About this show

Created and performed by Amber Martin, Been On A Train and Other Lofty Tales is an intimately twisting, turning and rocking evening of meticulously chosen musically visual pieces from Amber's strange and fascinating repertoire (including mostly new works). The tales, a skewering of pop and music culture, occur on or near a series of trains with the audience along for the ride. Noted as a performer of many faces and voices with boundless energy to burn, performer Amber Martin has left such celebrity audience members as Joyce Dewitt, John Cameron Mitchell, and Justin Bond screaming for more. Throughout the performance, Amber seamlessly morphs from character to character without leaving the stage. Been On A Train and Other Lofty Tales introduces us to a bevy of intercontinental characters on a journey of salvation. Some are on the Poverty Train looking for quarters and some are on the outside looking in, while others are simply looking for some conversation and a little acceptance. Blending monologues, movement, music, heartfelt reminiscences, and acid-capped comedy with a pristine, multi-octave range singing voice, Been On A Train and Other Lofty Tales is Amber Martin's own serio-comic multiple-personality trip without "breaking glass".
