Tony winner Laura Benanti will bring an all-star female lineup to Joe's Pub as creative producer for Spiral Bound, a new song cycle. The benefit concert is set for November 6 at 7:00 PM.
Spiral Bound features music by Miranda Ferriss Jones, with lyrics by Jones and Richard Edelman. Joining Benanti in the concert cast are Eva Noblezada, Lorna Courtney, Charity Angel Dawson, Andrea Macasaet, Kuhoo Verma, Eleri Ward, Madison Wechsler, Cherrye Davis, and Maria Wirries.
The song cycle, inspired by the poems of Richard Edelman, is a series of musical vignettes focused on love from the female perspective. Ticket sales will benefit nonprofits Maestra and Open Stage Project, both of which support female and nonbinary theatre artists including composers, musicians, and those in behind-the-scenes careers.
"Spiral Bound is about the women of our memories and imagination who demand their stories be told," Jones says. "I am humbled to have such a talented and diverse cast of femmes bringing these muses to life on stage."
