Hangar Theatre Presents Carole King, Joni Mitchell & Laura Nyro Tribute BACK TO THE GARDEN Tonight
After completing its 39th Mainstage season, Hangar Theatre announces the fall performances of Back to the Garden, a musical tribute to folk-rock trailblazers Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Laura Nyro, as a continuation of its annual CabarETC series playing September 20-21 at 8:00pm. Challenged by the traditional images of women in the music-industry, these prolific singer/songwriters paved the way for women in music, art, and life by bravely exploring territory outside the accepted confines of popular music. Back to the Garden celebrates these women, their influence and inspiration, directed by Amy Jones and featuring Melissa Hammans, Maddy Wyatt, and Shaleah Adkissonperforming with Julia Adamy (bass), Molly MacMillan(keys), with Barbara Merjan (drums), and Sue Terwilliger (guitar).
The Hangar's CabarETC series (pronounced cabar-etcetera) is comprised of special cabaret evenings featuring intimate, nightclub style performances by Broadway stars and local artists. Audience members may sit at café tables or in theatre seats while enjoying light fare and libations including beer and wine.
