Jana Robbins
GYPSY IN MY SOUL in concert at Gettysburg College

"Jana Robbins has had a colorful Broadway career as an actress and singer; now she has capsulized it into a thoroughly entertaining, warm-hearted cabaret hour, packed with songs and lively reminiscences. One of her most popular roles was Mazeppa, the sexy stripper "with a gimmick" in the Tyne Daly production of Gypsy; Jana was also Daly's standby. In her cabaret performance, she relives her experiences through several of the show's numbers, such as Everything's Coming Up Roses, Small World, You'll Never Get Away From Me and Together, Wherever We Go – singing and acting them so well that it seems as if her original co-performers were still on stage with her. Among her other top numbers are a moving My Mother Was a Singer, a graphic Zip, and a powerful version of I'm Still Here. Performing unmiked, Jana fills the room easily with her vibrant personality. Doyle Newmeyer shines with fine musical and vocal accompaniment."
