- Mary Lorson
Mary Lorson, a musician, composer and dramatist, grew up in the 60s and 70s in Westchester County, NY, land of corporate plenty... and plenty of dysfunction. For her performance memoir Signals, she sets some of her family anecdotes to contemporary music, and takes turns narrating and singing these tales, backed up by an eight-piece jazz/rock band. Lorson (vocals, guitar, piano, percussion) began her career over twenty years ago as the lead singer of Madder Rose, and since then has fronted the jazzy artrock group Saint Low and the trio the Soubrettes, scored several films with Billy Cote, and collaborated on other dramatic and musical projects. A visual backdrop will accompany the show.
