Accidentally booked as an all-female country band, a group of classically trained musicians go “From Chopin to Country” while trying to save the grand reopening of a debt-ridden saloon. This off-Broadway crowd-pleaser ran for years at the Minetta Lane Theatre, and will be directed by creator and original cast member Mary Murfitt. Joanna plays the part of the cellist, Lee, and is happy to return to beautiful Sarasota after the 2008 production of “Outlaws and Angels.”

I’ve been working on a 45-minute piece, and I’d love to have you join me at its very first iteration, at a lovely intimate space at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art.
LONELY GIRL AND THE SUBWAY HERO
APRIL 14, 7:30PM
Musical monologuist Joanna Parson’s Non-Intrusive Subway Musician (as heard on WNYC’s “The Next Big Thing” and Caroline’s Comedy Club) finds herself falling into the subway tracks… and falling in love. A tale of the intersection between shyness and fame, tabloid reporters and street musicians, mysterious celebrities, second chances, and a flower shop under the blue line where guitars and gerberas transport you with a song.
Part of their Thursday Night Musicals! series.
Tickets $20.00 at the door, or buy tickets here:

The Great Unknown
Book by William Hauptman; Music and Lyrics by Jim Wann.
Spring, 1869: one-armed Civil War hero John Wesley Powell seeks to unite a torn nation with an unprecedented expedition through the Grand Canyon. Powell and his brother Walter, an Andersonville POW survivor, sail down the perilous Colorado River with a crew of war veterans, while his wife Emma Dean becomes ensnared in expansionist politics. What lies in the undiscovered land ahead? With a score incorporating bluegrass, country, folk, and environmental elements, The Great Unknown is an American musical adventure.
Tom Hewitt (Dracula, Rocky Horror), who will return to Broadway’s Chicago Sept. 13 for a limited run, is cast as Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell. The cast will also include Dan Amboyer as Walter, Kristin Maloney as Emma and Bobby Daye (Shrek) as Somers.
