KATHLEEN TURNER Will Play Town Hall With FINDING MY VOICE On December 16th

Stage and screen icon Kathleen Turner returns to the New York stage in a one-woman show for one performance only - Kathleen Turner: Finding My Voice (www.KathleenTurnerOnTour.com) which documents the remarkable behind-the-scenes journey of her astonishing career. Finding My Voice will play The Town Hall on December 16 at 8PM, producer Ken Davenport recently announced.

Peppered with music from the great American songbook, Kathleen sings hits including "It's Only a Paper Moon", "I'd Rather Be Sailing", "On the Street Where You Live", and "Every Time We Say Goodbye," showcasing her trademark husky voice. Finding My Voice is a deeply personal show packed with humor, great music, and one of a kind insights from the lady herself.

Directed by Andy Gale (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, Audra McDonald with The Boston Pops for PBS), Finding My Voice features musical direction, arrangements and accompaniment from Mark Janas (Hello Dolly! With Marilyn Maye, The Salon) and the production designer is Ed McCarthy.

Turner developed Finding My Voice in 2017 with Gale and Janas, and the show has played both nationally and internationally. The Telegraph cheered, "Hollywood legend mixes the poignant with the political...it's a blast," while The Guardian applauded, "A triumphant roar from Hollywood royalty." Time Out raved, "Undeniably fabulous," while The Edinburgh Reporter exclaimed "Inspirational and charismatic storytelling from a bona fide stage and screen legend." Theatermania said, "Turner has such a strong sense of her own voice and its transfixing magic. You can't help but listen and get lost in her stories and song," and The Chicago Sun Times agrees, calling the show "charming and wonderfully entertaining."

"In the show, I talk about growing up and how I started acting 42 years ago; then into present-day projects and the wild variety of work that I do," said Kathleen Turner. "I want to take audiences inside my life - about me, my adventures, what I've learned and what I believe in. In Finding My Voice, there's no hiding behind a character, but I really enjoy that."

Tickets for Finding My Voice are $57 - $97 with premium tickets available. Premium ticket holders receive a signed headshot of Ms. Turner.

Tickets can be purchased at www.KathleenTurnerOnTour.com or by calling (212) 997-6661.
