About This Show

Before Genya Ravan created the first successful all-female rock band in 1962, she was Genyusha Zelkovicz, a young girl fleeing Nazi Poland with her family in search of a hopeful start in America. After passing through Ellis Island and moving into the Lower East Side of New York City, Genyusha, now “Goldie”, faces grief, poverty, abuse, and loss of identity. With no one to turn to, she forges on her own path. Cheesecake Girl takes us through the wild ride of a unique rock star’s beginning, the harrowing events that would shape her career, and an impromptu performance at Lollipop Lounge that would change her life forever.
