WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This show has been indefinately postponed. Her Song is a new musical revue celebrating the musical milestones of some of the most influential women songwriters of the past century. Co-conceived and co-written by Brenda and Barry Levitt, the show is subtitled "A Herstory of Women and Song." The cast features B.J. Crosby, Nina Hennessy, Terri Klausner, and Deborah Tranelli. Under the music direction of Barry Levitt, Her Song pours out a cornucopia of hits, novelty songs and obscure curiosities by a wide variety of some of the finest female tunesmiths America has produced. This panoramic compendium of songs by women, stretching as far back as Nora Bayes (who wrote the lyrics to "Shine On Harvest Moon for the Ziegfeld Follies of 1908) all the way to Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" and beyond, traces the accomplishments of multiple generations of women songwriters. Among those represented are Dorothy Fields, Carolyn Leigh, Peggy Lee, Billie Holliday, Edith Piaf, Carole King, Stevie Nicks, Carly Simon, Donna Summer, Marilyn Bergman, Betty Compden, and Cynthia Weil.
