Thomas will be joined by singers Kelly King, Anne Fraser Thomas and Kat Hennessy. "The girls will be working as a group, providing three-part harmonies," Thomas said in a statement. "They will also be featured as solo artists." Each week will also feature a guest artist. Kicking off the Monday-night series will be Smokey Joe's Cafe's Ramona Keller.
Audiences can expect to hear hits made famous by Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and other divas of today.
Bob Pontarelli, who runs Industry-Bar, said in a statement, "The Divas night is a weekly salute to all the divas we know and love from film, recordings and video...from Madonna, Tina, and Aretha, to Gaga and Beyoncé...the list is endless! The centerpiece each week is a live tribute featuring the biggest, belting, show-stopping voices on Broadway. What's not to love?"
"Diva will hit home with the theatre crowd," Thomas added. "It'll be a brand new show every week, featuring diva material - all the songs that fans like to hear, but in a new light. This is really a way to feature and celebrate some wonderful female talent."
