People's Light presents the Northlight Theatre Production of Songs for Nobodies

A one-woman powerhouse performance weaves the music of Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf, and Maria Callas throughout a mosaic of stories told by the everyday women who encountered these musical icons. Featuring favorites like "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Crazy," and "Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do," Songs for Nobodies celebrates the healing power of song. Featuring the "flat-out spectacular" (Wall Street Journal) Bethany Thomas!
