The Invisible Theatre Presents

Polly Bergen

                In Concert

A Valentine Cabaret Fundraiser

Polly Bergen has been dazzling audiences for more than five decades, from her early days as a film, movie, television and recording star to her recent appearances in the hit Broadway musicals, Follies and Cabaret.  Last year, she was the toast of New York with two stellar performances: her critically acclaimed, sold out nightclub review at Feinstein’s and her Tony-nominated role in Follies.  Her performance of “I’m Still Here” brought the house down at every show!  This is an evening you won’t want to miss!

“Polly Bergen pours voice, heart into songs ... class personified ... an incandescent performer!”
