Parker Genné is a singer-actor-dancer-teacher from Minneapolis, who has been bringing her hit cabaret comedy show Ms. Luisa Eats to stages in Minneapolis, San Francisco, New York and Scotland since 2008.
With co-collaborator Emilia Allen, Parker launched a new theater company, Impossible Salt, at the 2014 Minnesota Fringe Festival. The Star Tribune said of their premier production, Tatterhood, “Genné is feral in the title role…in this wildly imaginative production.” Genné has appeared in numerous theater, music-theater and musical productions, and works as a lead Teaching Artist for Kairos Alive!, a performing arts and arts education organization that empowers elders and their community to build healthier lives through dance, music, storytelling and research.
Her successful cabaret show, Ms. Luisa Eats, has had much acclaim at both the Edinburgh and Minnesota Fringe Festivals and continues to be performed in Minneapolis/Saint Paul. Ms. Luisa hosts a vaudeville show, collaborating and performing with some of the best improvisational actors, musicians, side-show artists and drag queens in the Twin Cities; and also has been part of a variety of shows with other musicians and performers.
