Event Description

The amazing Lillias White stops short of calling her new cabaret act an open audition for her next big Broadway role. Still, the singer-actress is viewing the show, appropriately titled “The Lillias White Effect,” as a small but personal gesture to theater producers who’ve yet to “really, really embrace the concept of non-traditional casting."



Broadway Legend Lillias White, who nabbed a TONY AWARD for Cy Coleman and Ira Gasman’s “The Life“ and starred to great acclaim in 2010’s “Fela!,” and was on Broadway staring in the powerhouse role of Effie White in "DREAM GIRLS" is set to unleash her power-house voice at  The 801 Supper Club. 


Her show will include songs from Mame,” “Gypsy” and other musicals that she’d like to tackle in the future as well as her hits. The show’s title, White says, is a nod to an experience she had with a weeping fan at the stage door of the Richard Rodgers Theatre during her run in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Similarly, fans of White’s seminal turn as a gritty prostitute in “The Life” will be pleased to know that her signature tune, The Oldest Profession,” will appear in this show.
