Tina Turner Tribute – starring Cookie Watkins

Tickets Coming Soon

We regret to inform you that the Cookie Watkins show scheduled for Saturday, April 25th, 2020 has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution due to the Coronavirus. Refunds will be administered at the point of purchase. 

 

Cookie Watkins brings more than a celebrity impersonation to her performance with the award-winning live tribute show Legends in Concert. Music has been Cookie’s mainstay since Duke Ellington brought her onstage to warble out a few tunes at the ripe age of fourteen. The Duke gave Cookie a coming-out party at the Rainbow Room when she turned eighteen. She even warranted a special mention in his book “Music Is My Mistress.”

Known to Underground music fans as “Iron Throat”, Cookie admits to being highly influenced by R&B legends like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Bobby Womack and the legend she so enthusiastically tributes, Tina Turner.

No stranger to Broadway, Cookie also performed in hit stage musicals like “Guys & Dolls,’ “Sweet Charity,” and “Hair” before touring with the original cast of “Beehive” and Marie Wilson.

Cookie allows the audience to savor the saucy effects of Tina’s “Higher” before a seamless transition to the throaty “Better Be Good to Me” followed by “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”. But Cookie and her audience know nothing tops the high-energy stand-up hit and closer “Proud Mary,” and that is exactly what Cookie does Tina—“Proud!”
