WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Margo SeibertM is, according to USA Today, "a Broadway newcomer with a delicately compelling presence and a throbbing, textured singing voice that lets us hear the character coming out of her shell." This season, she has made her debut on the Great White Way singing the music of Ahrens & Flaherty in Rocky as well as giving a tour-de-force (and Drama Desk Nominated) performance in the original musical Tamar of the River. For Margo, this has been a season of rapid growth and discovery. Across the board, she has been recognized for her depth of character and nuanced vocal performance. "A superior singer," (WSJ), "Golden-voiced" (Huffington Post), "A lovely presence [with] slow boiling passion…marvelous to behold." (Time Out NY).
In Busy Being Free at 54 Below, joined by songwriter Jahn Sood, musical director Chris Fenwick and an excellent ensemble of musicians including Jeremy Yaddaw, Alan Stevens Hewitt, and Ben Golder-Novick, Margo will share the music that inspires her, tickles her, and speaks to this moment of finding herself in New York. "She will love them when she sees them. / They will lose her if they follow / And she only means to please them / And her heart is full and hollow / Like a cactus tree / While she's so busy being free."
