Go back in time to 1958, where Cathy Dresden, America’s big hearted songbird (as played by Joe Hartman) is winning viewers across the country with her full throated voice and plucky demeanor. Her new show, Cathy Dresden: An Old Fashioned Girl is both a gentle ribbing, and a loving tribute to the sentiment and splashiness of the 1950s, and of the great female vocalists of that made it so memorable.
Cathy Dresden was first endeared to television viewers everywhere thanks to her appearances on America’s favorite competitive talent show “Tony Polanko’s Nationwide Hour of Power!” And while Cathy did not take home the ultimate prize of $2,000 (losing to Teeny-Tina's Tiny Triplets", America's sweetheart Siamese triplette plate spinners) the exposure it won her jumpstarted her singing career and allowed her to embark on her "Butterchurn Tour" of the dairy states. But while she considers America's farmer's the "true backbone of this great country", this former small town girl is thrilled to be in Manhattan. Watch her singing and swinging the hits of Broadway and the pop charts, by songsmiths like Jerome Kern, Jule Styne, The Gershwins, as ponders what it means to be an old fashioned girl. See the girl that Fred Astaire says “Can’t dance can’t say no to a schnitzel. Can sing a little!”
