“The Baroque Cycle” (Best Singer winner & Best Score nominee, New York Winterfest 2022) is an innovative one-woman musical theatre piece that combines the beauty of classical music with the wild abandon of musical comedy. It’s the story of a young Classically trained soprano who moves to New York to become a Broadway star. Unfortunately, things don’t go so well for her. Everything from terrible auditions to harrowing subway rides to even tidying her apartment become a nightmare. How does she cope? By retreating to a Baroque music recital in her mind where she can freely sing about the dumpster fire of her life! Come, join her for a breakdown Bach would be proud of.
