“Fortunately, cabaret isn’t dying — not with people like Dorothy Bishop hitting the boards. Blessed with a voice capable of opera, Broadway, and pop, she creates funny but appreciative portraits of the women we love. Dorothy Bishop is the best drag queen in town who’s not a drag queen. Surrender to Dorothy!” – Michael Musto, Out • March 2016
Dorothy Bishop was a nationally televised finalist in Season Four of America’s Got Talent. She has thrilled New York audiences for years with her incredible voice, glamorous costumes, and wicked sense of humor. Solo appearances include Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater, Lincoln Center at Alice Tully Hall, Feinstein’s 54 Below, The Bon Soir, Town Hall, The Triad Theater, and is currently in her third year at the famous Metropolitan Room in New York City with her critically acclaimed one woman musical extravaganza, The Dozen Divas Show.
Dorothy graduated from Yale University School of Music and has sung pretty much every diva opera role in the lyric repertoire. She toured with Faye Dunaway in the first Broadway National Tour of Terrence McNally’s Tony Award winning show Master Class, and was guest soloist with Skitch Henderson and The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall.
“Briefly ducking behind a screen, making quick changes of dresses and wigs, uber-talented Dorothy Bishop transforms herself into one female superstar after another … The topper came when she sang in her own voice— sensationally. Dorothy is dynamite.” – Rob Lester, Cabaret Scenes • May 2014
One day at an opera audition, the casting director marveled at her remarkable resemblance to the current 2008 VP candidate, Sarah Palin. Dorothy spent the next three years working as a Sarah Palin impersonator, and also performing her pop opera headline show on the luxury ships including the Queen Mary 2, The QE2, and Regent Seven Seas. In addition to seeing the world and singing with some of the top bands and entertainers, Dorothy was featured on CNN, Good Morning America, and ABC for her hilarious coverage of Occupy Wall Street as “Sarah Palin”.
A consummate musician with new talent impersonating other celebrities, Dorothy was soon asked to create a show saluting many great divas of our time including Cher, Adele, Dolly, Barbra, Stevie Nicks, Kristin Chenoweth and even Metropolitan Opera Diva – Renee Fleming. A natural comedian and versatile vocalist, Dorothy rose to the occasion and created this show, which has since been nominated for two Broadway World Awards, two Mac Awards, and a monthly open run at the beautiful Metropolitan Room in New York through December 2018.
Other prominent engagements this season include her OffBroadway debut in the new runaway hit parody, Spamilton, written by Tony Award winning Gerard Alessandrini of Forbidden Broadway fame. She is scheduled to guest star in Spamilton through January 2017.
“Very funny — and not at all meanspirited! She somehow taps into the stars’ immense likability factor.” – Brian Kellow, Opera News • April 2014
