Through stories and song, Lauren examines the creative genius and conflicted desires of two of folk music’s most enduring artists. Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are widely known to be among the best and most prolific songwriters of their generation. Less known about the fellow Canadian artists is that they had a relationship early in their careers that lasted only a few months, but had a lasting effect on their work. Many have speculated as to why the relationship didn’t last, and that’s what Lauren Fox explores here – BOTH SIDES – through their music, their histories, their triumphs and heartbreaks. Lauren delves into the meaning behind the songs, giving us a better understanding of a painter and a poet who mesmerized the world through song. Highlights of the show include Mitchell’s “Chelsea Morning”, “River”, and “Both Sides Now”, and Cohen’s “Suzanne”, “Bird on a Wire”, and “Hallelujah”.

Another rave from William Wolf, President of the Drama Desk: “…there is electricity in the air. It is thrilling to observe how accomplished she is, much in the way it always is when you discover talent and share the excitement over a performance that makes you want to tell everyone that they must see for themselves. Ms. Fox is indeed that rarity.” Read the full review here.
