The Musical Stage Company’s signature concert features the hit songs of these two pioneering female singer/songwriters, interpreted by stars from Stratford, Shaw, Broadway and London’s West End.  Music director Reza Jacobs’ wildly imaginative arrangements captivate at this ‘unmissable’ event.

To get this much talent in one beautiful venue in one night and then use it as a corporate hosting opportunity… there’s not an event in the city that beats it.
