RETURN ENGAGEMENT: One Child Born: The Music of Laura Nyro
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
March 15 - 18, 2017
"Nyro’s compositions, marked by rhythmic detours and vocal gymnastics, aren’t easy to play or sing, but Ferber has mastered both"
The Boston Globe
By Louis Greenstein and Kate Ferber
Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt

One woman. Ten characters. The songs of Laura Nyro.
After a sold-out run in 2015, One Child Born: The Music of Laura Nyro returns to OBERON. This acclaimed one-woman show, featuring Kate Ferber, celebrates the music and creative force of the late singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer whose pop masterpieces—including “Eli’s Comin’,” “And When I Die,” “Save the Country,” and “Stoney End”—topped the charts in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

 


There’s no such thing as a casual Laura Nyro fan. An archetypal singer-songwriter with a cult following, she tends to inspire deep devotion among admirers, many of whom still remember when and where they first heard her music. More

Rather than offer a biographical tale, a la the Carole King musical “Beautiful,” Ferber and her co-writer Louis Greenstein decided that “One Child Born” would tap into Nyro’s music through the adoring fans who worshipped the dark-haired, dark-eyed singer, who died in 1997 at 49. More
