Buy Tickets

Award-winning Chicago “Dreamgirl” Donica Lynn triumphs in an awe-inspiring homage to the legendary Aretha Franklin. Lynn earned critical acclaim, as well as Chicago’s Jeff Award and Black Theatre Alliance Award for her heart-wrenching performance in Dreamgirls. Chicago Tribune named her among the Chicagoans of the Year, citing “Lynn has stepped up to Chicago stardom.” Most amazingly, Lynn is a two-time brain tumor survivor, currently battling a third cancerous tumor. Her intimate stories of perseverance and Aretha’s soul-stirring music combine for a deeply spiritual and moving celebration. Uplifting signature songs include, “Respect,” “Think,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”

Chicago Sun-Times calls her “Show-stopping: Her astonishing voice and fierce acting chops should catapult her to stardom Notable theatre credits include: 42nd Street, Rock of Ages, Smokey Joe’s Cafe (Jeff Award Nomination), The Color Purple, Hair, Hairspray , Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, Footloose, Barnum, Confessions of a P.I.M.P. (opposite Andre DeSheilds), Lady in Denmark, Duke Ellington’s Queenie Pie, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Once On This Island, and A Wonder in My Soul. Television: Chicago Fire. As a recording artist, Donica has performed, recorded, lent backgrounds vocals, and toured with prominent artists including Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, New Kids on the Block, Natalie Cole, and Gladys Knight.
