Songbird - 2015 - Off-Broadway

Dreams, ambition, love, and heartbreak. SONGBIRD is a striking new show about a fading country star coming home to Nashville. After many years away, Tammy returns to the Honky Tonk that launched her music career to help the son she abandoned launch his own. But with jealousy and self-destruction (along with copious amounts of whiskey) fueling this homecoming, will Tammy's arrival do more harm than good?

SONGBIRD by Michael Kimmel (The Last Goodbye) is based on Anton Chekov's The Seagull, and features a sultry soundtrack filled with heartbreaking ballads and soaring anthems that pay homage to music writer/lyricist Lauren Pritchard's (Spring Awakening) Tennessee roots.

Schedule

Running Time: Two hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission

59E59 Theatres [Theatre A]

(New York, NY)

I admit this is an absolutely personal, totally one-sided view of what gave one man opera thrills last year and what I will look back on with delight. Some are old works, some are new, some are individual performers, some are ensembles, some are complete productions, some are merely the highlight of an evening, most are domestic, a few are foreign. In any case, as the new decade begins, I recall that these are the vocal highlights that made my heart beat a little faster and made me look forward to the year ahead.
