YOU MAKE ME LAUGH! A musical portrait to America’s Comedic Sweetheart: Gilda Radner
Starring FRANCESCA AMARI Music Director – Wayne Abravanel
A musical biography of Gilda: her life, her loves, her peeves, her rise to stardom, her marriage to Gene Wilder, her battles … all lovingly and laughingly told through song and Gilda’s own words!
Francesca Amari has been touring the country the last 3 years with her newest cabaret show, YOU MAKE ME LAUGH: A Love Song to Gilda Radner, premiering it in 2011 at a 10- day festival for Gilda’s Club West MI, and sharing the schedule w/ Betty White, Margaret Cho & more. She has raised more than $1,000 for Gilda’s Clubs and cancer support organizations whenever she performs it. She is one of the creators and performers of a brand new, hit show called “Palm Springs JUMP!” which pays tribute to the old glamour of Palm Springs and the Hollywood stars who have lived and performed there.
