I Wanna Be Rosie

by Bev Petty

directed by Valerie Gardner Rives

“I Wanna Be Rosie”, a new work by Bev Petty, is an impressionist portrait of America’s Sweetheart “Girl Singer” Rosemary Clooney. This cabaret revue takes a rollercoaster ride through Rosie’s life, which like those “fabulous fifties tunes” hides more sensuality, sadness and shrewdness than it shows on the surface. The laughter is real as two younger “White Christmas” Rosies and two older “Much Wiser” Rosies meet at a party and the pageboys and poodle skirts fly! “I Wanna Be Rosie” is a love song for and about Rosie Clooney. A peek behind the glamour of stardom reveals the real woman remembered as “the best friend a song ever had.”
