Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles celebrates Women’s History Month with “I’m with Her” featuring special guest artist, Tony Award-nominee Mary Bridget Davies (Broadway’s and Pasadena Playhouse’s “A Night with Janis Joplin”). GMCLA’s music director and conductor Ernest H. Harrison conducts the second concert of GMCLA’s Season 44. “I’m with Her” concerts will be held at Glendale’s Alex Theatre on Saturday, March 25 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 26 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are now on sale at gmcla.org.
GMCLA’s “I’m with Her” salutes the music of boundary-breaking women: Aretha, Madonna, Beyoncé, Gaga, Lizzo, Demi Lovato, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, Gloria Estefan, Gloria Gaynor, Big Mama Morton, Christina Aguilera, Joan Jett, Alanis Morrisette, Sarah Bareilles and Lesley Gore. Extraordinary Tony Award nominee Mary Bridget Davies of Broadway and Pasadena Playhouse’s “A Night with Janis Joplin” returns to Southern California to perform iconic songs by the first queen of rock and roll, Janis Joplin. The exquisite VOX Femina joins the chorus for a world premiere by Grammy Award winner Sharon Farber.
GMCLA also pays tribute to legendary songwriter and GMCLA friend and supporter Diane Warren. The concerts will feature several of Warren’s hits, including “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “Rhythm of the Night,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” and “I’ll Fight.” They will also honor the trailblazing, first-all women Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
“I’m with Her is as much a statement of solidarity with our sisters as it is a programming concept. From day one, GMCLA has marched, sung at rallies, and always been part of the women’s movement,” said GMCLA executive Director and producer Lou Spisto.
“I’m with Her” will be presented Saturday, March 25 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 26 at 2 p.m. at the Alex Theatre, 216 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale. Tickets start at $29 and are available at gmcla.org. For information on visiting the Alex Theatre, visit alextheatre.org.
