Rush, who was formerly known as Jo Anna Lehmann, also wrote the one woman show, which tells the tale of Bernadette O'Connell, who "dreams of becoming a saint but becomes a Rockette instead. At the point of being martyred in a yellow Caprice on Sunset Boulevard, [she] undergoes a miraculous transformation." Walter Willison directs the musical evening, which is being offered Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 7 PM through the end of the year.
In addition to her Broadway work, Joanna Rush has also appeared Off Broadway in Grandma Sylvia's Funeral, Minnie's Boys: In Concert, Inside Out and Broadway Scandals of 1928. Her film credits include "The Night They Raided Minsky's," "Street Justice" and "A Killing Affair."
