A diva is a celebrated female singer and a woman of outstanding talent. The Barnyard Theatre presents five of its best female singers in a tribute to the world’s greatest divas. Divas Who Rock features a captivating 10-piece cast that pay tribute to the divas of today, pop divas of the eighties and nineties, disco divas of the seventies and the soul divas of the sixties. The show features seven decades of music starting in the 1950s with Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend by Marilyn Monroe and moves on to tributes to sixties divas, including Carole King, Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. The seventies and eighties are saluted with mind-blowing tributes to Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Cher, Whitney Houston and Tina Turner. In the second half we experience the funky nineties with tributes to divas such as Alanis Morissette, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. Divas Who Rock features a broad selection of music for all tastes – from Brenda Fassie to Sarah Brightman – whilst current day pop stars are saluted with rocking tributes to Lady Gaga, Pink, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. Divas Who Rock is about power, versatility & the music that has inspired generations and surpassed all boundaries. These amazing divas will make your hair stand up, get you rocking in no time, and leave you screaming for more!
