Mimi Cohen presents this tribute to the life and music of the iconic 1960s singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. The play weaves 15 of Ms. Nyro’s classic, passionate and intensely felt pop songs through the story of Nyro’s early years in the music industry. Mimi Cohen, through her strong vocal prowess and funny characterizations of real people and events in Laura Nyro’s life, illuminates the rite of passage girls experience when becoming women. We girls seem to lose our voices, but Cohen shows one girl who carried on and never lost her voice: Laura Nyro. — EventSource
Mimi Cohen is a cousin who is near and dear to my heart, visit her site. If you miss this run, the show will run again next month, and again in March.
Here is a taste of Laura Nyro’s music that Mimi delivers spot on.
