'Dozen Divas’ brings classic Rivers, Streisand, Garland and more to Milford stage

‘Milford Arts Council, in association with Pantochino Productions Inc., will present the first show of their Nite Spot Nights series of cabaret entertainment, “The Dozen Divas” starring Dorothy Bishop, at the Milford Arts Council Saturday, Sept. 12, at 8 p.m.

Bishop evokes Joan Rivers, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, Cher and many others.

The 2015 Milford Arts Council award nominee is a graduate of the Yale University School of Music, launched a career as a lyric soprano singing diva roles from Lucia di Lammermoor to Madame Butterfly in New York, was a guest soloist with New York Pops at Carnegie Hall and toured with Faye Dunaway in the first national Broadway tour of Master Class.

Nite Spot Nights offers six night club style evenings of entertainment. Evoking the feeling of New York City cabaret rooms, the series is a varied collection of musical performances by some of the city’s hottest acts. To enhance the experience, the Center for the Arts will be set with tables and chairs inviting patrons to bring along the food and drink of their choice.

“We are very excited to be working with Pantochino in welcoming such amazing talent to Milford,” said executive director Paige Miglio. “You no longer have to head to the city; we are bringing the city to you.”

Tickets for Nite Spot Nights are $25 and available online at milfordarts.org or by calling 203-878-6647.
