Written with Amy Rosenthal
Featuring excerpts from the autobiographies Midnight Baby and BogTrotter by Dory Previn
Directed by Cal McCrystal
With Kate Dimbleby and Naadia Sheriff (Musical Director, vocals and piano)
Acclaimed singer and storyteller, Kate Dimbleby, accompanied by Naadia Sheriff on piano, explores the extraordinary songbook and story of cult favorite Dory Previn. The queen of 70's confessional songwriters, Previn sang songs of emancipation and sweet revenge. Kate and Naadia delve into the life of a vastly under-appreciated songwriter 40 years after the release of her most successful album Mythical Kings and Iguanas.
Kate's appearance at 59E59 is her American debut!
