Bonnie Sher sings, dances, lights up the stage and holds the room in her hands. And why not, she learned from the master himself – the late Sammy Davis, Jr. For many years, Bonnie had the good fortune to be the protégé of the late Sammy Davis, Jr., which provided her with the incredible opportunity of working clubs & engagements around the world for over twenty years, until his death.
Bonnie Sher is no stranger to the stage, starting her career as a child touring in The Sound of Music with Theodore Bikel & Florence Henderson. The old Cotton Club was the venue for High Tea, an acclaimed Off-Broadway musical in which she starred opposite of legendary Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer, LaVern Baker. Bonnie made her television debut as a teen on “The Barbara McNair Show” & continued to work on several TV shows including a role opposite Billy Crystal on “Soap,” while training with comedy legend Phil Foster.
Bonnie began her recording career under the wings of songwriting pair, the Late Jack Keller (“Venus in Blue Jeans,” “Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool”) & the Late Bob Russell (“Crazy He Calls Me,” “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore”) who wrote two songs for her, “Façade” & “It’ll Break Your Heart.” Both songs were recorded & featured in motion pictures . She also starred in Arch Oboler’s recently re-released 3-D cult film, Domo Arigato.
In addition to her work as a singer, actress & recording artist, Bonnie has always found time to work for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as a spokesperson & has served on the Board of Directors of Calvary Hospital Golf & Tennis Classic Benefit for their cancer hospice. She was also the Program Director for Hearts & Voices, a volunteer organization that provided musical entertainment for AIDS patients in seven New York City Hospitals.
On Sunday, April 14th at 3pm, Bonnie Sher will grace the stage at Stage 72 at Triad, sharing her magical voice. MOMENTS is Bonnie’s celebration of four decades in TV, film, stage & recording. Her band is pretty magical, too, with Musical Director Mario Sprouse on piano, Ratzo Harris on bass, Marshal Rosenberg on percussion & Grammy Award-winner, Wayne Cobham on trumpet.
