BlackRock will be kicking off its jam packed February with BROADWAY GOLD, a musical cabaret spun together by Signature Theatre’s own Tracy Lynn Olivera. On Friday, February 1 at 8:00 pm, Olivera and her distinctive silken sound will bring to life the golden age of Broadway, with songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Julie Andrews, Judy Garland, and many more.
Backed by an extraordinary live band, Olivera’s incredible voice runs the gamut, recalling the likes of Barbara Cook as she styles glorious songs from America’s favorite art form into compelling moments in time. Olivera’s contagiously buoyant personality coupled with her enthralling storytelling will leave a lasting impact on the audience as she weaves her way through classic Broadway ballads like “I Feel Pretty” (West Side Story), “People Will Say We’re In Love” (Oklahoma), “Johnny One Note” (Babes in Arms), “On the Street Where You Live” (My Fair Lady).
Tracy Lynn Olivera is a product of the prestigious Catholic University of America where she received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. After graduation she returned to her alma mater for a brief time to teach. She has also garnered teaching experience as the Performance Institute Director at Levine Music School, the Head of Vocal Division at Signature Theatre, and the Voice and Music Director at ATMTC. She has been recognized numerous times over the course of her career for her outstanding performances in the D.C. metropolitan area, amassing nine Helen Hayes Awards nominations and winning in 2017 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical for the role of Lizzie in 110 in the Shade, and in 2018 for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Musical for the role of Charlotte in A Little Night Music.
