Disco diva Thelma Houston returns to the Seattle spiegeltent to reprise her role in the musical extravaganza, Hearts on Fire. While Thelma is perhaps best known for her 1977 smash hit “Don’t Leave Me This Way,” a dance-floor-filling rendition of the Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes classic, she’s had many more hits as well.
