Not even an audience member collapsing could stop *Bernadette Robinson *'s stellar opening night performance of Songs for Nobodies on Saturday night at the *State Theatre Centre *.
During Robinson's acclaimed one-woman show, which impeccably channels the voices of legends such as *Edith Piaf *, *Maria Callas *and *Judy Garland *, an elderly man was rushed out of the theatre along with members of his family.
While the audience could see and hear the dramatics, Robinson, below, continued to perform onstage like a true professional, bringing down the house with a standing ovation.
At the opening night party, Robinson told _AAA _ she was glad the show had managed to make its way to Perth, but was working towards taking the show to Broadway after receiving advice from a big fan, none other than Academy Award winner *Geoffrey Rush *.
Robinson recently played three nights in the Big Apple to promote the show and blew the high-profile audience away, including an ecstatic *Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber *.Songs for Nobodies is on at the Theatre Centre until July 8.
