WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Built around creator Bree Benton's portrayal of Poor Baby Bree, an archetypal waif, I Am Going to Run Away weaves a tragicomic narrative of innocence and loss around seventeen obscure vaudeville and parlor songs (dating from the 1890s -1930s), collected through archival research into period sheet music, along with Victorian-era sentimental poetry and Benton's original writing. Songs in the show include: "I'm Just a Rose (in the Devil's Garden)," "I'll Pin Another Petal on the Daisy," and "Soap, the Oppressor." The models for Benton's alter ego include icons of silent and early sound cinema (Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, The Little Rascals, The Bowery Boys), filmed documents of forgotten vaudeville comedians (the Foy family, Joe Frisco), and vocalists from Eddie Cantor to Ruby Keeler.
