Actress, singer, producer and songwriter Rita Wilson is bringing her Liner Notes series to Nashville’s famed Bluebird Cafe for two shows December 12 and 13, 2017. Hit songwriters Liz Rose (Girl Crush), Billy Steinberg (Like A Virgin) and rock and roller Patty Smyth (No Mistakes), will join her for both shows beginning at 9:00pm.
“Songwriters tell stories about who we are and what we feel,” said Wilson. “Being able to bring my show ‘Liner Notes’ with these famed songwriters and their incredible hits to the famed Bluebird Cafe is an honor. Cannot wait to share these stories with you.”
Wilson began the Liner Notes series in 2015 at The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, where she was presented the Distinction in Theater Award at the annual Backstage at the Geffen event in 2009. She is currently nominated for a Broadway World Award for Best Female Cabaret, Large Venue for Liner Notes. For each performance, she was joined by special guests for an evening of songwriters performing and telling the stories behind their songs.
The Bluebird Cafe shows will be performed in-the-round, providing an intimate experience with admission at $25.00 per person. Pre-paid reservations for the show will be available on Friday, November 24 at 8:00am CST at bluebirdcafe.com. There is a $10.00 food/beverage minimum at each seat.
