Internationally acclaimed New York singer, actress and impressionist, Christina Bianco heads to Johannesburg this Easter to perform for the first time at Montecasino’s Teatro.
Popular local singer, actor and award-winning musical theatre performer Craig Urbani, currently on stage at The Teatro playing the leading role of Dr Frank-N-Furter in the Rocky Horror Show, joins Bianco as special guest artiste. Multi award-winning arranger and music director Bryan Schimmel conducts the accompanying live 9-piece band featuring top SA musicians.
Having captured international acclaim as a YouTube sensation with her ‘diva’ impression videos, Bianco went on to gain over 25 million views. Dubbed ‘the girl of a thousand voices,’ Christina has performed on major television programs such as The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Queen Latifah Show and The Today Show in the US; and The Paul O’Grady Show, This Morning and The Imitation Game in the UK.
A two-time Drama Desk Award nominee, Bianco has performed her critically acclaimed concerts to sold out crowds in New York City and across the U.S.A.

This past fall, she completed her second UK concert tour titled, First Impressions.
Bianco recently made concert debuts in Switzerland, Spain and in Australia, at The Sydney Opera House. She frequently performs with major US and Canadian symphonies.
