)
