She’s equally comfortable singing gospel in church or belting out a Broadway tune on stage. Greta Oglesby performs this Saturday and Sunday at the Capri Theater in Minneapolis, including “Lot’s Wife,” a number she owned when she played the lead in Caroline, Or Change at the Guthrie Theater in 2009.
