Kate Ferber - One Child Born: The Music of Laura Nyro
Fri, October 14, 2016, 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
One woman. Ten characters. The songs of Laura Nyro. Written by Louis Greenstein and Kate Ferber, and directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, this acclaimed one-woman show celebrates the music and creative force of the late singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer whose pop masterpieces - including "Eli's Comin'," "And When I Die," "Save the Country" and "Stoney End" - topped the charts in the '60s and '70s. As innovative as Regina Spektor, as intimate as Norah Jones, singer-musician-actor Kate Ferber digs into Laura Nyro's disarming song catalogue in this original 75-minute tour de force. Between each classic song, Ferber portrays a character whose life was touched by Nyro's enduring music.
ONE CHILD BORN was developed through a residency at CAP21, and has sold out at New York City's Joe's Pub at the Public Theater and The Laurie Beechman Theater; Cambridge, MA's Oberon at A.R.T.; and Philadelphia's World Cafe Live (Downstairs).
