The Joni Mitchell Musical
"Both Sides Now: The Joni Mitchell Musical" which will be staged @ The Generic Theater
When the dust settles, Joni Mitchell may stand as the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century. Uncompromising and iconoclastic, Mitchell confounded expectations at every turn; restlessly innovative, her music evolved from deeply-personal folk stylings into pop, jazz, avant-garde and even world music, presaging the multi-cultural experimentation of the 1980s and 1990s by over a decade. Fiercely independent, her work steadfastly resisted the whims of both mainstream audiences and the male-dominated recording industry — while Mitchell's records never sold in the same numbers enjoyed by contemporaries like Carole King, Janis Joplin or Aretha Franklin, none experimented so recklessly with their artistic identities or so bravely explored territory outside of the accepted confines of pop music, resulting in a creative legacy which paved the way for many performers. Starring Cayley Waldo as Joni, "Both Sides Now" is a musical tribute that recreates and celebrates many of the songwriter's memorable concert performances.
