Becoming…the Queen 2.0

When One Coronation in a Lifetime is Not Enough

The Reviews are IN!

“…diva Regina Zona ruled the stage and conquered the hearts of her audience with the most splendid debut show this reviewer has ever had the privilege of attending: confident, sparkling, personal, and a triumph from start to finish.”

Jennie Litt, – Read the entire review HERE 

This show was more than a fine cabaret debut. It also documented a successful reinvention of self by a musical artist with deeply engrained instincts as an entertainer. Zona reminds us that, while a singing voice may change, a bold, self-assured theatricality can carry you over from one stage to another.”

“…the richness of the queen’s voice and the depth of her interpretations has to come from many years of experience. It is true that the diva has had an extensive career in opera…and classical recital, but none of that accounted for her flawless diction and dramatic and comic phrasing that got to the heart of the lyrics of her selections.”

After decades of showing off in the opera and classical singing world, Regina has begun her exciting SECOND ACT as a Cabaret Artist.

Following her critically acclaimed one-woman show, “Becoming…the Queen: One Woman’s Self-Help Journey to Authenticity,” internationally recognized vocalist, Regina Zona presented her debut Cabaret in 2019 which celebrates how good it is to be “QUEEN” in her career, life and love.

“Becoming…the Queen 2.0: When One Coronation is a Lifetime is Not Enough” is an epic show that showcases every style from opera to broadway to jazz and takes the audience on a journey right through Regina’s life as an opera Diva (specifically the iconic Queen of the Night), her secret desire to be a Fosse dancer, her fulfilling career as a voice teacher and how she is growing older gracefully and fabulously!

Regina’s phenomenal Music Director is Jonathan K. Parks and the show is directed by the incomparable Lina Koutrakos. She is joined by two fabulous musicians, Sean Murphy on bass and Mike Lunoe on drums.
