The Ladies of Lyric and Song”

Sharing the press release I received for this musical event -

Erin Guinup presents her new one-woman show, “The Ladies of Lyric and Song” on Saturday, November 16th at 7:30pm at the University of Puget Sound’s Schneebeck Concert Hall.  This performance is FREE to the community thanks to a grant from the
Tacoma Artist Initiative Program.

“The Ladies of Lyric and Song: A Musical Reflection on the Ground-Breaking Female
Composers and Lyricists of the American Musical Theatre” is a unique concert experience, incorporating theatrical elements, fascinating stories, and a wide variety of songs.  The history of 100 years of musical theatre is traced through the words and music of the women who helped shape it.  Music includes operetta, jazz, golden era, folk-rock, and contemporary musical theatre songs.

Directed by local theatre icon Patti Cohenour (Tony-nominated for Big River, Christine
Daae in original Broadway cast of Phantom of the Opera, and Gregory Award winner for
Edith/Little Edie in 5th Avenue’s recent production of Grey Gardens), Guinup is joined on stage by pianist Tim Strong.

Tacoma Opera, Rainier Family Opera, Capital Playhouse, Mormon Festival of the Arts, and Shakespeare in the Parking Lot.
