RED HOT MAMA - The Sophie Tucker Story is the story of the first lady of show business, the "Last of the Red Hot Mamas", whose remarkable career spanned sixty years. It contains the music and history of burlesque, vaudeville, Broadway, and Las Vegas in a critically acclaimed one-woman musical biography of the entertainment legend, written by and starring Sharon McNight, and featuring over two dozen songs made famous by Tucker, including composers Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Henderson, DeSylva, & Brown, and her 1928 million record seller, Jack Yellen's "My Yiddishe Mama".
Red Hot Mama was developed at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Lucille Lortel's White Barn Theatre, and Santa Fe Stages before playing Off-Broadway for three months.
