Cabaret, classic showtunes, and comedy—what more do you need? Absolutely nothing, as far as Victoria Gordon is considered. She plans to bring all three to VICTORIA GORDON – LIVE AT THE HOLLYWOOD FRINGE, playing at the OMR Theatre at The Complex Hollywood.
Gordon, a lifelong performer who holds the distinction of being the youngest-ever soloist at Walt Disney Concert Hall, will write, direct, produce, and perform in an old-school cabaret featuring beloved musical theater songs and hilarious observational comedy vignettes. The hour-long show stars Gordon and includes a three-piece band. Stylistically, the show takes after the traditional acts of great Broadway performers, with Bernadette Peters and Jane Krakowski among the main inspirations.
A version of the show, VICTORIA GORDON – LIVE AT THE EDYE, debuted to rave reviews and a sold-out crowd in September 2018; however, Gordon describes the version that will play at Fringe as “a completely new show. Even though some of the songs are the same, the stories that make up the show are all different. And there’s new music, too, so there’s something fresh for everyone.”
“Hollywood Fringe is an incredible exhibition of talent, and I’m honored to count myself among the performers participating in the tenth anniversary Fringe season,” she says, adding, “I look forward to sharing this deeply personal show with such a special audience.”
