The genius of Mason Jennings' music is its honesty: Only the very young or very courageous can afford to be so frank about themselves and the world. Still, after eleven albums, Jennings continues to be true to his experience, crafting songs that are equally striking and simple. No wonder this indie-troubadour sold 30,000 copies of his first two albums without a big label or P.R. push -- the music sold itself. Now, years later and with a loyal cult following, Jennings is touring the country in support of his latest effort, the critically lauded Always Been. While building on Jennings' rugged, acoustic early work, the album explores sunnier melodies and inspiring love songs. Watch this earnest and soulful artist perform live at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. Learn More
Not knowing that her mother has left the nest to gather food, Baby Bird decides to find her. While searching, Baby Bird meets an array of colorful characters - Cat, Dog, and Hen - each of whom she greets with the simple plea: are you my mother? Unfortunately for Baby Bird, neither Cat nor Dog nor Hen turns out to be her mother. Baby Bird, however, is persistent. She is determined to find her mother no matter what. Her courage is bolstered by the unlikely “family” of characters who are ready to lend a paw or a wing to help their friend.
Based on P.D. Eastman’s classic picture book for young readers, Are You My Mother? is ArtsPower’s enchanting musical about Baby Bird’s journey – an adventure that overflows with love, dedication, and friendship. Adapted for the stage by playwright and lyricist Greg Gunning and composer Richard DeRosa, Are You My Mother? shows children and adults alike how loss can be turned into empowerment and how Baby Bird ends up finding more than she is looking for.
The show is recommended for those ages 5-7 and runs 55 minutes.
