Playwright Brooke Allen's comedic cabaret "The Life and Death of Madam Barker," with music and lyrics by John Fournier, currently onstage at Red Tape Theatre. Molly Brennan plays Madam Barker, a brassy, history-hopping cabaret songstress who nightly relays her life story alongside a clownish ensemble. But this, Barker dramatically tells us early on, will be her final performance in the role. And you can't just replace Madam After all, she is the quintessential Chicago girl.
