Wonder Woman spins into the Tip


What girl didn’t want to have a stylish bracelet that just happened to deflect bullets? Or a magic lariat? Or the ability to change outfits just by spinning? She’s the original Queen of Girl Power, the Amazonian Riot Grrrl who came to America to save the late seventies. She could kick-ass on any man, woman or mad scientist and look fabulous in her stars-and-stripes superhero ensemble doing it. She was the pop embodiment of feminism, and you could argue that every heroine since — real or imagined — owes her. The embodiment of Wonder Woman, in turn, was Lynda Carter. An azure-eyed singer from Arizona who won the 1972 Miss World USA pageant, Lynda went on to Hollywood in 1976 to win the role of Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, which would run on TV for three indelible years (and for eternity on cable and web). But she never gave up her first love, singing, and pursued it in four network specials, alongside the likes of Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, Tom Jones, and Merle Haggard, and beyond. Her 2009 CD, At Last, made it to the Billboard top ten. Now, en route to performing her acclaimed cabaret show at the Rrazz Room in San Francisco’s Hotel Nikko, she has graciously deigned to bring her enduring beauty, truth and superpowers to the first lunchtime Toast of the Tip, this Thursday, April 21 at 1:00 pm.
