Voted “Best Solo Show in California Theatre 2010” and nominated “Best Special Theatre Event in L.A. 2011” by BroadwayWorld.com, “Remembering The Ladies” is a Multi-Media Tribute to the Legendary Ladies of Music, Stage and Screen through song, story and film clips. Not by doing impersonations, but in her own unique style, Toni Morrell salutes such Legendary Ladies as Judy Garland, Edith Piaf, Shirley Bassey, Marlene Dietrich, Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, Liza Minnelli, Lena Horne, Cher, Bette Midler, Peggy Lee, Debbie Reynolds and others. Toni’s great singing voice, quirky English humor and story telling combine with film clips to create a loving homage to the great female entertainers of all time.
Toni has performed throughout the United States, Great Britain and Europe, starring on prime time television in Italy and costarring twice with Broadway legend Carol Channing. She can be heard worldwide as the spokesperson for the Pixar/Walt Disney Company’s Tinker Bell and Disney Fairies motion pictures. She is also the voice on radio commercials for the luxury auto line, Jaguar.
Providing the brilliant onstage technical and musical direction for “Remembering the Ladies” is Toni’s husband and multi-keyboard “wizard,” David Dial. David has served as Musical Director and/or Technical Director for several Broadway musicals and has worked with such headliners as Peter Allen, Burt Bacharach and Carol Channing. He is one of the leading “electronic orchestrators” in the business, a renowned composer and music producer.
“Remembering The Ladies” is directed by celebrity television producer, Karen G. Cadle (“Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, “The Whoopi Goldberg Show”). Karen has worked with many of the revered Hollywood legends “remembered” in this production, including Audrey Hepburn, Lana Turner, Doris Day, Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, June Allyson, Esther Williams and many more. Ms. Cadle’s personal and unique insight on “life with the legends” lends a fascinating and truly unique appeal to this show.
