What It's All About
The show... The concept of the show follows the line of a young woman's love relationship, common to many of the love relationships that we experience. It begins with that first meeting where she becomes enraptured, smitten by a handsome man just within reach. And as blushes turn to crushes,she finds herself head over heels in love. But is it really love; is there more that she needs to examine? The songs detail the angst and uncertainty that can come with love relationships. Has this lady come to a zenith with the way she deals with herself? Is she depending heavily on the comfortof another? Originally created with 11 songs, the show has been slightly lengthened to included a 12th song and also a vibrant poem that mirrors this woman's search. The songs range in style from jazz to blues to R&B and even musical theatre from some of America's brightest composers. Together, they meld into a melodious masala, rejoicing in all that we mustendure to embody love completely. Sometimes we need to give way to abandon. Other times we must stand still, knowing that we are enough. And no matter what occurs -everywhere there is love. The Lady...
