From MTC Media Release

"Bernadette Robinson’s renowned power of transformation in evoking the great divas of our time is the stuff of legend. Her sell-out one-woman shows include You Might As Well Leave, Calling all Angels and Patsy Cline: Her Songs, Her Story. In Pennsylvania Avenue, audiences are treated to a new collection of iconic singers whose relationships with the White House spanned concert recitals to friendships, Presidential endorsements to tabloid speculation.

"With Bernadette Robinson’s unique talent in mind, Joanna Murray-Smith has created a seamless narrative entwined with music that blends show business and political history.
The final box is packed and the door is open, but Harper is not quite ready to leave. Having worked in the East Wing since the first weeks of the Kennedy presidency, there are just too many memories holding her back. For forty years, she watched history being made. And listened to it being made too – all those singers who sang for the President, defining the times while creating their own unforgettable moment."
