FEMME FATALE

the 8th in our 2018-19 Center Series

Sunday, April 14  3:00pm

Femme Fatale: Music, Movies & Mayhem, starring Laura Ellis, is a multimedia show combining song, dance and vintage film clips to create a one of a kind experience.

Film noir comes to the musical stage in Femme Fatale, a show simmering with the music of silver screen sirens, set in a mixed-media story line of intrigue and double-cross. Starring singer Laura Ellis and characters depicted on film, Femme Fatale evokes the times of black and white movies rife with con artists, gullible marks, and memorable music. A blend of cinematic wizardry and live performance, Femme Fatale is a clever homage to the Film Noir genre and its sultry singers, Rita Hayworth, Ida Lupino, and Jane Russell.

Femme Fatale is the brainchild of lead performer, Laura Ellis, veteran of stage and broadcast performances. Alan Paul of The Manhattan Transfer describes Ellis as “the consummate performer whose command of the stage is truly mesmerizing to an audience…Meshing together vintage films and live music, Laura has created a wonderfully entertaining theatrical experience truly worth seeing.”
