BlackRock will be kicking off its jam-packed February with Broadway Gold, a musical cabaret spun together by Signature Theatre’s own Tracy Lynn Olivera. On Friday, February 1 at 8 PM, Olivera and her distinctive silken sound will bring to life the golden age of Broadway, with songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Julie Andrews, Judy Garland, and many more. DC Theater Arts readers can get 15% off tickets by using code “DCMTA” at purchase.
Backed by an extraordinary live band, Olivera’s incredible voice runs the gamut, recalling the likes of Barbara Cook as she styles glorious songs from America’s favorite art form into compelling moments in time. Olivera’s contagiously buoyant personality coupled with her enthralling storytelling will leave a lasting impact on the audience as she weaves her way through classic Broadway ballads like “I Feel Pretty” (West Side Story), “People Will Say We’re In Love” (Oklahoma), “Johnny One Note” (Babes in Arms), “On the Street Where You Live” (My Fair Lady).

After graduation, she returned to her alma mater for a brief time to teach. She has also garnered teaching experience as the Performance Institute Director at Levine Music School, the Head of Vocal Division at Signature Theatre, and the Voice and Music Director at ATMTC.
