Rosalinde Block Brings Cabaret From New York to Portland

Rosalinde Block Brings Cabaret From New York to PortlandPerformer/musician Rosalinde Block brings her multi-media solo show, "Drama of the Gifted Grownup, A Musical Journey," to Portland from New York to the Board Room Cabaret in conjunction with Triangle Productions March 22-24, and to Shout House Studio, hosted by Hand2Mouth Theatre on March 25th, just four performances!

"Drama of the Gifted Grownup" is a solo show with music written and performed by New York artist and Billboard Award-Winning musician Rosalinde Block. The show kicks off its 3 city tour in Portland, followed by Portland, Maine, then Chicago. This multi-media show features original shows and artwork created by Block, and comes to the West Coast after sold-out shows at the John Burroughs Theatre in St. Louis, and the New York Theater Festival.

The show bursts with life and humor as Rosalinde recreates her 40-plus-year journey navigating the 1970s and 80s pre-funk music scene in the city that never sleeps. With the biggest names in the business popping up at every bend, turn and roadblock, she charges forward through life and love in her unstoppable quest to be at the top. Rosalinde's life in the music business skewed from recording her first demos at CBS to working in over 150 piano bars. Fast-forward to marriage, divorce and single-parenthood, her career careened into writing and illustrating children's books, where even landing a top agent didn't detour her from those Catch-22 moments, "You're a fresh, new voice. But you're an unknown." Finding herself the sudden caregiver for her dying ex-husband and survival-guide for her son through his fatherless teens, her forward motion in the business halted, and all goals went on the back burner. As the 11th hour of life came and went on a daily basis, it suddenly occurred to her to ask, "what would happen if nothing ever happened?"
