Everyone's favorite legendary Las Vegas lounge singer, Trudy Carmichael has LIVED (and nearly died) LOVED (and often lost) more than most mere mortals, but she gets through all of her trials and tribulations through the art of song!  Based upon an audience suggestion of a made-up One-Woman Show title and their own personal objects, she weaves together an entirely original musically improvised One-Woman Show ON THE SPOT detailing the triumphs and challenges of her sensational, storied past accompanied by Frank Spitznagel on the keys and Steve Whyte on percussion!
