Composer Carmel Dean Presents WELL-BEHAVED WOMEN At Joe's Pub
What would Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo, Billie Jean King, and Malala Yousafzai sound like if you heard them sing? Find out in Well-Behaved Women, a new collection of songs by award-winning composer Carmel Dean, presented for one-night-only on January 25, 2020 at Joe's Pub (425 Lafayette Street).
Directed by Schele Williams, the powerful stories of these groundbreaking women (and many more) will be told through original songs, celebrating the ways in which these women's bad-ass behavior helped them make history.
On January 25, their stories will be brought to life by some of Broadway's leading ladies, including LaChanze, Liz Callaway, Bonnie Milligan, Barbara Walsh, Katie Thompson, Natascia Diaz, Kuhoo Verma, Melissa Rose Hirsh, and more.
