Natural Women: Carole King, Carly Simon and Joni Mitchell
April 13 @ 2:00 pm
The 1960’s not only brought about tremendous changes in the sound and content of popular music, but also blazed a new path for women to follow toward self awareness and self realization. The music of the 60’s challenged the morals and values of American culture and redefined the role of the ‘woman’.
In a dramatic reading, “Words…Alive!” explores the backgrounds and intersecting lives of three, legendary, female song writers, – Carole King, Carly Simon and Joni Mitchell – who upended the expectations that had been laid out for women by previous generations. A dramatic curtain fell between the traditional manner in which each of these women grew up and in the rebellious adulthood each carved out for herself, which was heavily reflected in their music – which inspired women to follow in their footsteps, and since, nothing ever has been the same. They gave us a new soundtrack to our lives.
