Description

The Coldharts present "The Legend of White Woman Creek" as part of the Broken Union Tour. This one-night-only event is being hosted by La-De-Da Performing Arts and Erica Reid.

ABOUT THE SHOW
A thirteen-song cycle of love, betrayal and revenge, sung by the Ghost of Anna Morgan Faber.

Since the late 1800's, inhabitants of western Kansas and eastern Colorado have claimed to have witnessed the specter of a woman singing to herself at twilight, as she wanders along a dry, cracked stream-bed known as White Woman Creek.

Some say she was killed, some say she killed herself, others say worse… but to know the truth, you must hear Anna's song for yourself.

“The Legend of White Woman Creek” is a one-woman folk opera inspired by a ghost story that weaves a tale of frontier life and peril through thirteen original folk songs, based on the traditional music of the era. A blend of music, history and folklore, it explores the roots of American expansionism from the vantage of a spirit unable to rest until she sets the record straight.

★★★★★

“A series of narrative songs performed just perfectly… An absolute triumph of music, production and a mischievous willingness to unnerve.”
-Edmonton Journal

★★★★★

“Her voice is a trained heart tugging tool, and she expertly controls her vast range… from soft murmurs to cries so powerful you’ll need to have some tissues handy.
-CBC

★★★★★

“No ordinary work of musical theater. Anything that can move an audience to tears (and a standing ovation) deserves the highest praise at the Fringe.”
-Edmonton Sun

“Not only the best show the Winter Mini-Fest, but one the most moving musicals I’ve seen in many moons.”
-Orlando Weekly
