Amador alum performing her 'Why CAN'T a Woman...?' in SF

by Jeremy Walsh

Amador Valley High School alumna Lianne Marie Dobbs is bringing her one-woman show from New York City to the Bay Area for one night only.

"The show 'Why CAN'T a Woman...?' is filled with familiar Broadway songs and sassy standards that were originally written for men to sing, now reintroduced in a 'new silhouette' thanks to brief passages from beloved books by female authors -- books which were borrowed repeatedly from the Pleasanton Library or purchased from local storefronts like The Bookstore on Hopyard," Dobbs told the Weekly. "I always have fun with my audience when I perform, and that's largely thanks to growing up in a community who listens and supports young progressive minds."

The performance is set for next Thursday (March 16) at 8 p.m. at Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco. For tickets, go to
