WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Diamonds and Rust revisits the cultural climate of the 1970's through the voices of ten talented women whose songs both reflected and inspired a generation. MAC Hanson Award winner, Lucille Carr-Kaffashan, celebrates the work of Joni Mitchell, Phoebe Snow, Carole King, Laura Nyro, Joan Baez, Carly Simon, Janis Ian, Melissa Manchester, Melanie Safka and Dory Previn - women whose words and music explored the huge societal shifts associated with the civil rights, women's liberation, and anti-war movements. Their songs challenge, soothe, and entertain us, all the while illuminating an emotional history of America during an era that changed our culture and the way we viewed the world. The show is directed by Eric Michael Gillett, and features Musical Director, David Brunetti, on piano, and Frank Wagner on bass.
