About “Witches, Bitches & Divas” featuring Christina Pecce:

Christina Pecce teams up once again with music director Steve Bass and his band to celebrate Witches, Bitches, and Divas! Deemed “truly spellbinding” by NiteLife Exchange, it has been seen on the stages of Feinstein’s/54 Below in NYC, Club Café in Boston, and The Den Theatre in Chicago among others.

Songs from your favorite standards, musicals, and operas are given a fresh spin to keep you enchanted and bewildered. This is a night of cross-over comedy you do NOT want to miss. Celebrate iconic roles, both onstage and off, but beware…this program is sure to put a spell on you!
