Julia Francis: The Icing on the Cake, A Selection of Hand-Baked Cabaret Cookies
March 2, 2023
Julia Francis, soon to be graduate of Wagner College Theatre, makes her 54 Below and New York City solo concert debut in The Icing on the Cake, A Selection of Hand-Baked Cabaret Cookies, a cabaret chronicling her experience as a college theatre major during a worldwide pandemic. Featuring music from the works of Ryan Scott Oliver, Stephen Sondheim, Ethan Carlson, Andrew Lloyd Webber, as well as many of her own personal favorites-Julia tells the story of what it means to hold onto your art in the midst of chaos, uncertainty, and despair. She has taken the last 3 years of her life and turned it into a provocative performance that is bound to not only touch hearts in the most profound of ways but serve to remind us all why holding onto our artistic endeavors is perhaps the most courageous thing we could ever do.
Joined by Michelle Siemens. Accompanied by Giovanni Longo.

“Julia carries with her huge dreams and a growth mentality that is dynamically prepared for the most rigorous environments. She’s set in her dreams and stands grateful for every moment that she gets to grow, to make herself stronger, and to take on the world in a more dynamic way, as both an artist and performer.”
