About the Event
Told from a jail cell, the new musical, Doing Time with Lavinia (formerly Missing Person), is the raucously boozy tale of Lavinia Draper, fallen socialite and one-time stand-by for Broadway star Betty Buckley, who is eternally chasing her pipe dream of becoming an entertainer. This is a hilarious cautionary tale of a woman whose dreams have been repeatedly thwarted* by a self-sabotaging addiction to drama and other various substances. Lavinia wakes up from a black out in a holding cell in South Florida on a drunk and disorderly charge. Finding herself once again trapped by her own dysfunction, she is actually missing a real opportunity to finally prove herself as an entertainer. Doing Time with Lavinia is written and performed by Susan Campanaro, with an original score written by Lynn Portas and directed by and developed with Christopher Scott. The infamous Lavinia Draper is a character that Ms. Susan Campanaro, a beloved fixture on the New York Cabaret scene has developed through her 20 plus years’ experience.
