The New York-born, Wexford-based Elizabeth Rose-Browne is known to many people as a behind-the-scenes public relations manager with Wexford Festival Opera but she has more strings to her bow, being a classically-trained singer, actress and improv comedian who is well-used to the stage in her own right.

Elizabeth is bringing her own comedy music show The Girlfriend Cabaret to the Jerome Hynes Theatre in the National Opera House for one night only on Saturday, February 11 at 8 pm.

Accompanied by Eithne Corrigan, she will the audience through a hilarious exploration of girlfriends past and present through songs and stories and music from Gershwin to Kurt Will and Randy Newman in a performance that will appeal to men and women.

Elizabeth is familiar to Wexford audiences from previous work with Wexford Light Opera Society, Wexford Improv Group, Newline Theatre and recently, in the Eoin Colfer and Liam Bates musical 'Noel'.

Her self-penned shows include 'What Makes Women Special' which was performed last year in honour of International Women's Day and Mother's Day.
