Aretha Franklin: Queen of Soul

Chicago’s Award-winning “Dreamgirl”
Rain Date Sun, 9/06
(there is a 2 ticket minimum for this performance)

“Show-Stopping: Her Astonishing voice and fierce acting chops should catapult her to stardom”Chicago Sun-Times

Award-winning Chicago “Dreamgirl” Donica Lynn triumphs in an uplifting homage to the legendary Aretha Franklin. Lynn earned critical acclaim, as well as Chicago’s Jeff Award and Black Theatre Alliance Award for her heart-wrenching performance as Effie in Dreamgirls. Chicago Tribune named her among the Chicagoans of the Year, citing “Lynn has stepped up to Chicago stardom.” Most amazingly, Lynn is a two-time brain tumor survivor currently battling a third cancerous tumor. Lynn’s stories of perseverance are an inspiring match for Aretha’s soul-stirring hits including, “Respect,” “Think,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”
