Sally Bowles

 is so excited to be making her Altadena debut as the mysterious and fascinating Sally Bowles! You may have seen her haunting Hollywood Blvd at Escape Hotel’s Room Number 13 where she has been singing for the last 100 years. The last musical she did was Sunday in the Park with George at CCAE in Escondido. She played Dot opposite the wonderful Will Blum and it was one of the highlights of her life. She also played Carrie White in the mythical immersive production of Carrie the Musical that played in La Mirada and at the Historic Los Angeles theater in DTLA. She writes music as well and has two albums released under the sobriquet Water Torture! They are intentionally lofi, inspired by a wide variety of subjects. She would like to dedicate this performance to her friend Heather who first showed her Cabaret on dvd many many years ago and to her beautiful twins Nola and Ben that should be arriving any minute now!
