"You’ll get a kick from Champagne!
San Francisco Chronicle
Connie’s finest moment occurs when her voice eclipses all else, grabbing hold of a song like a 100-dollar tip and living up to the reward with passion paid in full.
San Francisco Sentinel
From the moment she steps onstage, Champagne is pitch-perfect.

Connie Champagne began her eclectic career with roles at San Francisco’s Magic Theatre and Theatre on the Square, and holds an MFA from the American Conservatory Theatre. She was recruited by Vegas In Space director Phillip R. Ford to portray the cult heroine Neely O’Hara in his long-running stage adaptation of Valley of the Dolls, which inspired her interest in drag as a theatrical form. An “unwitting pioneer of the Cocktail Nation,” Champagne was the winner of the SF Weekly Wammie Award for Outstanding Cabaret Performer for her work with Scrumbly Koldewyn in Connie Champagne and her Tiny Bubbles.
Well-known for her roles portraying Judy Garland, Champagne first appeared as the legendary star in the Off-Broadway production of Christmas With The Crawfords. New York Times critic Neil Genzlinger described Champagne’s performance as “a subtle masterpiece of parody and homage.” Champagne again received rave notices for her performance as Garland 'this time on the other side of the rainbow' in the Los Angeles production of Judy’s Scary Little Christmas directed by Broadway legend Kay Cole, for which she won the Ovation Award� for Best Actress in a Musical.
