WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Join Tony Award winner (and brand-new mom) Laura Benanti and her own mom Linda Benanti on a musical journey through the special relationship between a mother and daughter. Touching and humorous, this show is a one-of-a-kind event!
Linda Benanti, an accomplished actor and singer who performed on Broadway, off-Broadway, and regionally, gave birth to Laura in 1979. In order to dedicate more time to being a hands-on mother, Linda transitioned out of performing and became a voice teacher with a flourishing studio in Kinnelon, New Jersey. Linda's last professional performance was in the 1981 revival of Brigadoon. The Story Goes On will mark Linda's return to the stage.
Laura Benanti began her Broadway career at the age of 18, starring opposite Richard Chamberlain in The Sound of Music. Since then, she has appeared in nine Broadway shows, been nominated for five Tony Awards, and continues to having a successful television career (Nashville). Laura began studying voice with her mother as a young child and is thrilled for this musical celebration of family. At the time of the concert, Laura's new baby will be three months old.
