Have you ever had a chance meeting with a show business superstar? A hit show on the subject, first produced by the Melbourne Theatre Company, is about to tour Australia. It’s about five anonymous women and their separate brushes with iconic divas Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas. The show is called Songs for Nobodies and was written by Joanna Murray-Smith especially for the performer Bernadette Robinson.
On the eve of its Sydney’s opening, Bernadette Robinson spoke to Neil Litchfield.
