Mary Lou Fallis
Mary Lou Fallis holds a unique position in the music scene as "Canada's foremost musical comedienne." Known to thousands of viewers and listeners across the country for the Bravo! television series Bathroom Divas, her CBC Radio series Diva Diaries, and to hundreds of theatre-goers for her ‘Primadonna’ series of one-woman shows, Ms. Fallis in her inimitable way, has re-invented the classical music comedy genre. Ms. Fallis was the music producer of the Gemini award winning Bathroom Divas, a new six-part reality TV series that quickly developed a cult following. Opera's answer to American Idol, Bathroom Divas featured Ms. Fallis as part of a jury selecting the grand-prize winner from hundreds of hopefuls in a nation-wide challenge. The queen of the Canadian stage, she is the heir apparent to the late “opera” comedienne Anna Russell, a fellow Canadian and a notable fan and friend of Ms. Fallis.
