About the Event
Shana Farr brings back her critically acclaimed solo show "Whistling Away The Dark: The Songbook of Julie Andrews" with a few new additions. She has performed this show to sold-out audiences in New York, London, St. Louis, Tallahassee, and next up in Boca Raton, FL at Lynn University. She has received stellar reviews for every performance, including a 5-Star review for her week-long run in London.
Don't miss the opportunity to see Shana Farr and Music Director, Jon Weber bring these songs to life in what the Wall Street Journal says is an "EXCELLENT Julie Andrews tribute."
Inspired by the rich collection of lyrics and melodies that have become synonymous with Julie Andrews, award-winning songstress, Shana Farr weaves together an evening of songs that represent not only great American standards by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe, the Gershwins, and the Sherman Brothers, but also beautiful, lesser known numbers by Henry Mancini, Arthur Schwartz, Noel Coward, Jimmy van Heusen and more.
Ms. Farr brings her own voice and interpretations to these timeless songs that help her pay tribute to a performer she holds in high regard. She engages the audience the minute she steps onto the stage, whether it be in a cabaret venue or in a concert hall, and carries them with her on an inspirational musical journey.
