Every now and again we encounter an actor/actress and know they were born to play a role. Such is the case with YouTube sensation Christina Bianco who will make her Broadway debut next season in the revival of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright. Elite theatricals is very proud to be part of the producing team of this unique and heart wrenching story.
The play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother Mari. Desperately missing her dead father, Little Voice spends her time locked in her bedroom listening to his old record collection and perfecting astonishing impersonations of famous divas including Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Dusty Springfield. When Mari starts dating small time club agent Ray Say, she thinks he’s her last chance for a better life. When Ray Say hears Little Voice sing, he thinks she’s his ticket to the big time. Little Voice just wants a normal life and to be loved. Not everyone is going to get what they want. http://m.playbill.com/news/article/rise-and-fall-of-little-voice-optioned-as-broadway-vehicle-for-youtube-sensation-340048
