“Red Hot Mama” is about the legendary performer Sophie Tucker the first lady of show business whose fabulous career spanned sixty years. It contains the music & history of burlesque, vaudeville, Broadway & Las Vegas in a critically acclaimed one-woman musical biography of the entertainment icon, written by & starring Sharon McNight & featuring over two dozen songs made famous by Tucker including composers Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Henderson, DeSylva, & Brown & her 1928 million record seller, Jack Yellen’s “My Yiddishe Mama”. Performances run now through January 29th at the Cinnabar Theater 3333 Petaluma Blvd N. at Skillman Lane, in Petaluma, California. "Red Hot Mama" was developed by Tony Nominee Sharon McNight at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Lucille Lortel’s White Barn Theatre & Santa Fe Stages before playing Off-Broadway for three months. Fierce LGBT ally Sharon McNight has been the forefront in the fight against AIDS since the early eighties & was featured in Randy Shilt's book "And The Band Played On". She was chosen twice as the honorary chair of the San Francisco AIDS Emergency Fund & was one of two heterosexual women chosen as the Grand Marshall of San Francisco’s Gay Pride Parade. Sharon says the greatest day of her life was the day she quit smoking.
