Based on the 1908 novel by E.M. Forster, this adaptation combines gorgeous new music with a classic story, and adheres closer to the original novel than the 1985 movie, which starred Helena Bonham Carter as the sheltered English girl Lucy Honeychurch, who's introduced to passion and love while vacationing in Tuscany. While the unforgettable Edwardian characters remain, this enchanting production takes the story to lofty heights through a terrific score and memorable new songs. When Honeychurch meets the free-spirited George Emerson, she must decide whether to remain in the life that has been chosen for her, or break free and give up everything she knows in the name of love.

Cat Power was her awkward self, but she eventually calmed down and got into her groove and put on a great show. The audience was rather annoying. Constant getting up and down and shouting at the performer. This was supposed to be an intimate show, behave yourselves!
Cat Power’s Chan (pronounced “Shawn”) Marshall exists on a plane somewhat different than yours or mine, as anybody who has heard her sing knows. Her voice is unlike anyone you’ve heard before, combining raw intimacy with a gruff, chalky confidence, and while any attempt to interpret her lyrics comes up short, their plain-spoken lines belie an otherwordly perspective on primal human emotions. She’s abstract, but always honest and true. Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap and draws all the attention in the room and makes the world stop spinning. Her music seems to rise from nowhere, envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but they’re not sure what.
