Quinn Lemley

Quinn Lemley star of Burlesque to Broadway and The Heat Is On! A life in concert celebrating Rita Hayworth.

How does a nice Midwestern girl end up in sequins and feathers singing The Standards? Well, Quinn came out of the womb performing. By the age of four, she was starring at her parents chicken n ribs restaurant, The Buffy, hence the feathers, singing to the diverse customers from executives to the local flasher. Far Out Foxy Lady from A Far Out Land enhanced her desire for flashy glamour. Quinn’s passion and education for classic films, especially Rita Hayworth, Big Band, Broadway, Burlesque Music and Humor came from her best friend, Granny Lemley, who shared stories and music transporting Q into another world. By 16, in Bordeaux, France, she was the youngest opera student of the great diva, Christianne Castelli. When she started swinging “O mio Babbino caro”, it was evident Broadway, jazz and the The American Songbook were her calling! Her first femme fatale role was in The Great American Backstage Musical at Interlochen Arts Academy before heading off to the Big Apple at NYU.
