…the kind of morally challenging, aesthetically accomplished work that could thrive with audiences who don’t need to feel good to enjoy musical theater.”
…an extraordinary and exquisite chamber musical…
a beguiling piece of musical theatre…
I want to express my deep gratitude for lending your musical talent to UN Women
to create the first theme song of a UN agency. Our launch of ‘One Woman’ was
an unprecedented success in drawing attention to women’s empowerment.”
