WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Late nights in prohibition-era NYC you could find an iconic singer, Helen Morgan, perched on the piano at her club, relying too much on brandy and 'torching' until even the most hardened gangster wept into his beer."
2013 MetroStar Winner Lauren Stanford will bring Helen Morgan, to life in More Than You Know. Directed by Eric Michael Gillett with Music Direction by Mike Pettry, the play contains songs the chanteuse made famous, including Jerome Kern's "Bill" and "Why Was I Born." Stanford wrote the piece, described as a dramatic recreation of Helen Morgan's 1932 cabaret act.
