in development…

“Marry Me ~ a Little”… a love/anxiety cabaret

Coming soon: a cabaret exploring the emotional journey from “I love you” to “I do” for commitment-phobes and hopeless romantics alike. We join the bride-to-be as she sings the bliss, beauty, wonder… terror, resistance and panic of loving and being loved, with music ranging from Kurt Weill through Stephen Sondheim to today‚Äôs new generation of theater composers. Known for her character-driven performances in contemporary musicals like Grey Gardens and john and jen, Katie brings her unique brand of storytelling-through-song to this light-hearted, open-hearted look at love, weddings, and all the messiness in between.
