MILFORD, PA — Ticket holders for the opening night performance at the Milford Readers and Writers Festival will see Amanda McBroom, who has been called “the greatest cabaret performer of her generation,” at the Milford Theater & Performing Arts Center on Friday, September 22 at 7 p.m.
Her performance kicks off the sixth annual festival.
McBroom’s name drew national attention when Bette Midler’s version of Amanda’s song “The Rose” hit number one worldwide in 1979, but it was Amanda’s performance of her own song on the Golden Globes—she won—and on the Grammys and the Tonight Show that launched her career as a singer and songwriter.
McBroom starred in many U.S. and European musical theater productions, including “Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris” and on Broadway in “Seesaw.” McBroom created her own musical “Heartbeats,” and her latest musical “A Woman of Will” made its off-Broadway debut in 2005. She recently celebrated the release of “Voices,” her sixth recording on Gecko, the label she established in 1985.
