(Dead) Funny Women
Jessica Walker & Joseph Atkins
Originally an opera singer, writer-performer Jessica Walker now creates distinctive music theatre projects, many of which celebrate forgotten voices in entertainment. Her latest, (Dead) Funny Women, looks at the great ladies of musical comedy from Fanny Brice to Elaine Stritch.
