A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

“Statuesque singer Meghan Murphy, who has hair the color of merlot and a big voice that can be brassy, soulful, or plaintive as the occasion merits…The results are funny and heartwarming without getting cynical or schmaltzy, owing to Murphy’s considerable charisma, jolly shamelessness, and, at times, vulnerability. Highly recommended.” –Chicago Reader

Songstress powerhouse Meghan “Big Red” Murphy has taken the world by storm! Come see what all the fuss is about in an evening of songs, stories, sexiness and sass by the diva herself! “A sparkling redhead with a dynamite voice,” (Chicago Sun Times), a razor-sharp wit, and a stage presence full of Old Hollywood glamour, Big Red will have you laughing, crying and begging for more! From pop to jazz, blues to folk, soul to showtunes, she’ll sing ’em all and turn you into her next biggest fan! She’s an old broad with a new twist. So come on down for a brassy, bawdy, boozy good time! Big voice. Big laughs. Big Red.

Joining Big Red is her long time accompanist Jimmy Morehead (Music Director of the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus; The Wiz, Theater Wit) on piano, Louis Tucci  (Dear World, York Theater; A Comedy of Errors, Hartford Stage) on bass and guitar, and Jeff Roberts (Kinky Boots 1st Nat. Tour, Barrington Stage) on drums. Special guest star Michael Buchannan (Book of Mormon 1st Nat. Tour, Broadway: Addams FamilyCrybaby) will also join.
