Kathleen Turner dazzles for one night only in new one-woman show

Stage and screen icon Kathleen Turner returns to the New York stage in Kathleen Turner: Finding My Voice.

The show documents the remarkable behind-the-scenes journey of Turner’s astonishing career. Peppered with music from the great American songbook, Turner sings hits including “It’s Only a Paper Moon”, “I’d Rather Be Sailing”, “On the Street Where You Live”, and “Every Time We Say Goodbye,” showcasing her trademark husky voice.

Finding My Voice is a deeply personal show packed with humor, great music, and one of a kind insights from the lady herself. Directed by Andy Gale (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Audra McDonald with The Boston Pops for PBS), Finding My Voice features musical direction, arrangements and accompaniment from Mark Janas (Hello Dolly! With Marilyn Maye, The Salon) and the production designer is Ed McCarthy.

Turner developed Finding My Voice in 2017 with Gale and Janas, and the show has played both nationally and internationally. The Guardian called it “A triumphant roar from Hollywood royalty” while Time Out raved, “Undeniably fabulous.”

Turner herself revealed: “In the show, I talk about growing up and how I started acting 42 years ago; then into present-day projects and the wild variety of work that I do. I want to take audiences inside my life – about me, my adventures, what I’ve learned and what I believe in.”

Turner has some serious theatre chops. She was nominated for the Tony Award in 1990 for playing Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and in 2005 for her performance as Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? On Broadway, Turner has also starred in The Graduate and she toured as Texas-based political columnist Molly Ivins in Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins. She starred in Joan Didion’s solo drama, The Year of Magical Thinking at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.

Finding My Voice will play The Town Hall on December 16 at 8PM. Tickets can be purchased at KathleenTurnerOnTour.com or by calling (212) 997-6661.
